What is Miami getting in this trade at all.... Why would they do this?

Jensen > Kassian
Gillis dropped the ball on the Hodgson trade.
If Kassian ever becomes a 30 goal scorer I will pierce my nipples.

^^ Dont forget about Josh Johnson. 2 years ago he was one of the best pitchers in the NL. Then he suffered injuries and came back decent. This is an insane trade

im sad to see alvarez go. How can the jays afford reyes & buerhle did rogers stumble on a sack of money? or is miami going to eat part of their contracts.

seems like a good deal for the jays but i must admit i have no clue who justin nicolino is besides that he was one of our top prospects.

Wow, if this deal is legit then it looks like another powerhouse just emerged from the AL East! (Almost too good to be true!) Yanks, O's (from last season), Rays'll probably be around, hope the Sox rebound, now this; wow good job A.A., adding strong pieces like that (Izturis should also solidify the IF defensively) and their batting order looks pretty sick:

Reyes, Lawrie, Bautista, Rasmus, Encarnacion, Lind, Arencibia, Gose can probably leadoff and Izturis to round it out (plus Buck has pretty good power from behind the dish) and that pitching staff, like it was listed out earlier, has Buerhle, Johnson, Morrow, Romero and Happ as the #5 guy

Loria doing what Loria does best. All that griping about needing a new stadium to finally garner some revenue, they go out and actually spend money in free agency only to get the same results. Looks like the Marlins will go back to having the lowest payroll in the league.

As someone who doesn't follow baseball that closely, can someone tell me what makes reyes so impressive? His stats don't look that impressive to me, but he's a $100m ss?

Huge salary dump for the Marlins. Although they are getting some high quality youth in return. Totally worth it for the Jays as they have a lot of youth coming through the pipes. If they want to win during the Jose Bautista window they needed to make this trade.

Finally I can feel good about my cell phone bill.

50M next year alone in salary, looks like AA is finally off the $$$ leash, thanks largely in part to huge merchandise sales for the re-branding of the team, plus somewhere in the area of 25% more attendance.

Optimistic!! But what Blue Jays fan isn't.

The dude can hit and he can run

Career .291 average. He's had some injury problems but he can still hit. And he can leg out so many doubles and triples with that speed. Averages 15 triples a year. Can steal a ton of bases. The guy steals 55 bases a year on average. Racks up the runs, 110 a season on average. 4 time all star and also has a silver slugger to his name. This is a great day for the Jays

Who cares, do you see who you are getting in return. Pretty mediocre prospects for All-Stars id take any day

Considering how poorly they did last season after adding these players, I would assume its nothing more than a salary dump.
