I wouldn't take them off waivers for free.
Johnson is the cost of dumping those contracts.
Reyes does not have negative trade value.
Even Buerhle is being paid market rates.
At some point you need to add value to the major league team, which can often be hard for a non-preferred baseball destination like Toronto. The Blue Jays are massively better today than they were yesterday, by a very large margin, and if they have the payroll capacity that this does not limit their ability to keep young talent, then i really like it for the Jays.
