    Blue Jays Acquiring J.Reyes, J.Johnson and M.Buerhle

    Escobar, Hechevarria, and possibly even Jose Reyes (although doubtful) in the deal. More to come...
    Go BLUE!!!

    Johnson, Buehrle, Reyes, and John Buck and Bonaficio

    Are they really dumping Reyes this soon? What a joke of a franchise. Contract them.

    Okay, that's got to be a mistake. I'm not buying that. Even the Marlins aren't THAT stupid. I like Escobar...but he's not that good. Not even close! I have no clue who that Hachevarria is though. That's just insane. No chance it's real.......right?
    Chapman to the rotation!!!! Do it already!!!!

    The Reds could learn a lot from the fish

    It's just like 1997, without the World Series (or playoffs... or winning record). I'm guessing the Blue Jays are taking on a lot of salary...
    Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.

    I really think Selig needs to step in and kill this one.

    Or tell Loria he has to go.

    I think you are onto something...get rid of the fish entirely...what an absolute sham.

    On that note, time to pick Stanton off of them for Chris Heisey or something equally ridiculous.

    In all seriousness, if there was a time there was an iota of possibility of prying Stanton away from them, this might be it.

    I'd think it would have to be something like Hamilton, Cingrani, and Stephenson though. Who would be willing to do that?
    Go BLUE!!!

    According to Ken Rosenthal of FOXSports.com, the Blue Jays are close to acquiring Josh Johnson and Mark Buehrle from the Marlins in exchange for Yunel Escobar, Adeiny Hechavarria, Henderson Alvarez and Justin Nicolino.

    Reyes may be included, but that hasn't been confirmed as of yet.

    Not me. I would do Corcino and Cingrani both though. No Hamilton, no Stephenson.

    Me without thinking twice. Stanton is the player the Reds need NOW. There's a 0% chance that all 3 of our prospects turn out to be as awesome as we all hope them to be. Do that deal now and dont think twice.
