    Toronto and Miami blockbuster trade

    With almost every single player making money in Miami heading north, more to come.

    The Marlins are a joke of a franchise. This deal will annihilate whatever fanbase they have left.

    I apologize if I'm insulting anyone's intelligence here but the prospects Miami will be receiving are the #2, #5 & #8 in Toronto's organization according to Baseball America. Alvarez appears to be no more than a back of the rotation guy and Escobar is a boom or bust guy at SS.

    Maybe I'm wrong, but I feel like they could have done better by trading these guys individually.

    I would hate to be new Miami manager Mike Redmond but the Toronto job just got way more appealing.

    Pretty sure the Blue Jays just acquired the Marlins. Like, bought the entire franchise.

    I wonder where John Buck will end up next. Miami wanted to dump him because they added Rob Brantly from the Tigers in trade last year and Toronto already has J.P. Arencibia.

    Arencibia or another catcher may be heading to Miami as well now

    If they got Arencibia, I would feel better about the return for the Marlins

    This franchise is a joke. They got their stadium and now they are conducting a firesale. Loria should not be allowed to own ANYTHING

    I wouldn't say they are a joke. It's just what the Marlins do, salary dump, get mad prospects and build from within. It's risky but what a small market team like the Marlins has to do to compete. They have 2 chips in the past 15 years and you can't argue with that, but it was a shady move doing this after getting that new stadium which they only had to pay a ridiculously small fraction of their own money for.
