I'd also suggest that the poll options don't represent everyone. I personally think facepalms are stupid and overused to the point that they carry no value. I also don't laugh at people for their proposals. If they are ridiculous, I'll ask someone to explain the logic behind it (sometimes in a condescending way because I'm appalled by the suggestion), but I don't fit in on the extremes listed in the poll options. For example, if someone suggested this trade in the forum without any explanations I'd probably ask: "why on earth do you think the Marlins would entertain this deal?"
I probably would have done a little of all of the above. I probably would have laughed, followed by a brief face palm. I probably would have laughed a little bit more and said that I couldn't see the Jays taking on that much salary followed by telling the person "but it's a pretty fair trade, so I'd probably want them to do it. We'd win the trade in the short term but the Marlins might win it in the long term."
Big blockbuster trade involving over 40 million extra a year in payroll???? Rogers are a bunch of cheap ***** who run the team like a business, theyll NEVER make this trade because it would put the TEAM in the red.
That being said, it would be a very nice trade for the Blue Jays...but Rogers doesnt like acting like the second richest owner in baseball.
I'm just surprised by the trade. I didn't think with that much money, AA would make that deal. But either way, I'm really excited for the season.
#1 because Rogers was cheap
