    OT: Buehrle about to be traded to Blue Jays

    According to Ken Rosenthal of FOXSports.com, the Blue Jays are close to acquiring Josh Johnson and Mark Buehrle from the Marlins.
    General manager Alex Anthopolous was dead set on acquiring some pitching help this offseason, and he's added two big pieces to the rotation in one fell swoop. It's not clear at this point what the Blue Jays are giving up or if any money is changing hands. Johnson will make $13.75 million in 2013 before hitting free agency, while Buehrle is set to earn $48 million over the next three seasons.

    Chicago to Miami to Toronto...crazy.

    It's unconfirmed right now, but Rosenthal was also saying Jose Reyes could be sent to Toronto too.

    Deal done... what are everybody's thoughts on this.. For me personally living in Toronto.. really excited to see the home team heading somewhere. Hopefully our new GM can pull a few moves himself to get us back in contending position.

    Blue Jays will win the East. I've been on the their dick this winter, saying they were a darkhorse as is. Also have been saying they will make a big move to make them better.

    Welp...

    what would it take to get Stanton ? Axelrod & Reed ?
    Then trade Rios for a real closer or pitching spec

    Not even enough to get them to pick up the phone.

    Stanton will not be traded. Johnson, Reyes, etc were dealt for financial reasons. Stanton is making less than a million bucks for a few years yet. He is what the Marlins will hold onto like grim death.

    Yea the Marlins want to hold onto him but he is pissed about this trade. When he blew up on twitter. So if I was the Marlins I would trade him but for a lot considering he is a rising star who still cheap.

    Exactly why they won't trade him. He makes 480k. Anything they get in return would likely cost them more.

    I know thats why they shouldnt trade him. But he is pissed and we all know he wont resign with them when he becomes a FA. So his value is sky high right now, they should trade because they will get a lot in return.
