    Also Toronto in the summer > many other places I have been.

    I'm gonna open myself up to the anual offseason bashing that routinely follows one of my rather colorful posts but I'm going to say this anyways.

    I understand Hal wants a salary dump by 2014. However, we couldve headed some of these issues off by dumping the piece of **** postseason ***** formerly known as Robinson Cano and gone a long way towards a deal w Miami. Seeing as they are apparently desperate to dump salary I wouldve at least inquired seriously about Bonifacio and JJ. Granted, both are injury prone to the nines but their upside is absolutely tremendous and theyre going to come cheaper than Cano next year.

    I dont think its insane to dump Andy's, Swisher's, and Cano's payroll to make this move even though Swisher is scheduled to expire anyway financially its not out of the realm of Hal's reality. To me the sticking point is Reyes and I would hope that Cashman couldve either 1) gotten him excluded from the deal or B) worked out a 3rd party trade for younger and cheaper talent on a team that may not have the resources to maneuver a complete epic deal w Miami.

    I fully comprehend that offense and not pitching was our bane this year but you can never have enough arms and Bonifacio is a tremendous speedy presence on the bags.

    Maybe Im just depressed that we're going into Bronx Bombers Lite Mode under Hal's stewardship but I gotta hope we get something done this year especially now that Hunter is off the market.

    Its a good gamble for the Jays I say but it is still a bit risky. Reyes is a borderline superstar when right but he has major durability issues and will he stay healthy playing half of his games on turf? Josh Johnson is a FA (I believe) after this upcoming year and will he be one and done in Toronto? Buehrle is overpaid for what he is now and that is a back end starter in the AL East. Still, I think he would stabilize their rotation and provide innings which is valuable in itself. Bonifacio is a nice player (nothing more) and Buck sucks and is overpaid.

    You really think the team is better with Johnson and Bonifacio over Pettitte, Swisher and Cano? I think thats crazy.

    There was no way Bud would have allowed The Marlins to dump salary on the Yanks....he has been trying to break them up since 2001...

    I'm surprised Bud hasn't vetoed this trade.

    No reason...he wants to knock the Yanks out....He started sharing the wealth in 2002 and now is going to penalize teams for going over $189 million.....this was all directed at the Yankees.

    Well he's adding insult to injury by not doing so. Forget the team, that city and the tax payers were just raped.

    He should have had the mindset Pujols had. Pretty stupid to sign with the Marlins without a no trade clause. Smart move by Alby.

    In my very humble opinion Pettittes on his way out anyway some might as well exclude him from this conversation.

    For that matter, Swishers all but gone as well as his asking price is sure to be WELL beyond what Hal wants to pony up going forward.

    That leaves the petulant little girl named Robinson Cano and after his rusty tampon performance this October, I am absolutely more than willing to buy his plane ticket personally out of this city. It's not just that he sucked in the clutch, rather it's that he apparently could give a shiite either way.

    Dumping Cano while he still has an affordable market value and adding those two players to me would've been a far far better thinking out of the box maneuver than signing Michael Pineda for our number one offensive prospect in a decade IMHO.

    WOW.

    REALLY?

    BAD DAY AT WORK??????


    It's just a little self-flagellating humor in good fun.

    Honestly.........I figured you'd be the last guy around here to develop a grump streak.
