    off topic here , but can the province of Ontario please put an end to the stupid pitbull ban. Its such a stupid law and i'm not just saying this because Mark Buehrle is coming to Toronto. It made me think about the law again. My girlfriend has a pitbull and they are such great dogs. Lets stop the stupidity.

    Pit bulls seem to attract idiot owners. It's either that, or they're just too dangerous. Those really are the only two options for why so many people seemed to have gotten attacked by Pit Bulls.

    Even the Netherlands came to their senses and lifted the ban after 15 years.

    I think it's owners who are not responsible, powerful dog no question, but if you train it right great dog.

Overall, maybe the trade buzz factor ranking would be something like this(?):

    1. Miami blockbuster -
    2. Rasmus - fans got rabid over this one
    3. Halliday - Ace to Philly was big news
    4. Wells - shock at unloading of huge contract
    5. Lawrie/Marcum - some buzz for Mil getting good starter

    8. Morrow/League - seemed to have been quiet
    9. Hill/KJ - low profile swap

    I wasn't around for those trades this summer so don't know where they fit in. Bullpen type trades. I miss any? thoughts?
    Personally, the Halladay deal should be #2. The Rasmus deal was fantastic, and I was electric about it, but when you trade a top 3 pitcher in the league in his prime after almost a decade of service for your team, the heart and soul of the Toronto Blue Jays.. There's a trade that can make or break your farm because you've dealt the biggest and most valuable piece on your team. You sure as **** better get a good return, and we did. We got Travis D'Arnaud, Anthony Gose (Brett Wallace, flipped later), and Kyle Drabek for him which isn't horrible. I really still hope Drabek can be good, I love him.

    I wouldn't disagree. Both those 2 created a ton of buzz around the league.

    Selig better sit tight n not overthink too much on this one, because it's probably the first round of trades from AA who is really just warming up

    Upton? Choo? Morneau? Beckham? Ackley? Kinsler? Harrison? Ogando? Even Felix or Price?

    another wave of moves is coming soon

    Stay tuned Selig
