Someone at MLB has to get rid of Loira. This is fantastic news for Toronto but it is bad for Miami and also bad for baseball in Florida.

Here's the ESPN article about the trade. Loria is a terrible owner.

My son just called me about this deal. He got his Escobar's mixed up and thought these guys were going to Kansas City.

I'm thrilled he was wrong.

Regarding Buehrle, even if he can demand a trade I don't think Toronto can find any takers without eating a big part of that contract. I love Burls, but not at $19M per year for the last two years of his deal.

I love seeing the Blue Jays make this deal. Maybe we won't see the Yankees or Red Sox in the post season next year.

And as long as the Marlins are having another fire sale and seem to like Blue Jays prospects, how about Nestor Molina for Giancarlo Stanton?

And once they're done with the trades, can Bud Selig force Jeff Loria by invoking the "best interests of baseball" clause in his powers? He's a disgrace to the game and wonders why the Marlins can't draw. He's lower than whale ****.

I agree with you that Selig should veto the trade. As a matter of fact, no trades similar to this should be allowed ever again because it is bad for baseball. If you allow this trade, the Sawx-Dodgers trade sets a new, dangerous precedent for MLB.

Asked official with one of clubs if he has any concern that commissioner might kill the deal. His response: "None at all."

I don't know how Selig allows this trade to go down. Of course, I thought the Boston-Dodgers trade should have been vetoed last yr too.

The major takeaway from this deal: John Buck returns to Toronto to terrorize the White Sox.

It's apparent that you don't get in the MLB owners circle unless you're tight with Bud and his cronies so once you're in, you probably don't have much to worry about. That's why Mark Cuban would've never lasted.

Damn. If the Jays avoid the injury bug they might be a contender next year, should be I should say.

Wow, the Marlins big-spending revolution lasted a whole season.

Huge salary dump, and now Miami is back to a small salary team, with a brand new stadium, compliments of the city.

**** you, Loria.

I am hoping Bud prevents this deal for the good of the game, but I doubt it.
