I'm actually really liking this deal for :MIA-MLB:.  They are getting some really good young guys.

Re: Buehrle & JJ & JOSE REYES - A BLUE JAY???

Dont get me wrong, from a fan's perspective its a phenomenel deal.  They immediately become AL East contenders.  There are definite red flags though: a. ton of money, b. JJ only locked for 1 year and is injury proned, c. gave up some nice young pieces, etc. 

Jury is still out on if its a good deal long term.   I agree with Jesse though that the fans deserve it and its great to see them push their chips and go ALL IN.  AL East is going to be fun.

I do get what you mean, it is a big risk for the Jays, I just like the players they got in return, last off season I really wanted to Sox to sign Buehrle, since he doesn't get hurt, works fast, lots of ground ball out..did I mention he doesn't get hurt?? JJ is risky guy, but I think his stuff is good enough to take that risk..Marsanick and Nicolino will be MLB players pretty soon, and I think pretty good, but that is all the Jays lost here theyalso added by subtracting..as Escobar is a cancer..Alvarez is very inconsistent, Mathis is a avg def catcher with no bat,  Hechavarria's bat hasn't showed up like the Jays had hoped, and DeSclafani is forgettable..I wonder what the Sox would have had to give to do the same deal?

I heard on Boston radio earlier that the Sox were discussing JJ/Reyes with Miami (not sure if other guys were in it too) and the starting price Miami asked for was Middlebrooks, Doubront, Boegearts + MORE.  Give me a break.

This trade is great for the Marlins as well as the Jays.

You have to think of the whole picture. The Marlins team lost 40 million dollars in 2012. There is noway they were gona make 40million in 2013.

There is no team in the world at any sport that would be ok with losing 40million in one season.

No matter who takes the field the fans will NOT come. Nicolino and Marisnec are nice cheap additions.

Escobar is good trade bait if he starts to hit. and Hech isnt a bad spec either.

Im not saying the trade is totally fair, but for a team with no fan support and lots of payroll, you have to dump. They get good pieces tho in return.

Everyone is dogging the Marlins side, and what I stated above earlier about them losing 40m last season, came from Peter Gammons so that is an accurate statement.

I dog the Marlins ownership for the lies told to their fans, and then using tax payer money to pay for this stadium..Loria should be headed to jail in the next couple of years.

Look at it from the owner side. He brought in big time stars got no fan support and they did not win. Should he lose another 40,000,000. I don't think so. I would cell the players making big money too.

The fans in Miami have never supported the Marlins, or Dolphins..unless they are winning late in the season..can't blame the fans for Loria's inability to build a winner.

  • Jonathan: Pitt had to give a future 2nd to make sure they took him. Vegas nets picks #13 and 15 this year plus a few future 2nds.
    June 21, 2017, 11:30:13 PM
  • Jonathan: Specs in Theodore, Tuch and gusev.
    June 21, 2017, 11:31:28 PM
  • indiansnation: just watching all of it know
    June 21, 2017, 11:32:40 PM
  • Gr8O: i could have even seen the goalie winning but guess mcdavid won because he is the only one over 100 points and lead in assists with 70
    June 21, 2017, 11:32:41 PM
  • indiansnation: just got home
    June 21, 2017, 11:32:54 PM
  • indiansnation: mcdavid can kiss my @@@
    June 21, 2017, 11:34:43 PM
  • Jonathan: Only Chicago has less cap space than Vegas now. They hooked Pitt up IMO. Saved that cap. Overall a decent team, but very uninspiring offense, I am sure that is the focus with 3 of top 15 picks + tuch
    June 21, 2017, 11:35:26 PM
  • indiansnation: slap in face to my boy crosby
    June 21, 2017, 11:36:09 PM
  • indiansnation: vegas is probably not done tradeing yet
    June 21, 2017, 11:37:14 PM
  • Jonathan: McDavid is only 3rd player to ever win Art Ross with part of the season as a teenager.  4th youngest to win MVP. He has had a legendary start to career and only 20.
    June 21, 2017, 11:44:37 PM
  • Jonathan: Crosby took home the Conn Smythe.... that is McDavid's next goal lol
    June 21, 2017, 11:48:28 PM
  • Jonathan: Crosby will get a shot at becoming first to win that award 3 years in a row and tie Roy for most all time. Former Pen Mario also won it back to back
    June 21, 2017, 11:51:41 PM
  • indiansnation: flluery is all excited about being drafted im happy for him. they already said heis there starting goalie
    June 22, 2017, 12:03:48 AM
  • Jonathan: Solid with G's and D. Pitt will be fine with Murray.
    June 22, 2017, 12:06:58 AM
  • snugerud: I am a pens fan and will say McDavid barring injury will surpass crosby
    June 22, 2017, 11:42:08 AM
  • snugerud: he is bigger, faster and i think with time will have the same play making ability
    June 22, 2017, 11:42:43 AM
  • GypsieDeathBringer: What does surpass mean
    June 22, 2017, 12:01:36 PM
  • GypsieDeathBringer: He probably won't win more stanley cups.  Probably won't score more points because the league is calling less and less penalties.  Won't win as many gold medals because the NHL doesn't participate.
    June 22, 2017, 12:02:15 PM
  • GypsieDeathBringer: His relative corsi will be higher though.  He'll have that going for him.
    June 22, 2017, 12:04:57 PM
  • snugerud: i mean that in a completely non scientific sense.  With the changes the NHL has gone through its difficult to compare any player from one decade to the next
    June 22, 2017, 03:54:18 PM
  • snugerud: so ya , i mean that in the way that crosby could have , but can never surpass gretzky.  I wonder if we will ever see a 200 point season again
    June 22, 2017, 03:56:40 PM
  • GypsieDeathBringer: I'm sure we will when the NHL gets sued beyond belief for not doing enough for concussions and they have to go to 4 on 4, or start calling penalties again.

    June 23, 2017, 02:50:22 PM
  • dazfoster: Panarin and Hjalmarrson for lesser players and hardly saved any cap space.

  • Drew: Just trying to think of a fair way to send you my proxy
    June 23, 2017, 04:06:25 PM
  • Drew: I'm just going to send it and trust you haha
    June 23, 2017, 04:11:28 PM
  • Jonathan: I really have no idea who I am picking that far ahead. You can send it to someone not in the league and let me know who to PM when your up.

  • Jonathan: btw your OTC, I already picked.
    June 23, 2017, 04:12:58 PM

    June 23, 2017, 04:13:36 PM

    June 23, 2017, 04:14:05 PM

    June 23, 2017, 04:14:38 PM
