From the standpoint of talent, they got better.

Now four years $86M with no substantial salary relief from Toronto, yikes, you're paying Mauer/Howard money for a guy that might be not even wind up as your best outfielder.

We'll see how it affects their spending, could be Gary Matthews Jr part deux as far as a bad gamble that limits flexibility.

I know when we traded him we are paying his full $$$ so when does he come off the books?
