Which brings me to my next point: Blue Jays fans aren't allowed to whine about a salary cap anymore.
I agree Reyes is overrated at times, his WAR is a slight improvement over Escobar. I am glad to get a guy who can lead-off and steal on the Jays though, we have a young lineup and I like that kind of energy.

I mean there's essentially no way they could have got a better deal on the market.
