I guess I am on HF. Prospects >>>>>>> proven talent. Even when some of the prospects do not even have the cieling of the players they were traded for. This must be a joke
He does have a point. Two of the three (main) pieces we are getting back (Johnson and Reyes) carry with them some injury concern. Johnson is only on a one year deal and Buehrle and Reyes are going to be making more and more each year.
We did give up some good young talent in the deal as well.
Still, I'm definitely glad the Jays made the move. Going on 20 years without post season ball, I'm glad AA used the deep farm to give us a chance in the immediate future. Especially when you consider Joey Bats isn't getting any younger. This is the kind of trade Toronto fans needed, and by golly I sure hope it works out.
