Last night on ESPN from what I saw John Kruk basically talked about what the Marlins gave up. Now maybe they did a segment on what the Blue Jays got, however I didn't see one. So I think there is some Toronto bias from others because a Canadian team made this deal.
To be fair most people are saying the Jays killed on this deal. The people talking bad about it are all American baseball media people and that's nothing new. It's been like that for 30 years.
