The Jays gave up none of their "top" prospects, a shortstop who was essentially run out of town in September, and Henderson Alvarez.

I'd trade Alvarez for Buehrle straight up easily.

I'd trade Escobar for a year of Johnson pretty easily given his reputation.

So we gave up a few prospects for Jose Reyes. This is where I'm slightly confused because I'm not entirely sure of his value, because I'm not sure of Rogers' spending limits.

But until we hear Anthopoulos say he's out of money or Reyes entirely busts, there is no possible way the Jays lose this trade.
