I think he's most worried about the Miami market. If they sign jobbers and/or rush prospects, the viability to that market comes into question.
I still don't think it will be rejected, but it's something to consider I think.
This trade is still below the level of the Dodgers-BoSox swap that occured mid season.
There was a FAR greater amount of money being exchanged. The only difference is that the BoSox had full intentions to use that money somewhere else and they are a big market that will always survive. Miami and Loria may not have intentions to use the money they shipped out on other players...and baseball is now in jeopardy there.
