Have you even read the thread? Players who are needed for physicals are not all immediately available, because it's the off-season. The BOS/LA trade took place during the season when all players were immediately available. This is not a problem.

LOL Jim Bowden of ESPN mentioned that a good fit might be the Marlins and RedSox... Nolaso and Escobar to the BoSox.

Wouldn't that be fantastic

Adios John, btw here's the guy you couldn't control in the clubhouse last year.

If im not mistaken, he cant approve or decline a deal before everyone passes their physicals. So I dont see the big deal.

Why the hold up on Jays physicals? Jose Reyes got the news when he was in Dubai ... Jeff Mathis on a hunting trip.

But by all means, people, :panic:
Yeh make other trades unless they make the Jays too good. Then the league moves in. Can't be upsetting the American apple cart with a Canadian team being good.

Bud Selig contact info???? OR MLB ??? I know its almost impossible to get by their customerservice email which is ****.

They make it so hard for people to voice their concerns.

Oh well , i guess I shouldn't get flustered. Its really out of my hands or yours.

Haha I can guarantee that your e-mail would have absolutely no bearing on the decision. Theres a reason they have customerservice and various other techniques so rabid fans like YOU don't do things like that

But yeah, don't worry about it... this deal isn't getting vetoed. It would look absolutely terrible, and both Rogers and Loria would file legal complaints etc. and it there would be a huge mess to clean up.

Psst! Your inferiority complex is showing...

Don't worry, we all have it to some degree, but seriously, this isn't an issue.

Bob Nightengale ‏@BNightengale

Commissioner Bud Selig knows he can't legally overturn the #Marlins-#Bluejays trade,but wants Jeffrey Loria to sweat with his #MLB review.

So umm... stop worrying so much.

Selig pretty much states in his conference that there's been deals before this that he's disliked, but there was nothing he could have done to veto them. The only thing he can possibly do is send repercussions to Loria for his abysmal ownership of the club.

He also said in speaking to a few sources not connected to either team that the Marlins actually got a good return so I bet he is just trying to make sure everything is handle appropriately. It probably gets approved.

yeah, some spanish espn guy said reyes would be back in the USA thursday (tweeted two days ago, actually), so assuming he was planning to return to miami, he should be on some flight from london right about now - meaning no physical until tomorrow morning at the earliest.

anyways, i'm not too worried, doubt selig is going to do anything. Going forward, maybe, but not with respect to this trade.


I'm more looking forward to AA's next move now. Will Buehrle actually stay? Johnson seems to be optimistic, and the question with him is more about whether he'll re-sign or not, but buehrle's whole pit-bull thing and his reputation as being picky worries a bit.

Beyond that, the roster isnt done. The Jays are in a prime position with a protected pick to go shopping, but is the money there or do we have to shed lind/buck first?
