So giving tons of money to FA is not smart, but getting 165M in trade is ok?

Holy mother of God.
Massive. Surprised a bit by the prospects given the contracts coming back (it's near $150million I think in total), but each one has his warts (perceived flaws, projection hiccups)....
And remember AA saying in September that TDA might get looks at DH and 1B....well, this sounds like it was a big part of this plan.

I think JPA gets flipped (here's hoping my scenario of JPA for Ike Davis turns out haha), but Buck stays for at least April. TDA is probably ready, but it's still nice to let him prove he is our #1 catcher rather than handing it to him.

Also, SN is reporting the deal w/o Marisnick, and only Olney's included him from what I've seen...maybe he's not in there (I can hope right?)

Yea. He's a super-sub. Can play almost every infield position (not sure if he's played 1st before), and has blazing speed.

So the Jays have picked up much of the starting staff that won the Marlins all those games last year?

****. Yes.

Yeah, that's 2 holes, but seriously, LF and DH are about the two easiest holes to fill on the roster.
Not only that, but LF and DH you can go somewhat cheap because the rest of your roster looks damn good.

Also might explain why AA didn't want to spend a whole lot of money on relief pitching.

Seriously that rotation looks fantastic. Deep and pretty talented.

Also, Bonificio can play all 3 OF positions I believe. So he might be at LF.

From a team that had no switch hitters and limited OBP guys to acquiring/signing...

Reyes
Bonifacio
Izturis

Strong. Very strong.

Theres obviously still a follow up move with one of JPA or d'Arnaud being traded.

This is fricking nuts.

AA got everything he needed without giving up D'arnaud, Syndergaard and Sanchez... Our top 3 prospects. That is crazy. I will totally show up at the ballpark more than once this year

I hope they take Marisnick and JPA going the other way makes sense.

Jays can't bid for big time free agents anymore. They could never bid for a guy like Reyes in free agency, this is the only way to get a player like that.

A source just informed me that Jake Marisnick will be a part of this reported deal. #BlueJays #Marlins

I'm hoping and mildly betting they take Marisnick because he's more "toolsy" than Gose and their new manager will be more familiar with him.

And they can have one of the catchers. Even JP. Wilson or Mathis would be of no consequence.

EDIT: and now that Gregor Chisholm tweet above seems to confirm it is Marisnick. Nice.

The OF prospect and C could be interesting twists here.
