He probably meant BJ who is a FA.

That too. Reyes provides so much for us.

Also, I think all this extra cash allows the Marlins to target A-Rod.

He's mentioned Justin a whole bunch, so I'm just going off that.

It's okay. We'll take BJ, but only if he asks nicely.

Cant see keeping both of them with D'Arnaud pretty much ready. Altho like you said one could DH.

Could you imagine?

"So Alex, have you guys talked to any other Free Agents yet?"

"Well none have asked to join our team, so no"

I really hope we sign Johnson to an extension, I am most pumped about Johnson if he can be healthy.

What a great deal for the Blue Jays. Hopefully they can now fight for the AL East.

meh. He provides value on the basepaths, and has power, but I think there's much more suitable options (even internally) for the Jays.

If someone could compare this to what it would like if it was a hockey trade that would be great.

Why wouldn't they?

Arencibia and Buck until TDA is ready to go. Mathis had 2 years left, Buck only has one.

I don't understand why people always worry about this, maybe because its not a luxury we usually have in Toronto... but its OK to have TOO MANY good players.

I wouldn't worry about Buck, I suspect he might be DFA and released outright to free up the roster room.

I dunno, maybe if they threw Giordano and Tanguay in with Phaneuf in the Leafs-Flames deal?

TDA is pretty much ready. I'd suspect a month or two in AAA to shake off the rust but after that he's totally ready to take over this ball club.

The Leafs getting a legit number one goaltender, a number one center and first line Winger is pretty close the impression I get.

IE players that turn Leafs into a playoff team almost overnight ( On PAPER at any rate)

The Joe-Thornton-to-San-Jose deal, if the Bruins also threw in pre-injury Patrice Bergeron and Zdeno Chara (were he signed on the B's at that point).

If I'm not mistaken he's played a little 1B in the minors since being with our org.

Wouldn't be completely surprised if they get him some starts there. "Napoli" him for a year.

He's obviously better defensively than JP, but its a possibility
