If he gets back to his old self? Even at 3B, it's perfectly fine. 3B has become a weak position around the league.

Yeah I wouldn't surprised if he's moved, he doesn't really fit in Miami, although who's their second baseman now?

In that same article they said Miami could try and trade Escobar which wouldn't surprise me. Probably in an effort to rebuild their rotation.
I can see the Marlins swapping some of what they brought in for other pieces. They got valuable assets back. It's not like we gave them scrubs.

they're promoting one of the peanut vendors. It's all Loria will pay for.

The Latest On The Marlins-Blue Jays Blockbuster
By Mike Axisa [November 15 at 1:26pm CST]
The baseball world is still reeling from the Blue Jays-Marlins blockbuster, which still has yet to be made official. A total of 12 players will change hands once things are finalized. Here's the latest on the trade...

Commissioner Bud Selig told Bob Nightengale of USA Today that the trade is currently being reviewed (Twitter link). Selig said he is "not happy," but so far doesn't he see a reason to disallow the deal according to Jon Heyman of CBSSports.com (on Twitter).
Selig has heard a lot of grumbling from other owners about the trade, writes Ken Davidoff of The New York Post. Clubs from the AL East, NL West, and NL Central are not happy with the on-field ramifications of the swap.
"A couple of years from now we might look back on this as a warning sign," said an official to ESPN's Buster Olney (Insider required). There is concern within the game that the latest collective bargaining agreement hurt small market clubs and that similar blockbuster sell-offs may become more frequent.
The Marlins plan to start Adeiny Hechavarria at shortstop with Yunel Escobar playing third base, Juan C. Rodriguez of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports. However, the Marlins haven't ruled out flipping Escobar to a third team.
Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports notes (on Twitter) that the Marlins will receive a combined 32 years of team control over the players in the trade. The Blue Jays, however, will receive just 12 years of control.


ok.....

This could also be about MLB forcing Loria to sell the team..just a thought. I admit I'm kind of nervous right now. Only in Toronto and Montreal could Bud Selig screw this sort of thing up.

I'm not worried. Imagine the backlash from all ends... they wouldn't reject the deal this quickly if they were doing so. There would be a TON more to go through, PR from the Jays and Marlins side etc.

This deal is going through and Selig will announce it. He will talk about the reasons its going through from a baseball standpoint and then how they plan to save baseball in Miami and still convince the city of Tampa Bay to build a new stadium.

TSN is the only one saying it and they aren't exactly a credible source. Lets wait and see what happens before freaking out.

If this get's veto'd if I'm Rogers or Beeston or anyone involved with the organization, I'm trying to find out if I could sue MLB. The backlash of this could be insane.

"Oh no! We can't have those damn canadians competing again!" Why should it matter if other teams don't like the deal

CORRECTION: No Selig presser live at 4pm. Misunderstanding from some who thought it was live, but actually earlier in the day. Sorry people
