I have one word to describe the trade that the Toronto Blue Jays and the Miami Marlins have reportedly pulled off:
As reported by Ken Rosenthal and Jon Paul Morosi of FoxSports.com, the Blue Jays and Marlins have agreed to a trade that rivals the late-August deal between the Boston Red Sox and Los Angeles Dodgers in terms of "epicness." In it, the Blue Jays are basically going to get all the players the Marlins don't want to pay anymore.
Going to Toronto will be starting pitchers Mark Buehrle and Josh Johnson, shortstop Jose Reyes, infielder/outfielder Emilio Bonifacio and catcher John Buck.
Going to Miami will be shortstops Yunel Escobar and Adeiny Hechavarria, starting pitcher Henderson Alvarez, catcher Jeff Mathis and minor leaguers Justin Nicolino, Jacob Marisnick and Anthony DeSclafani.
So, I say again, wow. Or whoa. Whatever. Some sort of exclamation beginning with the letter "W" is in order.
Also in order: a discussion of the winners and losers of this trade. Let's take a look.
