The Toronto Blue Jays had the biggest pickup of the entire offseason when they got a king's ransom in a trade with the Miami Marlins.
Just one year ago, the Marlins touted a new era with a new ballpark, new uniforms and a lot of expensive players.
One year later, not only are all of those players gone, but so are the others who were there before.
But, the Blue Jays aren't complaining.
Toronto acquired Jose Reyes, Josh Johnson, Emilio Bonifacio, John Buck and Mark Buehrle for a plethora of their top young talent.
However, the Blue Jays want to compete now and gave up what they had to in order to get all of this talent.
This trade has made the Blue Jays the favorite in the AL East entering the 2013 season.
