This just in: Bud Selig has approved the megadeal between the Toronto Blue Jays and Miami Marlins.
The deal which sent Jose Reyes, Josh Johnson, Mark Buehrle, Emilio Bonifacio and John Buck to Toronto in exchange for Yunel Escobar, Adeiny Hechavarria, Jeff Mathis, Henderson Alvarez, Jake Marisinick and Anthony DeSclafani was made last week.
Selig said, “I’ve received assurances from Marlins ownership, they’re fully committed to build long-term winning team fans can be proud of.”
That noise you just heard was a collective roar of laughter from everyone else in baseball. Yeah, sure Marlins, whatever you say.
Your move, Yanks.
