So, about that job opening in Toronto ...
One managerial vacancy remains in the major leagues, and it just so happens to be in the dugout of the franchise that pulled off one of the biggest blockbusters in baseball history. Jose Reyes, Mark Buehrle, Josh Johnson, Emilio Bonifacio and John Buck are about to join the Blue Jays, and Canadian baseball fans can speak credibly about October aspirations once again.
Reyes and Buehrle led the procession of free agents to Miami last winter, as owner Jeffrey Loria (fleetingly) fulfilled his dream of putting a star-studded team in Little Havana. One last-place finish -- and one managerial firing -- later, they have traded South Beach for Southern Ontario.

Over his 37 month reign as general manager of the Toronto Blue Jays, Alex Anthopolous has been known as one of the best traders of his ilk, finding ways to get talent in ways that can position him to get better as the years go on. His most recent trade looks to be his masterpiece. That trade has brought five legitimate Major Leaguers north of the border from the Miami Marlins...
While most discussion throughout the last couple days has focused on the Miami Marlins selling off nearly all of their assets and the re-loaded Blue Jays north of the border, there’s also a discussion to be had about what the reported massive trade means for Toronto’s competition, the American League East division. In case you missed it, the trade that went down looks as follows...
Thanks to the Marlins failed one year experiment, the Toronto Blue Jays are about to become a force to be reckoned with.
Fox Sports has the info:
The Blue Jays are set to acquire starters Josh Johnson and Mark Buehrle, shortstop Jose Reyes, infielder/outfielder Emilio Bonifacio and catcher John Buck from the Marlins, sources told FOXSports.com.
The Marlins will receive...
