MIAMI — Mark Buehrle has issued a parting shot at Miami Marlins’ management after his stay with the team lasted only one tumultuous season. The left-hander was part of the blockbuster trade that sent Buehrle, All-Star shortstop Jose Reyes, right-hander Josh Johnson and two other players to the Toronto Blue Jays as the Marlins cut $146.5 million in future payroll. In a statement issued Wednesday through his agent, Buehrle said he was lied to on multiple occasions, just like Marlins fans. Team president David Samson said the Marlins didn’t lie to Buehrle but instead were compelled to make drastic changes after a disastrous season that included a last-place finish in their new ballpark. Buehrle signed a $58 million, four-year deal with the Marlins during their unprecedented spending spree a year ago.

Toronto Blue Jays go back in time

Unlike the National Hockey League, who are doing next to nothing,  the Toronto Blue Jays have been quite busy over the past two weeks. First, the club pulled off one of the biggest trades in history with Miami and then they signed Melky Cabrera two days later.  To be honest, I am not thrilled with move at all.  Cabrera was suspended 50 games for having high levels of testosterone...
