Lisa Pernice asks:
Now that Toronto got Buck, you think that we should try to get either d’Arnaud or Arencibia? If they didn’t have a logjam before, it looks like they have one now. What would the cost be?
Now that the Blue Jays acquired John Buck from the Marlins, do you think that the Mets have a good shot at attaining J.P. Arencibia? Though Travis d’Arnaud is a better option, it would be pretty unrealistic to acquire him. Arencibia is not quite as good defensively, but his offense more than makes up for it, plus he adds a right handed hitter to a lefty heavy lineup. He would be cheaper to acquire and even more so now that they’ve attained a couple of major league pitchers. I think someone like Mejia or Valdespin and some other decent pitching or position prospect could get this deal done.
Well, Lisa, I’ll answer part of your question with part of Ramon’s. Travis d’Arnaud is pretty unrealistic. I don’t think he’s untouchable, but catching is so thin...
BEST OF MAXIM
In somewhat of a surprise move, the Toronto Blue Jays have reportedly inked outfielder Melky Cabrera to a two-year, $16M deal. Now finished with his 50-game suspension for PED use, questions remain about his performance going forward, but it's skill related stats -- not questions about strenght/endurance -- that keep me optimistic.

The Toronto Blue Jays are stacking up for the upcoming season. Today it was reported that the Jays signed free-agent OF Melky Cabrera, who was suspended on August 15 for violating MLB's performance-enhancing drug rules, to a two-year deal worth $16 million.

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...
Okay Mets fans; what is your lasting memory of former shortstop Jose Reyes? For me, a lifelong Mets fan who has been with the team through good and bad (mostly bad), mine is his final game in Queens.
With a batting title in his grasp, Reyes laid down arguably the best bunt of his career to date and beat it out for a single. The hit raised his batting average to .337 and gave...
The Toronto Blue Jays added a pair of frontline starting
pitchers, Josh Johnson and Mark Buehrle, in their blockbuster trade with the
Miami Marlins this week, but the team still want one more starter, reports Ken
Rosenthal of FOX Sports.
On #BlueJays: Anything is possible, but team did not get J. Johnson to flip him. Reality is, Jays still need - and want - one more starter...
Did you see the trade the Miami Marlins just pulled off with the Toronto Blue Jays? Good lord, they just got rid of their best (and most expensive) players, giving up guys like Jose Reyes, Mark Buehrle, and Josh Johnson, all for some unproven minor league prospects and underachieving major league players.
With the lopsidedness of that trade, as well as just the pure depth of guys...
Days after trading star shortstop Jose Reyes and standout pitchers Josh Johnson and Mark Buehrle to the Toronto Blue Jays for a slew of prospects, the city of Miami remains wrongly outraged at Marlins owner Jeffrey Loria for conducting yet … Continue reading →
According to ESPN Deportes, the Toronto Blue Jays have signed steroid user Melky Cabrera to a 2-year, $16 million contract. Cabrera, who was suspended 50 games last season for testing positive for performance enhancing drugs, batted .346 before his season came to an end. The concern now is now that he is moving north of [...]
There is nothing wrong with Belgians. Belgians are the best.
Where are the locked out NHLers playing? HINT: Not the NHL.
Mark Buehrle is on the way to Toronto. Can’t bring his dogs, though.
The word “stunning” is used quite frequently in international soccer.
Nothing today. Makes you miss baseball, doesn’t it?
