The names on the baseball cards certainly look more impressive for Toronto, but I dunno. Sometimes, a deal is not what it seems.
The morning after we traded Jesus Montero for Michael Pineda, the media was calling Cashman a genius.
Right now, the trade is obscured by everybody's primal need to vilify the Miami ownership. That's the story line of the day: Horrible owners. They built that Monstrosity Field. They hired obnoxious Ozzie. They made Hanley Ramirez a diva. They overpaid for Jose Reyes. They traded Hanley Ramirez. They fired obnoxious Ozzie. Now they've fired Jose Reyes. Insufferable! Disgrace! There oughta be a law.
Listen: I hate owners as much as anybody. But when I look at that deal, Toronto has given up some fine young talent. I figured the Blue Jays would be next year's Orioles. All they needed was another year toward the median age peak. We'll see. But I'd count the votes before declaring a winner.
