“Just about any (Marlins) player making money is going to Toronto,” a source told ESPN.
Toronto is still without a manager after the Boston Red Sox hired John Farrell.
“It’s a good day to be bluejay!” a tweet from Toronto’s Jose Bautista read.
While Bautista was elated with the proposed trade, Marlins outfielder Giancarlo Stanton voiced his frustration via Twitter.
“Alright, I’m pissed off!!! Plain & Simple,” Stanton tweeted.
Johnson, who has spent his entire career with the Marlins told the Palm Beach Post that he’s “in shock, but really excited to start a new chapter in my life.”
Major League Baseball will have to examine the amount of money and contracts changing hands before signing off on the deal.
The Blue Jays are sending shortstop Yunel Escobar, right-hander Henderson Alvarez, catcher Jeff Mathis and prospects Jake Marisnick (OF), Adeiny Hechavarria (SS), Justin Nicolino (LHP) and Anthony DeSclafani (RHP) to the Marlins, sources told ESPN.
Fire Sale! Good thing we spent all this money, got a new stadium, and deceived all of our 500, 75-year-old fans! What a (fish) slap in the face to the fan base!
Miami is now an awful baseball team. The Phillies might have gotten 6 games better last night.
Jose Reyes going from New York, to Miami, to Toronto. Jose not happy.
