WHOA!!!!!

And Kenny Ken Ken adds:

Shit son!

ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME:

HINT: You might be:

Might have to take back some words about Rogers:

And another… but what do we give up?

I don’t even know where to begin here, so I’ll just keep adding tweets as they come in. Shaking.

Can’t be just him of the big three, could it?

I don’t know if I believe Bowden, but I WANT to believe. This is insane…

So a catcher must be going– fingers crossed for JPA, but… whatever. Bonifacio coming too? Holy fuck…

Henderson Alvarez? SEEYA!

Marisnick, too. But that’s OK…

I don’t think we’ll ever forget, Ken…

Skip this one if you want: Heyman making it seem like it could technically break down still…

Complete and total fucking insanity. And this:

Um… is this what’s been holding up the manager search? Too much else to process to speculate right now. Ahh, but poor Marlins fans, whoever they are. You think we have a bullshitter as president of the club?

More thoughts coming– mine will be in a subsequent post when I stop shaking:

OK, so Marisnick OR Gose, but no matter. And a non-d’Arnaud catcher? HELLO!

Still things being said out there… holy mother…

Apparently it IS Marisnick and not Gose:

Jim Bowden talking about it as though no more names are set to filter in:

THIS:

And also this (Sorry Miami):

Indeed they did. Indeed they did…

Holy fuck, make it official, make it official! I can’t relax until I know they can’t take it away:

Players are now tweeting as though it’s a done deal, so that’s reassuring. Yet… Dun dun dunnnn….

Forgive me for worrying you, but it’s still not wholly finished…

Good news: There’s confidence in the front office, so maybe my concerns are overblown. Clearly they’d have done their due diligence and not figured out the trade without thinking of the possibility it may not go over somehow…

And feeling better still with these tweets:

Jeff Mathis goes to Miami (per Bob Elliott, though) so there may still be more names to come…

Even if it’s Syndergaard, d’Arnaud or Osuna, it’s still a big win…

Uh… and does AA also get to sleep with Loria’s wife????

More good vibes…

Seriously, you guys. Fucking amazing:

This is not the worst problem in the world to have:

And I think I’m going to leave off with this Brandon McCarthy tweet, for now. Some actual thoughts will be coming up in a separate post before the night is over, and once the deal becomes official. I’ll keep adding updates here if they seem necessary…

Ahh… OK, one more, then I gotta eat and get writing (and champagne cracking… though not until it’s officially official, I suspect)…

  1. RRRRNNNGHGHGNGNG

    EMOTIONS!

  2. Adam Lind should be enough….

  3. Good if true…the return of the ninja?

  4. Buerhle too. Big splash time.

  5. That would be incredible.

  6. woah

  7. Buerhle too!

  8. FUCK YES.

  9. Rosenthal saying Buehle is involved as well, what would we have to give up to get those two??

  10. Hech and YEscobar going the other way?!?!

  11. HOLY FUUUUUUCCKKK!!!!!! PLEASE YES!!!!!

  12. It’s about time the Jays had their balls drop.

  13. i was thinking today about Buehrle’s deal from last year and how the sanchez rumours will probably make Buehrle’s contract look not insane in comparison. (in fact, i copypasta’d his name earlier because i was going to post something about that! BuehrleBuehrleBuehrleBuehrle)

  14. wait…they’re getting rid of BOTH of their short stops? miami already has some guy named reyes there…..??????

  15. Holy Fuck, now Rosenthal says POSSIBLY Jose Reyes involved as well

  16. Lol no Stanton means there’s still a lf hole

    • Having gose in the lineup with the addition of reyes is slightly more palatable.

  17. Reyes coming here? (Not Isabella, the other one.)

  18. Totally just peed a bit. Come on boys. Get ‘er fuckin’ goin!

  19. suck it rogers haters……….
    go jays

  20. I feel all tingly inside!

  21. Fuck, just get anybody. Make it look like Rogers’ actually care..

    • No one is allowed to call them cheap anymore if this deal happens, that’s all I’m saying.

  22. holy fucking shit balls of fire

  23. OMG…. It’s all happening!!!!! PLAYOFFFSSSSS!!!

    Umm… Who’s playing middle infield?

    • Reyes and Bonifacio? Idk, but after this trade, having Izturis start at second base sounds really shitty.

  24. Fucking rights I have been hoping for josh Johnson!!! This is great fucking news

  25. YES! I’m getting drunk. Everybody let’s get drunk.

  26. did rogers actually use their money in the proper way, to let Miami go back to being bigger cheapskates than us? MEGATON

  27. AA I fucking love you!!!! Again!!!

  28. Toronto Dodgers.

  29. Tuesday is a drinking night! Holy shitballs!

  30. Yunel, Hech, Others, Toronto Star Passes (?!?)

  31. Wow.

    Shocking in a good way!

  32. AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH

    • you have to be happy now, right?

      • Of course. This is the kind of move I’ve been asking for since 2008.

        • +10.
          Agreed. Our philosophy has finally been vindicated.

          This is a victory for all jays fans. Rogers finally figured out that with new tv revenues coming, & even internally, Rogers gets extra ad revenue regardless of what it pays the Jays.

          We are finally a big market team

          • really oakville? This is year three of AA’s plan, the one that you have been bashing since he came into power. Once the team starts developing internally the money would be there if you read between the lines you would have realized that… Instead you just complained.

            Basically don’t say “our philosophy.”

          • @Stanley’s Cup.

            When I refer to “our philosophy” , I mean the fans tat believe that a team has to “spend to contend” with a good core.

            AA has acquired 3 all star calibre players. Buerhle is the innings eater, Josh Johnson who is easily equal to Morrow & Romero ( in a good year) .

            The Jays finally have a staring 4 rotation that can compete in the AL East. It’s not the Rays, but we won’t get blown out after morrow pitches.

            Reyes is an all star shortstop. Much better than Escobar.

            AA has made the biggest trade in franchise history.

            AA was hired by Loria to work in the Expos mailroom in 2000. This is a movie in the making.

            Loria will need a bulletproof vest in Miami. He has ripped off Miami like he did to Montreal.

          • The funny thing is that this deal is contrary to all of the Beeston bullshit of the last few years about needing to build a winner cheaply first before spending money. Spending like this also doesn’t exactly fall into the “plan” that AA has been talking about for three years.

            But hey, if this means that Rogers is finally going to spend the 120M+ that they have always been capable of and that the Jays are actually going to try to win/compete (which they haven’t done since 2006-2008), I’m willing to forgive the hypocrisy of the past.

          • What are you talking about?
            AA has locked down the following positions:
            RF/1B/3B/C/SP2/SP3/Bullpen

            Not only that but the prospect pipeline is bursting at the seems (see ten player trade at mid season+ this trade and the Jays still have a very good system)

            This was the offseason theat they were going to spend did you miss Beeston saying (we will make playoffs 3 times in 5 years…) that told me he liked what AA was doing and was going to give him flexibility.

            This was the strategy since day one of AA’s hiring hence why they hired him.

  33. lol @trippingOlney SOURCE: MARLINS AND BLUE JAYS SWAP TEAMS. CN TOWER EXPECTED TO BE TRADED FOR HOME RUN THINGY

    SOURCE CONFIRMS HOME RUN THINGY IS INVOLVED IN DEAL. WILL BE REENGINEERED TO SPEW MAPLE SYRUP AFTER BLUE JAY HOMERS.

  34. Well, isn’t that a helluva thing.

  35. Seriously, this potentially puts the Jays from a battle for 3rd to division favourite depending on who and what are coming back.

  36. if d’arnaud is not part of this deal i will go ape shit with excitement

  37. just might be enough to warm up my blueballz….brrrrr.
    oh…….and FUCK YA!
    I just hope Kevin Gray is not reporting this one.
    FUCK YA

  38. And a happy Diwali to all!

  39. Jose Reyes in rumor as well

  40. if reyes is in this deal john feral can start thinking about his team sucking the chrome off an exhaust pipe in 2013

  41. Oh please oh please oh please…

  42. The Greek Ninja from Montreal is striking again

  43. HOLY FUCK

  44. Hech and Escobar going to Little Havana…haha!

    Great deal! Ninja move by AA

  45. Ninja credentials reinstated.

  46. Oh my god. Heart Attack. Tu Ere Crazy…..

  47. It’s nearly sad how excited I am about this.

    I hope this goes through.

    I can’t handle another Darvish…

  48. !!!!!!

  49. WHAT TEH FUCK!?!?

  50. If this happens it will be the the 5th best day of my life:

    1. My wedding (in case the wife reads this)
    2. 1992 Series win
    3. 1993 Series win
    4. 1989 Flames Cup win
    5. This *fingers crossed*

  51. Say hello to your 2013 Toronto Marlins!

    • There’s got to be some karma/poetic justice for Canadian baseball that Toronto has balkanized the Marlins…much like Loria did to the Expos, before becoming the owner of the Marlins.

  52. wonder if Ozzie Guillen named manager after trade completed? you know the whole Buherle thing

    • interesting. They might be picking up his contract. that would make sense of why they have been waiting.

  53. I’m guessing Darnaud has to be part of the package?? Right?? Tell me I’m wrong

  54. nicolino involved according to morosi

    Jon Morosi ‏@jonmorosi
    Source: Justin Nicolino is going to the #Marlins.

    I AINT MAD.

  55. Holy flying shitballs, Batman.
    Hechy AND Escobar?? Um….don’t we need someone to play short?
    Unless Lawrie has another 4 Red Bulls before the game and covers third AND short.

  56. Nicolino gone, per Morosi.

  57. Blockbuster deal. Holy fuck. Who is getting drunk?

  58. Maybe we can get Yan Gomes back and he can play shortstop.

    WHO THE HELL IS GOING TO PLAY SHORT?

  59. HOLY SHIT!!!

  60. If Bonifacio is part of the trade, what are the odds that Lawrie is getting moved?

  61. I ACTUALLY JUST GOT A RAGING ERECTION GUYZ

  62. Deal is just for Escobar and Hech!! Holy fuck this is golden

  63. If this happens, I’ll skip work and pretend tomorrow St.Patty’s Day.

  64. If John Buck is headed this way, i assume JPA is headed that way.

  65. Jays’ beat reporters are apparently busy doing the dishes.

  66. would just like to add HOLY SWEET FUCKITY FUCK!

    I NEED TO KNOW EVERYTHING RIGHT NOW!!!!!!!

  67. Seriously, this totally makes up for no hockey.
    Man, if this is AA’s last stand…what a move!

  68. ‏@jonmorosi

    One source told me Johnson, Buehrle, Reyes, Buck and Bonifacio are all going to #BlueJays. I am working to confirm this. @MLBONFOX
    Expand

  69. Henderson Alvarez heading to the Marlins Apparently, Twitter was invented for moments such as this one…this is one hell of a blockbuster

  70. hmmm…

  71. If Nicolino is involved I can live with that as well. Is it weird I just did fifty push ups?? Fuckin jacked

  72. WTF OMG!!!

  73. I AM FREAKING OUT.

  74. Ken Rosenthal ‏@Ken_Rosenthal

    Confirmed: Reyes going to #BlueJays. Henderson Alvarez also going to #Marlins.

  75. Henderson Alvarez, Justin Nicolino, Escobar and Hech all going to the Marlins for Buerhle, Johnson and Reyes.

    No d’Arnaud, no Syndergaard, no Sanchez.

    Holy fuck yes.

  76. “Trading” them Mike Redmond > John Farrell trade….

  77. Really hoping D’Arnaud isn’t included, but this is absolutely massive

  78. Olney saying deal is done!!!!!

  79. Please be arencibia going and not darnaud!!

  80. marisnick leaving too

  81. Hey Fasshole. We took your advice and got a couple of pitchers…and a shortstop…

  82. This is a giant FUCK YOU to John Farrell.

  83. Preliminary thank you Stoeten for being all over this. You’re getting tweets posted a fast as I can read them.

  95. ohmygodohmygodohmygodohmygod

  96. my josh johnson wishes came true…please extend him as part of the announcement. i can’t hold my pee in

  97. What the… What. WHAT?

    *brain explodes*

    I like Reyes

    I like Johnson but am scared of his injuries and he’s only 1 year left right?

    Buehrle? Meh but I guess he’s an established veteran and all that other intangible BS that I don’t really believe in. He’ll get you the innings at least.

  98. I’m gettin’ a blue woody!!

  99. HOLY FUCKING SHIT!

  100. I think I pee’d a little. Yup…there’s a wet spot there. Nope, it’s not pee. My bad.

    If it’s Buehrle…that’s 7M
    Johnson is 13.5M
    Reyes is 10M
    and Bonifacio is 2.5

    Add ‘em up, carry the one, pour another shot, suck er back….that’s over 30M in added salary.
    Holy fucking shitballs….AA musta found the keys to Rogers’ money vault and is making out like a junkie with a stolen credit card. Someone trank him with a dart or something.

    • Buehrle makes like 20 million a season in 2014/15…but don’t think about that right now.

    • Bit of a payroll boost:
      Johnson: $13.75M in ’13
      Buehrle: $11M in ’13, $18M in ’14 and $19M in ’15
      Reyes: $10M in ’13, $16M in ’14, $22M in ’15-’17 and a $22 option/$4M buyout in 18
      Bonifacio: arb eligible. made $2.2M in ’12
      Buck: $6M in ’13
