  1. Woo Yay!

    What? Comment too short? Brevity is all I need.

    • Comment from Selig: ‘ …this represents the exercise of plausible baseball judgment on the part of both Clubs, does not violate any express rule of Major League Baseball and does not otherwise warrant the exercise of any of my powers to prevent its completion,” Selig said in a statement.’


  3. woooohooooooooo!!!!!!

  4. Good, now let’s get this winter thing over with.

  5. I hope we got some more news of a manager and a starting pitcher of the highest caliber coming as well!!!


  6. It’s funny how I’m not surprised but I am relieved. Maybe we’re all a little paranoid. Still, I’ll feel better when I hear from the Marlins involved. Let’s hope everyone maintains a professional stance. Hopefully these guys are simply glad to be on what is now a very competitive team.

  7. I think you’re forgetting Nicolino in your players headed the other way. I only count 11 there.
