Alex Finally Pulls the Trigger

Tuesday November 13, 11:31 p.m.

Well, all of Toronto had been impatiently waiting for it for some time after The Blue Jays' annus horribilis, but Alex Anthopolous has made that blockbuster trade that many had been hoping for. I'm sure every social networking platform that has anything to do with baseball or Toronto has been spitting out megabytes for the past few hours. It is a big one in quantity at the very least. I think it's 6 going out to Miami and 6 coming over here. The sports channels and their analysts are just masticating this like a good 20-oz. steak. Apparently, we're getting two pretty darn good starters from the get-go, and Yunel Escobar is one of the fellows heading over to the Marlins.

All I can say is that I hope this will pay off for the Jays next year. Things couldn't have gotten any worse this year.
