The planned “Off-Topic Tuesday” has been cancelled due to a shocking mega-trade: the Marlins have done it again. In their long history of firesales, they may have outdone themselves, trading almost every notable player they have not named Giancarlo Stanton, Ricky Nolasco or Logan Morrison for a bunch of prospects. Perhaps in a few years, should those prospects rise to become a good core, we will think this shrewd. However, right now, there are a few things to be noted:
1. Baseball in Miami has once again sustained a major wound.
2. They’ve alienated the one genuine star they have left:
Alright, I’m pissed off!!! Plain & Simple

3. The Blue Jays are now a legitimate power in the American League East, which will be even more of a madhouse than it was in 2012.
