Trading for an all-starish player is the only way we wouldve got one! Yes his salary is high, but now we have a closer. No starts ever sign to come to toronto. When you have the leverage to pick an choose, you would never choose a different country with higher taxes and no ESPN. Great move in my opinion, and with a few tweaks, we have a consistant playoff team with a player who can close out games (which we havent seen since VC). Why do we need financial flexibility if we can't sign a star? So we can do more landry fields type moves? Come on. Teams don't give away stars with good contracts, thus this path was our ONLY way to get an elite player.
