Re. Kelly Johnson et al.

Once again, my head is spinning. After much digestion, here's what I've got:

- I don't know much about Kelly Johnson. Looks like he either swings for the fences or swings and misses. He's similar to Mark Reynolds: A player who's more about his power than his average. That power might lead to some intentional walks. Regardless, Johnson's time in Toronto will be an audition for 2012.

- It's sad to see John McDonald and Aaron Hill leave. However, they are going to a good team. They'll also have a chance to play in the playoffs. Plus, AA said there's a chance both players could be back next year. I wouldn't hold my breath though.

- Hopefully, a chance of scenery will be good for Hill. You can't help but feel sorry for the guy. He was on top of the world in 2009  and then lost his groove. He hasn't been the same since. Hill's trying as hard as he can, but hasn't been able to regain his form. It's a shame. He's a good person.

Of course, trades can't be evaluated until a significant amount of time passes.

Jack Layton, 1950-2011

In his own words.

"My friends, love is better than anger. Hope is better than fear. Optimism is better than despair. So let us be loving, hopeful and optimistic. And we’ll change the world."

Rest in peace, Jack Layton.

It begins...

In the last few days, I've had calls from "Peter Shurman" and "Bernie Farber."

There must be an election on the horizon.
