Good call by Melky Cabrera, avoiding more negative publicity, and also protecting the integrity of the game.

Melky Cabrera is coming to Toronto for the sum of 16 million for two years. We will see.

I saw a piece (Wall Street Journal?) about the players being traded to Toronto and the loss in net income due to the higher taxes in Canada. Not much for the smaller salaries, but a non-trivial (but not game-breaking) amount for the big ones. When negotiating a salary from scratch you can adjust but when traded, it just takes the listed salary to the other team.
