Reaction to the Blue Jays' blockbuster trade on Twitter

It was the unexpected trade of the summer last night as the Blue Jays swapped Jose Reyes and top prospects to the Colorado Rockies for all star Troy Tulowitzki and veteran reliever LaTroy Hawkins.

The surprise move, which comes as the Blue Jays chase the Yankees for a playoff spot is reminiscent of the McGriff, Fernandez, Carter, Alomar trade that shaped the World Series winning Jays teams in the early 1990s.

What's not a surprise is that the Twittersphere has been lit-up all day with reaction to the trade. We trolled the internets to pick out some of our favourite reactions below.
