The Blue Jays are actually sending $16.4M along with Russell. 

Is that even legal by baseball rules?

I thought there was a percentage of the contract that had to be approved by the league.

It will have to go through league approval but that's always been just a formality IIRC.

Wow.  Jays gave Martin a 3 year deal for $60 Million.  This on top of the Tulo debacle.  Not exactly shrewd.
