CHICAGO — Major league owners descended on Chicago on Wednesday while the Miami Marlins and Toronto Blue Jays worked on a blockbuster trade with implications for the rest of the sport.

It looked as if the owners and baseball executives were interested in hearing more about the deal, even if they didn’t want to talk about it just yet

Marlins owner Jeffrey Loria strolled by a group of reporters and said “Not today, boys. If you haven’t figured it out yet, I’m not going to figure it out for you.”

Miami traded All-Star shortstop Jose Reyes, left-hander Mark Buehrle and right-hander Josh Johnson to Toronto for a handful of the Blue Jays’ top prospects. The deal is pending physicals for the players.
