ROSEMONT, Ill. — Commissioner Bud Selig said Thursday he is examining the pending blockbuster trade that sends at least three of the Miami Marlins' best players to Toronto for a package of prospects just seven months after the Marlins moved into their new $634 million home, which was financed primarily with tax money.
