Found November 14, 2012 on PRO Rumors:
PLAYERS: Ricky Nolasco
TEAMS: Miami Marlins
Even though the Marlins traded yesterday half of their team, Joel Sherman of the New York Post heard from two rival executives that Ricky Nolasco will be the “next to go” from the Marlins. Just one year after the Marlins built a new stadium and gave away millions of dollars in free agency, they have decided to dismantle the team and go back to step one. Nolasco, 30, went 12-13 with a 4.48 ERA, 5.9 SO/9, 2.2 BB/9, 0.9 HR/9 and a 3.87 FIP in 191.0 innings with the Marlins. Image by ElCapitanBSC under the Creative Commons License Agreement.

MLB Rumors: How Long Until Miami Marlins Trade Ricky Nolasco To Complete Latest Fire Sale?

The Miami Marlins are conducting another one of their infamously appalling fire sales, having already traded away half their team during the 2012 MLB season, with basically the rest going to the Toronto Blue Jays this week. With very few players remaining on the team who even makes more than six figures per year, it seems as if it is only a matter of time before they trade their...

Giancarlo upset over Marlins deal

Giancarlo Stanton is one of the few remaining good players on the Marlins following the team's fire sale, and he is not happy about it.

Jose Reyes Might Be Smarter Than All Of Us

Jose Reyes is now a Toronto Blue Jay ... not even one calendar year after he signed a six year, $106 million contract with the Miami Marlins. Don't cry for Reyes too much. He made his own bed by going after the largest deal on the table (and pretty much the only deal on the table), while assuming all risks in signing a backloaded deal with a franchise known for its garage sales...

Marlins have another fire sale, Giancarlo Stanton not pleased

Well, the Florida Miami Marlins have certainly perfected the art of the “fire sale.” The Marlins dumped shortstop Jose Reyes, pitchers Mark Buehrle and Josh Johnson, utility player Emilio Bonifacio and catcher John Buck in a trade with the Toronto Blue Jays on Tuesday night, successfully dumping approximately $165 million in salary in the process. Miami got shortstops Yunel Escobar...

Miami Marlins: Irrelevant Again

The Miami Marlins made a big splash last offseason by bringing in Ozzie Guillen as manager and signing big name free agents Jose Reyes, Heath Bell and Mark Buehrle. Needless to say all those players are now not a part of the Marlins.

Jeffrey Loria, Marlins Continue Disgrace as Josh Johnson, Mark Buehrle, and Possibly Jose Reyes Appear Headed to Blue Jays

The Miami Marlins disgrace to baseball continues.   Two reports have surfaced that the Marlins are unloading even more of their talent.   First, Bob Nightengale of USA Today reports that the Marlins are letting teams know that "virtually everyone" is available.   Then, Jon Morosi of Fox Sports just reported that the Marlins are close to sending the Marlins' best...

A Realistic Way the Phillies Could Acquire Giancarlo Stanton

Your browser does not support iframes.  Giancarlo Stanton is pissed off.  And why wouldn't he?  A rising star that was part of the new Miami Marlins, he finds himself surrounded by a bunch of rookies.   This is a demoralizing blow to the budding superstar.  But, by making the major league minimum on a frugal Marlins team, Stanton is not slated to go anywhere.  But - maybe...
