If you’re a Miami Marlins fan you have to be pleased with the news you’ve been hearing to start this offseason.  With offers reportedly out to almost every big name free agent on the market and a new stadium going up, the South Beach sun has never looked brighter.  Here’s the thing about Florida though……a rain storm is never far away.  Out of nowhere a dark cloud can appear and before you know it a once perfect day can turn gloomy.

That may not be the exact forecast for the Marlins when it comes to their dealings with Jose Reyes, but let’s just say that the sky is no longer completely clear.  Dino Costa of SiriusXM reported on his show Sunday night that Reyes would be a Miami Marlin if current shortstop Hanley Ramirez agreed to move to third base.  Given that most believe the two to be like Vinny and Pauly from Jersey Shore, such a move seemed like a forgone conclusion.  That, according to Clark Spencer of the Miami Herald, may not be the case at all:

I gotta say, I love the idea of this type of drama developing and causing an unforeseen rift that Miami has to deal with.  It makes for a great story and also does little to help their chances  of luring Jose to what once appeared to be a picture perfect South Beach scenario.  Nothing to do now but grab umbrella and see just how much rain is in the forecast.
