Less than a year after making a huge splash in free agency, the Miami Marlins reportedly are dismantling their team and sending some of their best — and most expensive — players to the Toronto Blue Jays.
FOXSports.com reporters Jon Paul Morosi and Ken Rosenthal say that pitchers Josh Johnson and Mark Buehrle are being traded from the Marlins to the Blue Jays as part of a blockbuster deal. They say shortstop Jose Reyes, who signed a six-year, $106 million deal last offseason, is also part of the trade. Catcher John Buck and utility man Emilio Bonifacio reportedly are also being sent to Toronto.
The Marlins reportedly are getting back shortstop Yunel Escobar and infielder Adeiny Hechevarria. Morosi says left-handed pitching prospect Justin Nicolino will also be going to Miami. Pitcher Henderson Alvarez, who went 9-14 with a 4.85 ERA last season for Toronto, is said to be part of the deal.

During the long baseball season and the dog days of summer, Mark Buehrle may be missing one of his canine companions.
Buehrle is a huge dog lover who’s done charity work around animals and pet adoption, said some harsh things about Michael Vick and is also the owner of a Staffordshire terrier named Slater. When Buehrle first signed with the Miami Marlins last offseason, he and...
The Marlins and Blue Jays agreed to a blockbuster trade earlier this week that sent Jose Reyes, Mark Buehrle and Josh Johnson to Toronto. There are clear tax ramifications for everyone involved in the trade, and as an accountant who works in this field and consults with players and agents, I find it very interesting on a number levels.
However, what makes it more interesting than...
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.

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.
