The Miami Marlins' owner Jeffrey Loria is onto something brilliant here. After firing Manager Ozzie Guillen after just one horrific season with the new-look Marlins, the Fish had a firesale. On Wednesday, the Blue Jays and Marlins did a bit of swapping, according to sources. The deal is not settled, but it will more than likely include:
Jose Reyes, Josh Johnson, Mark Buehrle, John Buck, and Emilio Bonifacio. They will shipped up north to the Jays along with $4 million. This is saving the ballclub $150 million of payroll money. From the 2012 Opening Day roster, only two players remain: Giancarlo Stanton and Logan Morrison. In return for those five players, the Marlins received Yunel Escobar, and three prospects.
However, the Marlins are currently shopping Morrison, a fan favorite among the few left in south Florida. Who better for Phillies than a cheap outfielder that can hit? Should Ruben Amaro, Jr. not want to sign B.J....

AROUND THE WEB
IT'S AN OUTRAGE
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.
Miami Marlins stud outfielder Giancarlo Stanton summed up the feeling of the team’s fans in one tweet:
Alright, I’m pissed off!!! Plain & Simple

Who can blame him? The Marlins traded away their top players in a surprise deal. They have decimated their payroll, and are now firmly entrenched in rebuilding mode. This all...
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...
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...
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...
The Miami Marlins didn’t have a good first year. Even with a new stadium, a new name, new unis, it was still the same old Marlins as it related to...
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.
In a clear move to dump salary, the Marlins traded away Reyes, Buehrle and Josh Johnson to the Toronto Blue Jays for basically nothing. For a team...
Well, so goes the "Stock Up for the New Stadium" drive in Miami.
According to multiple reports, the Miami Marlins have given up on the quest to buy an NL East title.
They are trading ace Josh Johnson, SS Jose Reyes and P Mark Buehrle along with C John Buck and utility guy Emilio Bonafacio to the Toronto Blue Jays for among others SS Yunel Escobar and a handful of...
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...
I went into TurboTax and entered the Marlins $100 million payroll going into last season, subtracted Jose Reyes, Hanley, Josh Johnson, Buehrle, Bonifacio, Buck, Infante, Gaby, Anibal, Heath Bell and Ozzie Guillen’s salary, then I added in Gorkys, Ruggiano, Giancarlo, Wade LeBlanc, Eovaldi, Jacob Turner, Adeiny Hechavarria and Yunel’s salary and it says the Marlins can get an EBT...
Never did I perceive Miami Marlins owner Jeffrey Loria as a crook. But now, today, I have a different outlook on Loria and can't stomach his sins, which are embarrassing and negligent. He drops his head in shame with a sorrowful gaze in his eyes, watching his reputation smear, seeing his image fall from grace these days when he deceived, hoodwinked, misled and lied to millions...
The Toronto Blue Jays are on the verge of acquiring Josh Johnson, Mark Buehrle, Jose Reyes, John Buck and Emilio Bonifacio from the Miami Marlins, Jon Morosi of FOX Sports reports.
The Marlins will receive Yunel Escobar, Justin Nicolino, Henderson Alvarez and Adeiny Hechavarria among other pieces.
Word is also surfacing that Jose Reyes may be on his way to Toronto also.
The baseball world is still frothing with rage over the latest and greatest Marlins fire sale trade. Actually, calling it a fire sale trade isn't fair, it is really more of a raging inferno sale trade what with them dumping their two biggest free agent purchases from the off-season before along with pretty much every other player on their roster making even a little bit of...
