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 and Adeiny Hechavarria, as well as pitchers Henderson Alvarez and Justin Nicolino in the deal.
So basically, they hit the “Restart” button just like the Red Sox did back in August.
As you can imagine, this left Giancarlo Stanton (probably the only talented player left on the Marlins roster) pretty upset. Stanton sent out this tweet immediately following the announcement of the deal:
Alright, I’m pissed off!!! Plain & Simple

It is, to a fan, the worst part of supporting a team. Two dreaded words: fire sale. It’s when a team trades away all their superstars way below market value to save money. And, if you happen to be a fan of the Miami Marlins, you’ve been hit again. The Marlins, perhaps the inventor of the fire sale, traded away Jose Reyes, Josh Johnson, Mark Buehrle, John Buck, and Emilio...

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 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...
Did you see the trade the Miami Marlins just pulled off with the Toronto Blue Jays? Good lord, they just got rid of their best (and most expensive) players, giving up guys like Jose Reyes, Mark Buehrle, and Josh Johnson, all for some unproven minor league prospects and underachieving major league players.
With the lopsidedness of that trade, as well as just the pure depth of guys...
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.
