Jose leaves Miami less then one year after signing his mega deal. Are you kidding me?
Ken Rosenthal of FoxSports.com is now reporting that the Miami Marlins made verbal promises to Jose Reyes and Mark Buehrle that they would not be traded. They were apparently told that they were players to be counted on and not to worry about being dealt. The promises made were only verbal, as Miami has a club policy of not giving players no-trade clauses in their contracts. Those promises lasted less than one full year, as both players were dealt to the Toronto Blue Jays in the 12-player blockbuster deal on Tuesday.
The Miami Marlins franchise is freakin a joke.
They go out last offseason prior to opening a new ballpark and spend big to bring in notable free agents, and then less then one year later they trade all of the away.
They traded the face of the team in Hanley Ramirez for next to nothing in an effort to shed his salary. I’m sure they would have loved to keep him around, but they needed hi...

Okay Mets fans; what is your lasting memory of former shortstop Jose Reyes? For me, a lifelong Mets fan who has been with the team through good and bad (mostly bad), mine is his final game in Queens.
With a batting title in his grasp, Reyes laid down arguably the best bunt of his career to date and beat it out for a single. The hit raised his batting average to .337 and gave...
Following the latest Miami Marlins fire sale that will send Jose Reyes, Mark Buehrle, Josh Johnson, John Buck and Emilio Bonfacio to the Toronto Blue Jays in yet another despicable move by team owner Jeffrey Loria, a couple of the players are speaking out and saying that management lied to them. Reyes and Beuhrle are saying that the Marlins gave them verbal guarantees that they would...
Miami Marlins fans are not the only ones feeling betrayed by ownership's decision to break up the club.
Shortstop Jose Reyes and left-hander Mark Buehrle, two of the five Marlins headed to Toronto in a pending blockbuster, are upset that the team broke verbal promises to them regarding trades, according to major-league sources.
The Marlins do not award no-trade clauses, but...
This offseason became a lot more interesting last week when the Toronto Blue Jays and Florida Marlins made a blockbuster trade. Toronto shipped some of it’s better prospects off to Florida for three of it’s best players: Jose Reyes, Josh Johnson and Mark Buehrle. Toronto, based solely on perception, is now a better team and [...]
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...
Days after trading star shortstop Jose Reyes and standout pitchers Josh Johnson and Mark Buehrle to the Toronto Blue Jays for a slew of prospects, the city of Miami remains wrongly outraged at Marlins owner Jeffrey Loria for conducting yet … Continue reading →
