Found November 14, 2012 on Off Base Percentage:
PLAYERS: Jose Reyes
TEAMS: Miami Marlins
One way or another, the Marlins sure do like the attention of the Hot Stove league. Last year, on a new tax-funded-stadium high, the Marlins bid on every big ticket free agent like their revenue sharing cash was about to expire. The Marlins will try a different, more Marlin-y approach to the off season this time around.After a less-than, shall we say, winning start to the new-look Fish, the Marlins traded Hanley Ramirez and Anibal Sanchez during the season. Monday, the Marlins inventoried the team and traded away everything else that wasn't nailed down except for poor Giancarlo Stanton. He just got to know Jose Reyes and Mark Buehrle, the two big names signed last winter. Almost an ace Josh Johnson, John Buck and Emelio Bonafacio plus $4 million are off to Toronto.Miami gets back 2012 Toronto top five prospects Jake Marisnick and Justin Nicolino, Single-A righty Anthony DeSclafani, noted homophobic-slur-eye-black-wearer Yunel Escobar, Henderson Alvarez and Jeff Math...

Miami Marlins’ mega deal: disgusting

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...

Latest Trade Proves Jose Reyes is Not a Franchise Player

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...

Blue Jays on verge of acquiring Josh Johnson, Jose Reyes and Mark Buehrle?

Miami Marlins trade Jose Reyes, Mark Buerhle, Josh Johnson to Blue Jays

Traded Marlins Affected By More Than Tax Rates

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...

Miami Marlins: Irrelevant Again

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...

4 Ridiculous Sports Trades of the Past Ten Years

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...

Jeffrey Loria, Marlins Continue Disgrace as Josh Johnson, Mark Buehrle, and Possibly Jose Reyes Appear Headed to Blue Jays

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...

Marlins have another fire sale, Giancarlo Stanton not pleased

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...

Report: Marlins Wanted Will Middlebrooks, Felix Doubront, Xander Bogaerts in Discussions for Jose Reyes, Josh Johnson

The Red Sox weren’t completely surprised by the monster trade the Marlins and Blue Jays were working on Monday night. In fact, they were reportedly part of the discussions, too. Before the Marlins pulled the trigger with the Blue Jays, the Red Sox were making a push to acquire shortstop Jose Reyes and pitcher Josh Johnson in a deal, Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe reports. But...
