Marlins Headed North: Big Trade
Mark Buehrle, Josh Johnson, Emilio Bonafacio, Jose Reyes and John Buck are all heading north of the border to play for the Toronto Blue Jays in 2013 and beyond. This deal not only says how the Blue Jays are committed to winning next season, but also how bad the Marlins management is. After all of this is said and done, I would be surprised if any free agent would be willing to sign with Miami. Jose Reyes should play well in the dome and Mark Buehrle is heading back into the American League, where he has played so well for so many years.
In return, the Marlins are getting shortstops Yunel Escobar, Hecchavari and a pitcher.
The Marlins tanked with all of these players on their team last season, but maybe a change of scenery will help all of those big names- not to mention playing with Jose Bautista.
