Reyes helps the Marlins more competitive they need more pitching when your looking up at the Phillies and Braves.
Not surprised. If he stays healthy it is a good signing. Now they have to move Hanley to second or third though. I hope he tears his hamstring off completely though.Once the Miami Marlins moved their offer to free agent infielder Jose Reyes past $100 million over 6 years, things escalated quickly. Now, according to a series of tweets from Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports, there is a deal officially in place.
According to Rosenthals sources, the deal is for 6 years and $106 million dollars, pending a physical, and does not include a no-trade clause.
SI.coms Jon Heyman reports that, as expected, the plan is for Hanley Ramirez to move to third base to open the way for Reyes to play shortstop.
Although the money is less than the $111 million that was initially rumored, Heyman also points out based on a suggestion from one of his readers that the lack of a Florida state income tax makes $106 million worth a lot more coming from the Marlins than it might from another team.
Knew this was coming but damn, it hurts.
Hanley is going to 3rd
Odd signing really.
When the hell did they change their name to the Miami Marlins?
Miami Marlins is a bad name compared to Florida Marlins, IMO. As are the new uniforms. Possibly the ugliest jerseys in baseball.
Depending on what other moves the Marlins make this off-season, they have cemented themselves as the 3rd best team in the NL East, and could possibly overtake the Braves this year. Unfortunately for me, the Mets are going to be worthless for the next 2-3 years (being generous/optimistic).
