In a stunning late evening deal, the Miami Marlins have traded Jose Reyes, John Buck, Emilio Bonifacio, Mark Buerhle, and Josh Johnson to the Toronto Blue Jays for Yunel Escobar, Adeiny Hechavarria, Henderson Alvarez, Justin Nicolino, Jake Marisnick, Jeff Mathis, and Anthony DeSclafani.
The trade leaves the Marlins with a committed payroll of $16 million for 2013. They will also chip in $4M in cash.
(Wow.....just wow. How's that mega deal feeling now Reyes? 11 months in South Florida and now your in freaking Canada. How is it legal for Loria to even own this team? I can hear the clamors for a salary floor already.)
