It appears the the Toronto Blue Jays and Miami Marlins have made a trade that is being reported to be EPIC.
The names involved are Josh Johnson, Jose Reyes, Mark Buehrle, Emilio Bonifacio and John Buck. According to Jon Morosi and Ken Rosenthal, the Marlins "will receive a package that includes shortstops Yunel Escobar
and Adeiny Hechavarria, major-league right-hander Henderson Alvarez,
minor-league left-hander Justin Nicolino, center fielder Jacob
Marisnick, catcher Jeff Mathis and minor league right-hander Anthony DeSclafani." They also reported that "One source said starter Ricky Nolasco could be the next Marlins player dealt." If I'm the Yankees, I'm giving the Marlins a call on Nolasco. Anyway, you can read all about it HERE.
Huge trade and I'm sure there will be plenty of reaction tomorrow, but we wanted to fill you in tonight. The Blue Jays have some immediate help and I believe will be more effective in the American League eastern Division with guys like Reyes and Johnson. It's got to be disappointing to the Marlins fans who had high hopes last season, only to now be slowly picked apart. What a disaster down there.
