Not only does it appear that the Marlins have no regard for the city of Miami and the fans, they have no regard for the Marlins themselves. Wait until you read this, brought to you originally by Ken Rosenthal who's been all over this story. According to Rosenthal HERE:

"Shortstop Jose Reyes and left-hander Mark Buehrle, two of the five Marlins headed to Toronto in a pending blockbuster, are upset that the team broke verbal promises to them regarding trades, according to major-league sources.

The Marlins do not award no-trade clauses, but club officials, while recruiting Reyes and Buerhle as free agents last offseason, assured both players that they would not be moved, sources said..."

How disgraceful is this Jeffrey Loria, and team president David Samson?  So clearly to them,  these players are property. No regard to loyalty at all. They are only out for themselves. Don't forget, Buehrle was going to sign with the Nationals for 3 years, but when the Marlins offered him 4 years, that "stability" package that players like when they're at the end of their careers, he switched to Miami.  When it came to Reyes, he went for 6 years.  Now, they may being going to Toronto if Bud Selig approves it.  Bottom line, he shouldn't and he needs to have to balls to reject this trade.  If not, dare I say, not only do Loria and Samson need to walk, so would Selig. This is now borderline corruption.

Players as property and disregard for respect of players who give their talents to a team to win a championship. Have we gone back in time?  My God.  Curt Flood.... where are you when we need you?
