Record Setting Trade Deal With Jays
- Updated: November 20, 2012
The trade between the Miami Marlins and the Toronto Blue Jays became official on Monday afternoon. The deal that sends Jose Reyes, Josh Johnson, Mark Buehrle, Emilio Bonifacio, and John Buck to the Blue Jays in exchange for Yunel Escobar, Adeiny Hechavarria, Henderson Alvarez, Justin Nicolino, Jeff Mathis, Jake Marisnick and Anthony DeSclafani becomes the largest trade in team history.
The Marlins focus now remains to be unknown by many fans. However, I believe this trade will help the team long term. Short term team success is still hard to be determine at the moment.
For a franchise that finished in last place in the National League East standings, with those players being sent to Toronto, the Marlins have the opportunity to rebuild the team without as much pressure as they came across last season in the first year of a brand new ball park, uniforms, and free agent salary players.
Marlins Nation might disagree with how I feel about this trade, and that’s OK. Your frustration is understandable. Just remember fans, once a part of Marlins Nation, always a part of Marlins Nation. Stick with your team. The long term future is bright down in Miami.
