Only one year after splurging on the free agent market, the Miami Marlins change course completely, sending two of their top signees from last season, SS Jose Reyes and P Mark Buehrle, to the Toronto Blue Jays, along with staff ace Josh Johnson. With closer Heath Bell having been traded away earlier this off-season, it’s clear that the Fish are not looking to compete now. In return for the pricey veterans, they receive a package of young players headed by SS Yunel Escobar, IF Adeiny Hechavarria, P Henderson Alvarez, C Jeff Mathis and three minor leaguers (Justin Nicolino, Anthony Desclafani and Jake Marisnick). Two other big league veterans, C John Buck and utility player Emilio Bonifacio are also headed north, as the Blue Jays see a chance to win now in a seemingly wide open AL East. Under pressure from Marlins fans decrying yet another fire sale, Commissioner Bud Selig announces that he will need to review the trade before it goes ahead, but will give his approval on November 19th.
