Default Marlins Sign Jose Reyes to 6 year, $106 Million Deal

Let this thread be a clearinghouse for Reyes news throughout the silly season.

What we know
  • Hanley would switch positions for him
  • Marlins interest has been rumored for some time
  • Mets won't be making more than a token offer
  • Tons of people show up to JRS with Reyes jerseys

Mike Francesca has heard that Jose Reyes has received an offer and is scheduled to meet with the Marlins.
Don't know how much credibility Francesca has.

Did he receive an offer from the Marlins, or was it an offer in general (from a random team)?

Also, if he did receive an offer it must be serious considering he's meeting with us.

There would be no more exciting a 1-4 in baseball if we signed him, that's for certain.

Fixed, sorry.
--------------------
However, I like Boni in the starting lineup if he is for real.

Actually, this is a legit question.

If we sign both Reyes and Cespedes, does the latter start on the bench? It's hard to see Bonifacio not being in the Opening Day lineup after his '11 season. Reyes starts at SS and Hanley is at 3B if he's ready to go right away. Does Cespedes start on the bench? In the minors?

I'd expect them to trade Lomo for a cheap starter if they signed a position player. Especially if they also sign the Cuban kid and expect him to play right away.

SS Reyes
LF Boni
3B Hanley
RF Stanton
1B Gaby
CF Cespedes
2B Infante
C Buck

Cespeds could go the Chapman rout and start Triple-A in New Olreans. It would really depend on his spring.

I really am opposed to trading Logan.

Signing Reyes, Cepedes, and any legit SP (Buerhle, Edwin) would be tremendous.

Would become lights out if Morrison/Dominguez then turned into Gio. Oakland would have to do that trade.

But I don't understand the payroll of this. Team is at +/- $65 right now. Reyes/Cepedes would easily cost $25 combined. This is $90 already. Adding a needed FA starter (their "top" offseason priority) and a few bench guys, and it's well over $100. I guess they could move Nolasco, but you'd still have to replace him.

This math doesn't add up unless they open the bank. But we can hope.

If we got Gio I think I'd be OK with dealing Lomo.

Same here, I know Gio wants out of Oak. and said he would take a paycut to play for us. I got this information from my bestfriend who is very close to him.
