It appears that the Miami Marlins will do their best to make life difficult in the NL East for Mike Redmond.

Sources are indicating that the Marlins have traded RHP Josh Johnson, LHP Mark Buehrle, SS Jose Reyes, C John Buck and IF/OF Emilio Bonafacio to the Blue Jays for Yunel Escobar and several prospects.

Holy ridiculousness!!! Embarrassing for baseball are the Marlins!

I suppose I should have read the second line!1 My bad.

The Marlins tend to clean house every three or four years-- and then rebuild.

Ken Rosenthal of FOXSports.com reports that the Blue Jays have acquired Jose Reyes, Josh Johnson, Mark Buerhle, Emilio Bonifacio and John Buck from the Marlins in exchange for Yunel Escobar, Adeiny Hechavarria, Henderson Alvarez, Jake Marisnick and Justin Nicolino.

Wow. Rosenthal says that there could be even more players involved in the deal, as well. It's obviously a massive deal for a variety of reasons. The Blue Jays are adding a ton of talent and also a ton of payroll, though it's not clear how much, if any, money is changing hands. Meanwhile, the Marlins are having yet another firesale, this time just a year after finally getting their new stadium.

1) I've read (admittedly on twitter) that the Marlins don't issue *any* no-trade clauses.

2) According to Morosi, this would dump EIGHTY FOUR percent of their 2012 opening day salary.

I hope the fine people of Miami are organizing a public tar and feathering of Loria before they tie him on a boat pointed toward Cuba.

Just deplorable. Worst owner in sports.

Hopefully far, far away. Buerhle is owed a combined $39m in his age 35 and 36 seasons.

So the Blue Jays, who were at $75M on Opening Day last year, just added.... $50M in salaries for next year? That doesn't make sense. Either they are flipping some of these guys or there are some 3rd teams involved, right?

John according to Tim Kurkjian from ESPN, the Toronto Blue Jays owner is one of the richest and has been saying for sometime that he has been waiting to make a splash like this when the time was right. I guess the time was right lol.

This is what the Marlins do. And they always come back as contenders. Not a shock, and not a terrible thing to do. They weren't going anywhere with those guys. They went all in last year, and failed miserably. Now they get to start over, instead of treading water (like another certain team).

It appears the Blue Jays have upped the stakes in the east. This will make life difficult for all the other teams in the division. They may not be the favorite in the east, but they certainly made themselves the equal of the Yankess and the Rays. Should make an interesting couple of weeks. This may help the Twins as Shawn Marcum was rumored to be going to the Jays and this looks like it will not happen now.

This is just pathetic. Shame on you, Marlins.
