Sources: Reyes deal with #Marlins does NOT include no-trade clause. Heath Bell passed physical, deal is official. #MLB

We had Rollins on the cheap for the past few years, mostly because he has an awful agent. Reyes setting the market limits the ability for teams to dupe him again, though. That and the fact that it might be a competition between the Phils and the Fielder-less Brewers.

Well I don't even think the Marlins won a bidding war on Reyes. They didn't give him the NTC he wanted and the deal was about $10m off of what it was originally reported as. I think it was more of a case of Miami riding the rave from the Heath Bell signing.

And now that both Reyes and Bell are in Miami, Buehrle's gotta be taking us seriously. Reports are the Marlins are a favorite for Buehrle. Reports also saying if Albert Pujols leaves St. Louis, Miami is the front runner.

I'm glad they weren't bluffing. I'd be okay with this being it (so long as they make a decent starting rotation, one way or another).

Even after signing Reyes, #Marlins now plan to make aggressive push to sign Pujols, sources say. More to come at ESPN.com

The free agent compensation system is a joke. The Mets will only get a third rounder from the Marlins. Should have traded him last year.

Happy, sad Ron Santo finally gets Hall call - SweetSpot Blog - ESPN

Bittersweet, but I think we all knew it would happen this way. I'm glad this day finally came.

Why it's even implemented is what I don't understand...

I'm much more of a fan of the NHL style UFA/RFA stuff.

the marlins will be paying a shortstop who relies on his legs, who couldn't keep his legs healthy in his 20's, 16+ million per year well into his 30's. enjoy.

well... correction. SOMEONE will be paying jose reyes 16+ million per well into his 30's, likely some combination of the marlins and whomever they inevitably trade him to when they blow the team up again in a three years.

Very unexpected trade here. We've shipped Sergio Santos, our young stud closer whose contract we extended in September, to Toronto for one of their young stud pitching prospects. A guy named Nestor Molina.

Nobody saw this coming at all. Santos was in line to be our closer for the next two or three years at least. Or at least that's what everyone thought. Crazy talented kid.

I'm not angry about the move or anything because it seems we got good talent in return...it's just that I'm very surprised by it. Hmmm. I have a feeling this could be just the first in an extremely busy trading offseason for the Sock.

Hard fucking stove.

I do already know what my nickname is going to be for our newly acquired pitcher. And it's Richard Alpert.

Is he ageless? Because, if so, that would be an excellent pickup.

He's ageless, and nobody knows whether or not he's wearing eyeliner. Actually, another good nickname for this guy would be THE BLACK ROCK.

Yeah, that's it.

If the White Sox are in rebuilding mode, I'd love a trade for Danks.
