According to Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports, the Marlins have made significant offers to both Jose Reyes and Albert Pujols.
Anyway, so maybe I was wrong… So sue me…
That said, significant doesn’t sound like the three-year deal a Mets official suggested on Wednesday night., so nobody’s perfect. 😉

Last night, Jorge Sedano, a contributor for the Miami Herald said via Twitter that a team source told him that Jose Reyes to the Miami Marlins is “almost a done deal.”
Sedano also hosts a sports radio talk show in Miam for 790AM The Ticket.
As to his comment, I’m pretty certain more well-known journalists are already trying to verify if there is any truth to this, but let’s have some fun.
I’m betting that either the Marlins or Reyes will deny this news before Jon Heyman, Buster Olney and Ken Rosenthal knock down it’s veracity.
Jose Reyes didn’t come all this way to take the first offer he gets. He waited eight years to be come a free agent, I’m pretty sure his free agent status will last more than eight days.
Common sense right?
Can’t wait to read the next “This really, really, really hurts” post. 😉
With all apologies to Alex, thanks for the link!
