Report: Blue Jays acquire Josh Johnson, Jose Reyes from Marlins

MLB

The Toronto Blue Jays and Miami Marlins are close to agreeing to a blockbuster deal that would send shortstop Jose Reyes and pitchers Josh Johnson and Mark Buehrle to Toronto, as first reported by FoxSports.com’s Jon Paul Morosi and Ken Rosenthal.

ESPN’s Buster Olney is reporting that top outfield prospect Jake Marisnick will be included in the package headed to Miami, along with veteran shortstop Yunel Escobar.

The Marlins considered trading Johnson, a 28-year-old right-hander who finished fifth in Cy Young voting in 2010, before the trade deadline last season, in the midst of his 8-14 campaign. Buehrle went 13-13 with a 3.74 ERA last year, his first with Miami after signing a four-year, $58-million contract.

Miami signed Reyes to a six-year, $106-million deal last offseason, and the former Mets All-Star hit .287 and stole 40 bases for the last-place Marlins.

Trade Stanton to the SF Giants for a case of Rice a Roni please.

As a Toronto fan, I will say this to Miami: The guys you are getting are potential superstars. Yes, Toronto could do well, but Nicolino, Marisnick, Alvarez and Hechavarria will be phenomenal guys for the Marlins for years to come.

MLB should take immediate control of the marlins. What a f*cking sham.

Stooooooooooopid trade by the Marlins.  1) Johnson will be back this season...15-game winner. 2) To its fans this looks like a SALARY DUMP by the Marlins, white flag before the season's even started! :P

Well, that caps it.  If the Jays stay healthy they're the beast of the East.
