ESPN: Jose Reyes To Miami Marlins Expected To Happen

ESPN’s Buster Olney is reporting today that he expects free-agent shortstop Jose Reyes to sign soon with the newly-named Miami Marlins.

“There is an expectation they will work something out with Reyes for something in the range of five years, $18-20M a year. They are seen as the team that’s going to be most aggressive and he certainly fits the style that Ozzie Guillen loves to play. He loves to have a team that runs the bases aggressively, puts pressure on opposing defenses. Reyes would be a centerpiece for that with Hanley Ramirez moving to another position.”

If you are a Twitter user you likely know that a report hit the Twitter-verse Sunday that the Reyes-to-the-Marlins deal was done, but that the report was quickly found to be inaccurate.

When word like this comes from a reputable source like Olney, however, you have to think this is going to happen. The Mets certainly can’t match those numbers.

The most interesting dynamic in all of this, for me, will be to see how the moody Hanley Ramirez takes being booted off shortstop by Reyes’ arrival.
