Mark Beurhle and Jose Reyes got shipped north despite handshake no-trade promises. According to Rosenthal's sources, two players involved in the pending trade, Mark Buehrle and Jose Reyes, voiced concern with that policy and the Marlins history of dumping high salaried players at a moment's notice during their recruitment last offseason. Team president David Samson, however, told both Buehrle and his wife, Jamie, that the team was committed to a long-term vision, sources said. The fallout from the agreed to 12-player blockbuster between the Miami Marlins and Toronto Blue Jays continues, and just when you thought the Marlins couldn't possibly come away from the fire sale looking any worse than they already did, comes this very interesting report from Fox Sports' Ken Rosenthal. That's something they better be concerned about, too, because not only will they struggle to recruit future free agents, there are players still under their control who are angry, and those relationships will need to be repaired quickly if they intend on doing long-term business with them.
