Many in the industry are skeptical of the Marlins’ sincerity, believing that the club will make offers that are competitive, but not good enough to accept — and that the players will sign with teams that have better chances to win.
Cue that cynical stuff I’ve been saying for a while about the Marlins trying a bit harder to build buzz than an instant-contender. Which is fine if you have a plan — no one said you have to go out and sign high-dollar free agents — but I am curious how sincere the Marlins really are about all of this.
We’ll see. Could be that Miami is in it for the long haul here and will match or beat other offers Reyes may get. And at 6/$90M for an opener, I’m guessing he’ll get some better offers.
