Remember when it was reported earlier this week that the Marlins made a $90 million offer to Jose Reyes? Most folks thought it was a low initial offer. Well, Jon Heyman hears that it was actually $10-20 million lower than that.
He doesn’t rule out that the Marlins may increase the offer and stay competitive in the race for Reyes. And unlike, say, the Albert Pujols offer, I tend to think that there’s a tad more legitimacy to the Marlins’ bid for Reyes, if for no other reason than why would they antagonize Hanley Ramirez if their interest wasn’t truly sincere.
But really: you gotta do better than this, Miami.
