MLB's Winter Meetings won't even start until tomorrow morning here in Dallas/Fort Worth, but the first Big Splash has already been made down in Florida. As of now, arguably the two best shortstops in the National League now play for (former shortstop) Ozzie Guillen's re-monikered Miami Marlins
The Marlins and former Met shortstop Jose Reyes agreed to terms on a six-year, $106 million deal Sunday, sources told ESPN The Magazine's Buster Olney. Apparently, current Marlin shortstop Hanley Ramirez will move to the hot corner, where -- speculation persists -- the Marlins hope to have him across the diamond from one Albert Pujols in the next week or so.
The three biggest everyday offensive forces on this year's market are a Prince (Fielder), a King (Albert) and multiple kings (that's the translation for "reyes") ... can the Marlins complete a "royal" flush? And what do you Bauxites think of this move?
