This is why you don’t build stadiums for billionaires

UPDATE: It’s official, reports Buster Olney.

How many franchises can I destroy?

The Marlins have surrendered, for next year and beyond.

They have reportedly shipped Josh Johnson, Mark Buehrle, Jose Reyes, Emilio Bonifacio, and John Buck to the Blue Jays for Yesco, infielder Adeiny Hechavarria, RHP Henderson Alvarez, LHP Justin Nicolino, OF Jake Marisnick, C Jeff Mathis, and RHP Anthony DeSclafani.

Three of those players rank among Toronto’s Top 10 prospects, but that’s a helluva bounty. Miami now has just $16 million committed to next year’s payroll.

Perhaps FW should inquire about Giancarlo Stanton.
