Miami Marlins offer Jose Reyes 6 years, $90 Million
By Delia E.
I’m painfully aware that this is not Yankees news but it has been a very slow news day so far. The Miami Marlins have offered ex-New York Mets SS Jose Reyes a 6 year and $90 Million contract yesterday, reported Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports. They claim that Reyes is intrigued in playing in warm weather & under the arm of new Miami Marlins manager Ozzie Guillen. Reyes however wanted a contract that was worth at least $100 Million.
Many in the MLB industry believe that the contract offer does sound good on paper, but they are unsure if it would be intriguing enough for Reyes to take. Reyes finished the 2011 season playing for the New York Mets who are a crosstown rival to the New York Yankees.
