So the Marlins are big players this offseason while the Yankees are sitting on the sidelines talking about making drastic cuts to their payroll. Huh?
The Mets were never serious players for Reyes this offseason, they never even made him an offer. Now because he signed with the Marlins, who have their first and second round picks protected because of their record, the Mets will only get a 3rd round pick and a supplemental round (between the 1st and 2nd rounds) pick. Seems to me as if they could have gotten more by trading him.
