Report: Marlins bid six years for Reyes
By Adam Rubin
The Miami Marlins' introductory bid for Jose Reyes was six years, $90 million, Foxsports.com reported.
In addition to that going for them, the story cited a source saying the potential of playing in a warm climate, which would lessen the risk to his hamstrings, as well as playing for Ozzie Guillen, would be attractive to Reyes.
Meanwhile, Marlins beat writer Clark Spencer tweeted that Hanley Ramirez is not happy about potentially switching positions for Reyes. Tweeted Spencer (@clarkspencer):
"Ramirez is not at all pleased at prospect of changing positions if #Marlins sign Reyes; the two aren't the friends many portray."
