Hot Stove: Jose Reyes to the Marlins “Should Be Happening” Says Guy Who Knows SomebodyBy
Earlier this morning, I wrote that I’d believe the Marlins were for real when they signed their first big-name free agent of the off-season. Later in the day, word spread that Jose Reyes and Marlins management dined at Joe’s Stone Crab. Well, tonight, according to a source with insider knowledge, whom I trust:
Reyes should be happening.
When pressed, the source followed it up with:
Wouldn’t say it’s done yet, but sounding good.
Two hours later, I received this message:
Yeah, they think it’s a lock. F—— crazy.
Of course, until that contract is signed, anything can happen. But, this news is even better than the earlier news and it comes from someone I trust, as opposed to some random guy tweeting things on the internet. I’ll continue to keep you updated, giving you the info as it hits my phone, but for right now, what you see above is what I’ve got. And even though there are no financial details and it can’t technically be considered concrete, it’s certainly something for Marlins fans to be excited about.
