Miami Marlins send Jose Reyes, Josh Johnson and Mark Buehrle to Tornoto Blue Jays in 5-Player Trade

Well, that certainly didn't last long...

At the end of last season, all the talk was about the Florida Marlins re-branding themselves as the Miami Marlins. They changed their name as well as their uniforms. Then they went out and spent about $200 million while signing Free Agents, Jose Reyes, Mark Buehrle and Heath Bell. They are all gone.

Bell was traded the Diamondbacks last month. Now Reyes, Buehrle, Josh Johnson, John Buck and Emilio Bonifacio are headed to the Great White North.
