Miami Marlins projected lineup:
1. SS Jose Reyes
2. 2B Omar Infante
3. 3B Hanley Ramirez
4. RF Mike Stanton
5. 1B Gaby Sanchez
6. LF Logan Morrison
7. C John Buck
8. CF Emilio Bonifacio
Obviously this changes if the Marlins go and sign Pujols too.

Even if the plan is to move Wright eventually, there's really no reason to do it now. His contract basically states that his 2013 option gets voided if traded, so basically, we can either deal him now in essentially a contract year, or we can wait a year, enjoy another year of him in a Mets uniform, hopefully a rebound season in a fixed Citi Field, pick up his option, and deal him a year from now in essentially a contract year.
Wilpons seriously need to sell the team. The Mets are now a small market team who play in NYC.
Adam RubinAlderson confirms that if the offer is six years, $110 million for Reyes, that is beyond the Mets' threshold.
Sandy confirms if 6-111, Mets out
Sucks for the Mets. Sorry, guys (well, sorry to most of you - you know which 2 are excluded).
For years I've been saying the Mets best move would be the trade Reyes - there's no doubt they would've gotten way, way more than a couple draft picks for him. Hate to say I told you so, but I told you so.

The Wilpons are ruining NL baseball in NY. Wish you guys could get the team sold. It's more fun when we have two good teams in this city.
Nevermind, if the Mets were in a better financial position, this wouldn't have happened.
Congrats to the Mets for becoming a AAA franchise. Absolutely non-competitive.
I feel for the Met fans. This penny pinching is unfair.
Small market strategies will never work in NY.
Six years for him is insane too. If you were in good financial position, it would be a bad contract to match. SeanRyanTylerDurdendrunkkidcatholicMantle&Namath is right... far too long to give to a guy that relies on his legs that much - and legs that are so prone to injury.
Jose Reyes wasn't really a smart long term investment. But the Marlins are building to win now, they will have a solid team. They aren't done yet either. Apparently they could reach a deal with Mark Buehrle as well if they add a no trade clause and they are still in on Albert Pujols.
If I was Mark Cuban I would buy low on the Mets instead of going after the Dodgers.
70 million is an embarrassment. 90 million is non-competitive. Mets should be in the 120-140 range on a low year. The entire division is getting better and raising the stakes. I don't see where the Mets don't end up finishing last.
This year is the 50th Anniversary and to celebrate it, the Mets will be serving their fans a 50 win team. Listening to Alderson last nite was depressing. He cited that the team lost $70 million last year as well dwindling attendance. NOBODY CARES. You have to spend money to make money. Especially in NY.
I got the impression that he is shopping David Wright. If that happens, what happens this year with no Wright and Reyes? How many people are going to attend the games then?
Look at the empty seats in the stadium, not real hard to figure out.I still don't know how they lost $70 million.
