There has been yet another MLB fire sale this year as the Miami Marlins have liquidated almost every high-paid player from their roster in a deal with the Toronto Blue Jays.
Jose Reyes, Mark Buehrle, Josh Johnson, Joe Buck and Emilio Bonifacio were all sent packing, in large part due to their salaries.
This was not the first fire sale in Marlins history, and it shows that the team higher-ups are not interested in winning, but rather in being as profitable as they can be.
Unfortunately for fans, fire sales are part of the game and they will likely continue to be for a long time. Teams will deal some of their best players for 75 cents on the dollar just so that they will not have to pay them.
Here are five of the biggest fire sales of all time.
