Jose Reyes tries on his new Jays jersey.
The Toronto Blue Jays were certainly the winner of the November 12-player megadeal that sent Jose Reyes, Josh Johnson, Mark Buehrle, John Buck and Emilio Bonifacio to Toronto for Henderson Alvarez, Adeiny Hechavarria and a prospect package.
Reyes, who proved his durability by playing in 160 games, is coming off another highly productive season where he batted .287 with 57 RBI and 40 stolen bases.
When Reyes signed with Miami in December 2011, it was completely plausible to imagine the Dominican-born All-Star shortstop playing for the new-look Miami Marlins. Miami has a large Latino population and it looked like Reyes could potentially be the new face of the city.
Of course, we know Marlins owner Jeffrey Loria had a different idea of what his team should look like after a disaster 93-loss season.
Now in Toronto, Reyes not only looks incredibly goofy in blue uniform with the new Canadian maple leaf hat, but will likely not be the face of this franchise.
