Texas Rangers Trade Rumors 2011: C.J. Wilson Likely To Sign With Miami Marlins According To Source

With the Miami Marlins officially turning into the Miami Heat of baseball for the 2012 season, news has been reported that the Marlins will potentially be signing not one but two marquee free agent pitchers to solidify an already talented roster.

First, the news came about Texas Rangers starter C.J. Wilson:

Later on, through a conversation with the principal owner, president and CEO of the Texas Rangers Mr. Nolan Ryan, the legendary hurler co-signed Morosi's tweet and included information about another sought after free-agent who could take their talents down to South Beach.
Nolan Ryan just told me he expects CJ Wilson and Mark Buehrle to sign with someone other than

Wilson, Buehrle and Jose Reyes onto a loaded young roster full of talent like Hanley Ramirez, Logan Morrison and Mike Stanton? Yikes. More on this story to come.
