Sick of the Marlins – So Am I

Updated on November 14, 2012

When will MLB Step In Already???

Oh my. Jeffrey Loria strikes again. When will baseball step in and finally so “No More!”

I’ll make this short and sweet since there is lots of other articles about this out right now. This trade should not be allowed to happen. No trade by the Marlins to divest themselves of payroll should be allowed at all. For the life of Jose Reyes contract and I only choose his because it’s the longest one they signed.

After years of pocketing revenue-sharing money, the other owners, the commissioner, someone should say “No More!” I’m a die-hard Mets fan and I have been for over thirty years but I can’t stomach what these owners are doing to the Marlins.


This is the biggest “bait-and-switch” job you will ever see and the other owners need to squash it immediately. I said this last year (in one of my hubs) that the absence of no-trade clauses allows the Marlins to get out from under all of these contracts as soon as everything went south. I did not know it would be less than a year before that happened. If I lived in Miami I’d be a Rays fan after this disgusting behavior by the team.

The commissioner should remove Loria and Samson from ownership, force them to sell, move the team somewhere useful since south Florida was NEVER a good choice and show some integrity while he’s at it. How could anyone face the Marlins fan base after this? Not only that, why would any player want to come to play there, or stay there. Giancarlo Stanton tweeted how angry he was AND HE’S RIGHT!! And as soon as he can, he will leave this franchise behind.

C'mon man!! Enough already. Get rid of these fools and don't look back.

No more revenue sharing money for Marlins management -EVER.

And as for you people in Miami, you should NEVER go to a game again. We feel for you, we really do. Maybe not going will force them to sell.....

      I still remember the first time they did this back in the 90's after winning the World Series. It really is sad because the city thought they had a commitment (and used tax revenue for that fancy new stadium) but now the owner is doing it again.

      Yeah, this was a stunner. I still can't believe the players they dumped this time around. They suckered people in with the big signings and new stadium only to pull the rug out less than a year later.

      What are the chances we will be able to get Giancarlo Stanton up here in Toronto too?

      I feel sorry for Miami... but it isn't the first city Loria has screwed
