Cruel Marlins Joke

Breaking News: Loria to sell the Marlins to Arison for $680m - Marlin Maniac - A Miami Marlins Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

So I heard this rumor at work today and head over to MLB to see if I could find any info. This is what I found. My heart aches.

Aren't the Marlins a cruel joke in and of themselves?

The cruelest joke of all was the one played on Miami taxpayers who were hoodwinked into paying for the new ballpark.

I noticed this in the comments section

Here's another one: the Marlins' clean-up hitter for their first two games was... Placido Polanco. I just can't get over it. And yesterday it was Greg Dobbs (!!).

If you were an opposing manager, would you even bother pitching to Giancarlo Stanton?

No, not at all. Sucks for fans, sucks for Stanton, and to anyone in general that follows baseball. They should just trade him right now...

And they are going with Jose Fernandez this weekend, a young pitching prospect, very high ceiling... who has 2 innings this spring and never pitched above A-level.

I feel bad for the fans.

They really need to get rid of the Marlins. I hate to say that since I have liked the Marlins since 1993. Kane County Cougars used to be their AA. I have met about 50% of the 1997 Marlins at a Meet & Greet. Charles Johnson won my dad $500 on a HR he hit in a particular place of the Cougars park. This is the 3rd fire sale since 1997/98. Whether it's Wayne Huizenga or Loria they keep destroying this team.

I hope that they win their law suite against the season ticket holders with the newly obstructed view who don't want to pay for season two.

They might need the cash to buy plywood for the windows later this season.
