Marlins Should Trade Stanton

There is no denying that Giancarlo Stanton is having a monster year and potenially an MVP award winning season. It’s also no secret the unwillingness of the ownership and front office to pay players and even keep superstars in Miami. It is obvious to most fans that Jeffrey Loria should open up his wallet and pay Stanton what he deserves. The million dollar question is whether Stanton would want to stay with an organization that sells off top tier talent for pennies on the dollar or try to win with another organization that is committed to winning a championship.

Marlins Opening Day Disaster

The Miami Marlins won their season Opener against the Colorado Rockies 10-1 and pitching phenom, Jose Fernandez, threw 94 pitches and an amazing 73 for strikes, but that wasn’t why the Marlins Opening Day was a disaster. Owner Jeffrey Loria’s pride and joy, Marlins Park as well as their staff were unprepared to handle Opening Day. Opening Day left a bitter taste in a lot of fan’s mouth including my own.

The Marlins Feel Cheated?

According to an article in the Sun-sentinel by Juan C. Rodriguez, the Marlins feel cheated because the Red-Sox did not show up with enough Major League talent to a spring training game. A spring training game that the Marlins jacked the prices up on because it was the Red-Sox. Let’s marinate on the fact that the Marlins felt cheated another team did not field a major league roster. Dear Marlins, now you know how your fans, or what’s left of them, feel. Read the rest of this entry »

Who is Ready For Marlins Baseball?

Show of hands, who is ready for another season of Marlins baseball? Ok, don’t everyone throw their hands up at once. I’ll be honest I forgot all about the Marlins because they’re buried behind the Florida Panthers on the sports section of the paper because the Heat and the Dolphins are getting all the headlines. I didn’t even realize the Marlins were playing spring training games. I’m excited for Marlins baseball can’t you tell? Read the rest of this entry »

Do the Marlins Still Play in Miami?

Do you know what the biggest surprise in Miami sports was in June and it wasn’t the Miami Heat repeating as champions? It was the Miami Marlins having the one of the best records for the month of June in baseball. You read that right, the Marlins were actually winning. I’m sure most people except close friends, if he has any, and family of Jeffrey Loria forgot the Marlins were still playing here in Miami. Mimes have been making more noise than the Marlins have been but things are slowly, starting to turn around, but lets not get ahead of ourselves its Loria we’re talking about. The most volatile, loathed and hated owner in Miami sports history. Read the rest of this entry »

Marlins Home Opener 2013

The day has finally come, Opening Day for the Marlins at Marlins Park. I know you’re all super excited. For weeks now your joy has been so overwhelming that the Miami Marlins had to enlist the help of GroupOn, again, to get those ticket sales roaring. The feedback has been so positive that Marlins thief, I mean owner, Jeffrey Loria has been patting himself on his back for bringing the fans back with his offseason message of “Get over it” or basically saying he’ll get his money either way so kiss his art dealing ass.

Dear Jeffrey Loria

Dear Jeffrey Loria,

I know it’s been about over a month since you so genuinely expressed your views with us in an ad in the major papers across South Florida and I thought I would reply in kind to your gesture. I appreciate your forthrightness as well as your dishonesty, I mean honesty. I also thought it was so thoughtful of you by taking the time out of your busy schedule demolishing the Marlins as a team and organization to tell all of us that the media is wrong and you were right. I mean how can anyone think less of you? You did single handily screw over the crooked politicians of the city of Miami. No small feat that is for certain. Read the rest of this entry »

Marlins owner Jeffrey Loria burns fans again.

loria
Miami Marlins owner Jeffrey Loria must have one of those mirrors that tells him exactly what he wants to hear. “Mirror, mirror on the wall, who is the best baseball owner of them all?” . Chances are if we gave that mirror some truth syrum it would tell  Mr Loria  “Well it sure as heck ain’t you buster!!”
The Marlins misguided owner out took full page ads in all four major South Florida newspapers this past weekend, blaming everyone except himself for what ails his franchise. This guy simply just does not get it. Obviously he must think South Florida baseball fans are clueless when he says things like  “Objective experts credited us with going from the 28th ranked minor league system in baseball to the fifth best.” Truly he must be losing it, which moron could not improve a depleted minor-league system by trading off the majority of  its best major-league players? I guess we should all be relieved that the $450 million Loria received in public money to build a new stadium is according to him a, “burden incurred by tourists who are visiting our city,” and “NOT the resident taxpayers.” Really Jeffrey ?

Let the record show that  Loria received a publicly funded brand new stadium, acquired big name players one year, got us all excited that we would contend for years to come and then had the dreaded fire sale shipping everyone off and now he sits in position to profit financially while we are saddled with a triple A team. One of those prized free agents signed a year ago shortstop Jose Reyes said the owner told him to buy a house in Miami – and two days later traded him.

Furthermore Loria sent workhorse pitcher Mark Burhle to Toronto of all places knowing  his pet pit bulls aren’t allowed there. So the Burhle family will live in Chicago this season while Mark plays in Toronto. That Loria has a heart of gold doesn’t he ? Loria’s  mistakes and poor baseball decisions saddled him with a hefty payroll but he never blamed himself.  He blamed the under performing players that drew over 2.2 million fans to Marlins Park a year ago. Josh Johnson, Anibal Sanchez, the aforementioned Burle and Reyes are all gone. Good luck even sniffing 2 million fans this year Mr Loria. Nice gesture with the letter but this Marlin fanbase has been burned by this regime before. Fool me once shame on you, fool me…..oh, nevermind.

Here’s the latest installment video, this one about the Miami Marlins and Toronto Blue Jay trade situation.
