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.
