Post Marlins

Was watching a little bit of the Marlins game last night in front of nobody at Marlins Park.
I don't know if this is going out on a limb but the Astros will win more games than Miami. The announcers sound depressed already, it's going to be a long year down in South Florida , if anyone there cares.

Loria ought to be banned from the sport.

Seriously, the man has killed two franchises now, maybe even three as it is unlikely that Tampa will ever get a stadium now. But he must be close to Selig and he certainly tows the line when it comes to spending so I suspect he won't be going anywhere anytime soon.

Owners are businessmen first.

Miami-Dade County is on the hook for billions of dollars to finance this stadium by the time all the loans and bonds are repaid.

Seriously, if a Miamian killed Loria with his own bare hands in the middle of the busiest street in town in broad daylight, I have my doubts you could find a jury that would convict.

I'm forced to agree. Loria has been an absolute disaster for that franchise, and the way he's handled the team for the past year and a half has been particularly bad, even for him. I know that Bud Selig doesn't want to upset the owners, but he needs to do something about Loria.

Is that deal still being investigated by the SEC?
