MIAMI (CBSMiami/AP) — There is no denying that fans of the Miami Marlins have a lot to complain about.

Derek Jeter is fielding complaints from Marlins season-ticket holders upset about the direction of the team under his ownership group.

At a town hall at Marlins Park, Jeter calmly answered questions for 90 minutes, and afterward said he appreciated the fans’ feedback — positive and negative.

Some 200 ticket-holders attended the town hall, the first in a series.

The Marlins haven’t had a winning season since 2009 and went 77-85 this year, but several fans argued the team was only a couple of starting pitchers shy of contending, and Jeter’s group should have added talent instead of dismantling.

Jeter responded that more spending wasn’t a long-term solution.

He said the franchise lost too many games and too much money under previous owner Jeffrey Loria.
