Last November, the Miami Marlins decided to disassemble most of the team in a massive trade with the Toronto Blue Jays. The Marlins dumped almost every big name and contract to the Blue Jays in exchange for prospects and pundits pounced. But the Marlins may have the last laugh.
In the aftermath of the Marlins’ salary dump/fire sale earlier this week, speculation turned to pitcher Ricky Nolasco and reports that he was the next player to go. Marlins president David Samson said this wasn’t true Thursday, but trusting a Marlins executive isn’t always the best plan.
Miami Marlins owner Jeffrey Loria’s fire sale not only angered fans, but also fellow owners who now have a much harder road to hike if they ever want to secure public funding for a new stadium.
Miami Marlins fans looking for answers for why the team once again blew up the franchise didn’t get much from owner Jeffrey Loria in his first public comments since the massive fire sale Tuesday night.
