    "The trade has been almost universally praised by baseball experts"

    LOL

    Also, Mr. Loria, the ballpark was funded with tourist taxes. But in order to make enough funds available for the ballpark, the County had to redirect tourist funds being used to pay off the Adrienne Arscht Center. The AAC is now being paid off with property tax money. It's the shell game that was at the center of Braman's lawsuit. So to say the ballpark is funded directly by hotel faxes is true, but intellectually dishonest.

    "It ain't true, folks"

    The same pompous fuck who corrected a fan's grammar at spring training last season ("You haven't 'run' that fast, not 'ran'") now attempts to ingratiate himself with his lowbrow fan base by speaking to them in their own language. How endearing.

    Switching to The Jeffrey Group is already paying dividends.

    Look, I don't give a shit about Loria. If you want to build your own team from the bottom up, go ahead, I support that. Now, come 4-5 years from now, I don't want to see us trading our guys because we don't want to pay them.

    Therefore Mr. Loria, if you're so serious about growing from within, eat your words and offer Stanton a contract he can't refuse. Make him a Marlin for atleast the next 7-10 years. This will be phase one of gaining back your fans.

    'I humbly ask that we start fresh'
    LOL. This statement is the epitome of humble.

    I give him credit for finally talking, like what most fans wanted him to do earlier. But all the talk of "universally lauded" trades and ballpark architecture won't mean anything if he keeps Beinfest and the rudimentary system of grading players (i.e. RBIs and the such).

    He's touting how much better his minor league system got after he traded 80% his starters.

    He's positive that every one of his fans has a 60 IQ. And he's pleading with all of his low IQ fans to "CEASE THE ATTACKS".

    Go fuck yourself.

    How does that compare to others?

    He mentions creating a homegrown roster - so not necessarily right this second but more so when some of these players make their way up

    He penned his name to it, but that was written by hacks in The Jeffrey Group.

    That's because they can't draft for shit. They have gotten maybe 3 or 4 players in 10 years of drafts out of their 1st and 2nd round and not all of those have made it as MLB players yet, and are still in AA this year.

    I agree that the method of $100 million+ payroll wasn't sustainable, but it was his responsibility to know that before last season. Last season should've been a $60-70 million payroll, with it staying the same or a little bit up every season thereafter. It's Loria and his baseball people's jobs to find out if they could've maintained a profit even in a bad season with a $100+ million payroll.

    I think Loria understands just how much of a PR nightmare he's created, but honestly, as long as he's making money and putting together a meh team, I think he's cool with pissing off the fanbase.

    The whole note came off very condescending, self serving and defensive. You don't think Loria wrote that?

    if they want to build a stronger farm system they need to stop drafting cheap and start investing in latin america. otherwise that is an empty platitude

    I think Loria means homegrown not in the actual sense of it, where you drafted the players and brought them the whole way, but rather in a way that includes prospects that they traded for who then made it to the Marlins.

    I'm not sure you're allowed to call those guys homegrown, but it's been his team and fuck everyone else for awhile now, so I guess he can do what he wants.

    All of which makes some people believe this was all pre-mediated if the season went awry as it did.

    I'm 50-50 on that. I do believe he is capable of that kind of evil. We already know he is greedy & self-centered, that would kind of complete the picture.

    I bet Loria considered Hanley homegrown

    But he certainly considered someone like Dontrelle homegrown, which is fuckfaced of him to do

    The fact that Bud Selig allows this man and his imp to own and run a major league franchise is an absolute joke. It is in the best interest of baseball for someone else to own this team, yet Selig stands by and does nothing.

    He also has a product to sell. He's made the jobs of so many others around him almost impossible it's hard to believe unless they are are being wildly overpaid no one really wants it, and their job is nearly impossible and not long lasting. I'm sure there is a high turnover rate inside their ticket dept, as I can't believe anyone can make their quota's if they have them. That should be a highly coveted job and I am sure many jump at the opportunity, but I can only guess that its not very long lasting - the job and or the enthusiasm for it.

    The best comment I have read regarding Loria's ownership is "Loria is allowed to own a MLB team but Mark Cuban isnt? How does that make any sense".
