TEAMS: Miami Marlins
As news of Tuesday evening's Marlins-Blue Jays blockbuster trade began to leak out, Miami's superstar right fielder Giancarlo Stanton had this to say.   Alright, I'm pissed off!!! Plain & Simple — Giancarlo Stanton (@Giancarlo818) November 13, 2012   Stanton is pissed off, as he should be. It's not every day that your franchise dumps every piece of worthy talent on the major league roster in exchange for (essentially) salary relief and prospects. If the Marlins truly want to build the franchise around Stanton, pissing him off like this isn't the way to go about things. [follow]

Ricky Nolasco could be on his way out of Miami

Even though the Marlins traded yesterday half of their team, Joel Sherman of the New York Post heard from two rival executives that Ricky Nolasco will be the “next to go” from the Marlins. Just one year after the Marlins built a new stadium and gave away millions of dollars in free agency, they have decided to dismantle the team and go back to step one. Nolasco, 30, went 12-13...

Marlins Owner Jeffrey Loria Remains Defiant, Insists He Isn’t Selling Team

The Marlins have been highly criticized in the wake of their mega-trade with the Toronto Blue Jays, and perhaps rightfully so. It’s the team’s third firesale in its 20-year franchise history, and second under current owner Jeffrey Loria, who secured about 80 percent public funds for the team’s new ballpark which opened in 2012 — a cost which could rise to about $2.4 billion...

21 NSFW Marlins Fans Wishing Death To Jeffrey Loria After Fire Sale

Who knew the Marlins had such passionate fans? The stadium is always empty so it came as quite a shock that so many Marlins bros were pissed off after yesterday’s blockbuster trade.

Defiant Marlins owner Loria rebuffs talk of fire sale

Miami Marlins owner Jeffrey Loria doesn't care if he's taking heat for the huge 12-player deal between his team and the Toronto Blue Jays. "We finished in last place.

Loria was both defiant and almost confrontational in his brief exchange...

How the Marlins Screwed South Florida – My Take

Although it sucks, I have no problem with the Marlins/Blue Jays trade…in theory.  I believe that every team has the right to run its organization as it wishes.  If they want to spend as much as possible and but every championship, that is okay.  If they always want to be at the bottom of the payroll scale and play out each season, I am okay with that also.  If a team is winning...

The Marlins Are a Well-Run Company

It’s true, probably. If you remove emotion from the equation, the Marlins of the past two decades have been a successful corporation. Even under the newest ownership, they’ve satisfied all of the requirements you might put on a great franchise. Your appraisal of their work to date, and even their trade this week, includes emotion, but an honest eye towards the bottom line can...

Miami Marlins: Irrelevant Again

The Miami Marlins made a big splash last offseason by bringing in Ozzie Guillen as manager and signing big name free agents Jose Reyes, Heath Bell and Mark Buehrle.

How the Miami Marlins Lost Their Minds
