The Miami Marlins’ blockbuster trade with the Toronto Blue Jays has been the cause of much outrage, and most of it has focused on Marlins owner Jeffrey Loria. Obviously, the next step of that outrage is to animate it.
The good folks over at Next Media Animations got right on that, as the Taiwanese animation of the deal certainly lives up to expectations. In it, Loria is shown destroying the Montreal Expos, lying to Florida taxpayers about fielding a competitive team and locking the doors to the Marlins’ locker room so his players can’t leave. The video also claims that Loria is a worse owner than Frank McCourt, who was forced to sell his team, and wonders why Bud Selig won’t step in and do the same with Loria and the Marlins.
