Toronto Blue Jays
The Miami Marlins are conducting another one of their infamously appalling fire sales, having already traded away half their team during the 2012 MLB season, with basically the rest going to the Toronto Blue Jays this week. With very few players remaining on the team who even makes more than six figures per year, it seems as if it is only a matter of time before they trade their highest paid player still on the roster, starting pitcher Ricky Nolasco.
If you look at who the Marlins have dealt over the past five or six months, it is quite disgusting how team owner Jeffrey Loria once again duped the fans and fleeced the taxpayers. During the season, Miami traded Hanley Ramirez, Omar Infante, Anibal Sanchez, Gaby Sanchez, Randy Choate and a few other piece players. Immediately after the season, Heath Bell was sent packing. And just this week, the Marlins dealt Jose Reyes, Josh Johnson, John Buck, Mark Buehrle and Emilio Bonafacio.
Reyes, Buehrle and Bell just signed large deals last off...
BEST OF MAXIM
AROUND THE WEB
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...
DOG DAY AFTERNOON
Because pitbulls are banned in the province of Ontario, it appears Mark Buehrle's family dog, Slater, might not accompany them to Toronto after his trade to the Blue Jays.
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...
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. Owner Jeffrey Loria caught the brunt of the anger and hate, including numerous death and rape wishes. Really? All this over a washed up Mark Buehrle? An overpaid, injury prone Jose Reyes?
One bro, ...
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. Figure it out," Loria told CBSSports.com on Wednesday as he headed for the Major League Baseball owners meetings in Chicago. Loria was both defiant and almost confrontational in his brief exchange...
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...
Chuck Hernandez has been hired as pitching coach for the Miami Marlins and new manager Mike Redmond.
The Marlins also announced the hiring of Rob Leary as bench coach Friday.
Hernandez spent the past two years as an assistant coach at the University of South Florida. He was pitching coach for the Detroit Tigers in 2006-08 and for Tampa Bay in 2004-05, and pitched in the minor leagues...
The Miami Marlins didn’t have a good first year. Even with a new stadium, a new name, new unis, it was still the same old Marlins as it related to...
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...
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. Needless to say all those players are now not a part of the Marlins.
In a clear move to dump salary, the Marlins traded away Reyes, Buehrle and Josh Johnson to the Toronto Blue Jays for basically nothing. For a team...
What the hell just happened? Seriously, this trade is ridiculous.Toronto Blue Jays get two front-line starters in Josh Johnson and Mark Buehrle, a premier shortstop in Jose Reyes, a speed demon utility guy in Emilio Bonifacio, a league average catcher in John Buck...oh, and 4 million dollars. Not only that, they were able to dump malcontent Yunel Escobar. Wow!Miami Marlins...
Marlins owner, Jeffery Loria
There are some articles where you just don’t know where to begin. The roots of this one stretch back to the Montreal Expos, touch on the Baltimore Orioles (he nearly owned them), and have their roots in ripping people off. I’m talking about Jeffery Loria, along with David Samson, and the Miami Marlins. They aren’t a dumb lot, these guys...
I went into TurboTax and entered the Marlins $100 million payroll going into last season, subtracted Jose Reyes, Hanley, Josh Johnson, Buehrle, Bonifacio, Buck, Infante, Gaby, Anibal, Heath Bell and Ozzie Guillen’s salary, then I added in Gorkys, Ruggiano, Giancarlo, Wade LeBlanc, Eovaldi, Jacob Turner, Adeiny Hechavarria and Yunel’s salary and it says the Marlins can get an EBT...
