This is hilarious. The Marlins are a joke of a franchise. I knew they made some awful signings last offseason, and now they’ve traded literally every single player making any significant amount of money the last couple of months.
Marlins attendance is literally going to reach an all time low. Man, this is just an awful situation for this awful team…
They’ll probably be good eventually with the players they acquired. But, for the next few years, the team is really, really in a bad situation.
The only reason to go to a Marlins game now is to see Giancarlo Stanton, who apparently is extremely mad about the trade:

The Marlins and Blue Jays agreed to a blockbuster trade earlier this week that sent Jose Reyes, Mark Buehrle and Josh Johnson to Toronto. There are clear tax ramifications for everyone involved in the trade, and as an accountant who works in this field and consults with players and agents, I find it very interesting on a number levels.
However, what makes it more interesting than...
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.
