Signing Stanton could boost Loria's image

MIAMI (AP) By agreeing to pay Giancarlo Stanton $325 million over the next 13 years, Jeffrey Loria gets to keep one of baseball's premier sluggers in the Miami Marlins lineup. Whether that deal comes with some goodwill remains to be seen. Widely vilified for many of his decisions and rarely if ever outwardly bothered by the disdain so many openly direct his way, the Marlins' owner...

Can Anyone Really Be Worth More Than $300 Million?

Okay, we all know the big news, Giancarlo Stanton has broke all records by signing a record 13-year $325 million deal with Miami Marlins.

Wisdom and Links: Jeffrey Loria the Art Collector, Links and the Baseball Boogie

As we all know, Giancarlo Stanton is about to get paid. He’s so getting paid that my article on just how much he’s going to get paid isn’t just at the Baseball Continuum, but also here at The Hall. But what we are forgetting here is just how insane this possible deal is. I mean, jeez, this is JUST ONE MAN. And this is baseball, where one man cannot make that much of a difference...

Slow down the Marlins hype machine

The Marlins are the hottest team in baseball! It is the feelgood story of the early season, assuming you can be willfully ignorant of the prominent involvement of Jeffrey Loria and his acolyte David Samson. They are a team brimming with young talent and look as if they might be ready to have that talent come together to be competitive years ahead of schedule. Or maybe not. As fun...

The two biggest weaknesses of the Miami Marlins

With a young, talented team and a solid farm system, the Miami Marlins have positioned themselves very well for future success. Contention likely won't come in 2014, but this team could start turning heads in 2015. However, despite the club trending in a positive direction, the Marlins aren't a flawless team. In fact, their two biggest weaknesses don't have much to do with the product...
