    I hate to say it, but I don't really care about those Marlins. They practically traded their entire lineup.

      Because if the Organization & City doesn't care about the Team...then why should the fans.
      The Organization just had a fire sale and the city won't give the team a home to play in.

      The Marlins are my favorite NL team.
      But I just cannot take another Rebuilding period.
      The team that the Marlins would have fielded this year would have been a contender. I mean this team just recently won it's 2nd World Series.

      Jeff Loria is a cancer and MLB should strip him of his team and no longer offer a team to any group which he's a part of.

        Isn't MLB the same ones whom control the Nats..The same Nats with a
        restricted payroll, no stadium deal, and for 3 years a prospective set of
        buyers?? And you want these people to ban Loria???

            Perhaps once you get passed spring training, Florida forgets about baseball..Of course, decent ownership migh be a factor too!!

              Two years ago, my brother in law went to Florida (Miami) on vacation. I asked him to get me a TB Devil Rays cap or a Marlins cap. He couldn't find any. It was during Spring Training, so you can't say that is had something to do with the off season.

              The stores were filled with Dolphins mercandise, but no baseball merchandise.

              When I look to this board and to yours, and when I think of the story of my brother in law, I can only come to one conclusion: Baseball just is not popular in Florida. Too bad.

                  When you had the same exerience, I think that my conclusion may be right.

                    With the way things seem to be going, this forum will soon be moved to the 'Teams of YesterYear'.

                    I hope that doesn't happen because no fans deserve to lose a team. But with Loria at the helm and Selig in his usual daze, I just don't see things working out in FLA. Hope for the fans sake I'm wrong.

                      No fan deserves to lose their team...However, one has to wonder...Teams
                      charge outrageous prices for everything from tickets to hot dogs to jerseys
                      ($150 for an authentic jersey?:grouchy ), players charge for autographs,
                      then go where they get more money. Teams then demand fans build them
                      stadiums...Baseball is in a sad state...

                        Baseball isn't unpopular in Florida. The problem the Marlins and Devil Rays have is that they play in a state that has baseball fans who already have allegiances to teams up north. Considering outside of the Marlins two championship seasons, both have been horrendously bad for the majority of their team histories. Why are Yankees, Red Sox, Mets, Cardinals, Cubs, etc. fans going to root for two teams that play bad baseball and/or they didn't grow up around. Go to the different spring training locales and at most of them you will see plenty of baseball fans wearing merchandise of whatever team happens to train there.

                            So 2 Championships in 9 years doesn't mean that franchise is in good shape?
                            I know some teams that have NONE or just ONE in the last 80 years.


                            This team was still a good contender IF they hadn't traded any pieces and kept the same team it had.

                              True...but has the franchise which has only one dismember itself the next year??? 2 WC and 2 dismemberments is not really condusive to keeping your fans..
