08:11 AM ET 11.15 | A defiant Jeffrey Loria defended Miami's blockbuster-in-progress deal on Wednesday, and the franchise may not yet be done dealing. Starting pitcher Ricky Nolasco also is available, based on what the Marlins have indicated to several general managers. The Marlins also are shopping Logan Morrison, who had been penciled in as the club's first baseman entering spring training. Their strategy is a reversal of last winter's, when they went on a shopping spree to build what the front office promised would be a playoff-caliber team to match their new, $515 million stadium, which was built largely with public funds. ... "The Marlins have lost pretty much all credibility with fans," Miami Commissioner Marc Sarnoff told the Associated Press.

The commissioners and Loria screwed the taxpayers of Miami and I am sure brown sacks where pass out to all of them. Next year if you go to see the Marlins play you will be paying MLB prices to watch Triple A players play.

The only Marlins games I am going to are the 3 when StLouis comes to town.

Maybe Loria should sit down with Cards ownership and they can show him how to run a successful business that is BOTH profitable and wins titles?!?

Loria screwed over ALL of Miami and South Florida big time. He will be lucky to see anyone show up next season unless it is to support the OTHER team.

I can't figure out why people think Jays got a steal. They effectively signed a group of free agents at market / above market rates and trade young talent to do it. Better next year maybe two but after that - worse for the deal especially if Johnson leaves or gets hurt
