08:17 AM ET 02.26 | Quiet since November, Marins owner Jeffrey Loria came back Monday with quite a bit to say -- including "we stunk and it was a disaster," and addressing Giancarlo Stanton's future. Although Loria envisions Stanton as the centerpiece of the franchise, he made no promises that he would not be traded. ... "He's the young giant in the ball club, but you can't make promises in this game because strange things happen all the time." As for a long-term offer to Stanton, Loria said the Marlins would wait until after the 2013 season before considering one. "I don't think this is the year to go to Giancarlo with an offer," he said. "We have to let him play it out, let him feel more comfortable."

This clown has shown he will sacrifice the good of the franchise in order to chase the almighty dollar.

That too.

Lack of wins, a lot of empty seats at home games, and Loria will probably move him at the trading deadline for top prospects.

Yeah, like an owner that promises star players they won't be traded and then turns around and trades them.....apparently this guy has no idea what comes out of his mouth.

When the Marlins go in the tank again (and of course they will) that wil be his excuse for dumping Stanton so they can "rebuild." Miami fans should seriously boycot this team.

Essentially what will happen is a repeat of the Montreal Expos whereby the fans don't go to the games, crowds of about 10,000 or less are common place and attendance is around 900,000 for the year and then MLB has the other 29 teams ante into the pot and buys out Loria and then MLB transfers the team to another city ala the Washington Nats.

If they move to Nashville, they should change their name to "Cats."

"Play clean as country water."

They could move to Harlan Iowa or Harlan Kentucky and become the Harlan Marlins.

Or move to Merlin Oregon and become the Merlin Marlins.

February 26, 2013  12:00 PM ET

Or even better, move to Marlin Texas!
