09:04 AM ET 05.19 | The Marlins would not even listen to names of players that teams might be willing to offer for Giancarlo Stanton before his injury. And though he would have considerable trade value when healthy, "he wasn't helping himself with his lackadaisical play before his injury," one National League scout said. "He looked like he wants to play there like I want to be at a dentist having a root canal." Even before his injury, Stanton did not intend to ask for a trade during the season. The Marlins still haven't put a timetable on his return from his hamstring problem; it could be sometime in June.

The only news sports fans want to hear out of Miami is when the Fish will be sold.

It is understandable Stanton wants out . Now if only MLB could get Loria to sell out and retire from MLB. Maybe someone could convince Selig to retire also.

Miami tax payers should repossess the stadium and evict Loria

It's not the franchise; it's the owner.

For Darvish and Profar, sure.

Not for Olt and whatever other assorted garbage Daniels wants to give.

The right of Eminent Domain. Might be worth a try.
