Too bad the Reds couldn't have done that back in 2003.

Nah, but they did it in 2005 and ended up with Ramon Ortiz and Eric Milton.

Screw 2003. How about 2011?

Lets live for now, not 8 years ago

How much money will they lose when only 546 fans show up all season? If a team wins in the woods but there is no one there to see it...

Looks like they got outbid on Pujols (http://www.mlbtraderumors.com/2011/12/angels-to-sign-albert-pujols.html) in the end. I hope this frees up more cash for them to go after Fielder. It would be great to get both Pujols and Fielder out of the NL Central.

I'm not gonna say that it won't work out for Miami, but I'll say that it's pretty risky when you're banking on that city's fans showing up to games over the long haul.
