Re: Toronto and Miami blockbuster trade
I wouldn't be surprised to see some legal action against Loria come out of this from the city of Miami. They may end up with expensive vacant baseball stadium on that property (not that it isn't going to be vacant anyway), and this whole thing smells of corruption and fraud. It's worse than anything Mike Brown ever did.
On the other hand, the Marlins do get decent $/WAR value. Given the negative value of a lot of those contracts, they're lucky they even managed to find someone to dump them on, let alone get value out of. Doesn't change the fact that before long there may not even be a team in Miami anymore.
