And, this happened after the Marlins went crazy and did exactly what the fans wanted: to spend money.
I don't necessarily like the way the Marlins do business, but I can kind of understand why they do it that way.
Mgmt dismantled the 97 team before 98 started. The 2003 team was gone before the end of 2004.
Miami fans might suck, but you can't use the marlins to reach this conclusion.
But I will say that I would be happy, as a Reds fan, with 2 WS titles since 1997. To give Loria any credit there, though, is totally insane, since he bought the team in 2008.
Anyway, best part of marlins games is The Clevelander outpost. Dayyyyyum!
