    Re: Sad state of the Marlins

    Also, one very good side benefit from the lack of Marlins fans is the total availability of cheap tix for the Reds mid week series there in May. Plan to catch 2 of the games and 2 nites in the Keys, and I hope it is empty enough there that I can hear the chatter of the players during the games.

    Might be the best chance for up close access to the Reds all season. Plus there is the whole post game in South Beach thingy, which is not too shabby either

    Re: Sad state of the Marlins

    There is another side to this story. What exactly have the Marlins fans done to prove to the management team that they can be trusted? The Marlins have built them two completely different World Series champs in the last 15 years, and yet they had the worst season of attendance in a new stadium (in the new stadium era). 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!
