I seem to remember hearing about how Cleveland and Seattle were terrible baseball towns.
Look, I don't like the whole stadium extortion game anymore than the next person, but I believe the Marlins drew 3 million fans in their first year and drew pretty well the year after their 2nd world series. All of it in a crummy rainfall-prone setting in stifling summer heat. The population of Miami likes baseball as much as any population in the country. If they do the park right, I expect them to draw above average on a consistent basis.
How, then, are those people of the future—who are taking steroids every day—going to look back on baseball players who used steroids? They're going to look back on them as pioneers. They're going to look back at it and say "So what?" - Bill James, Cooperstown and the 'Roids
I wouldn't expect Loria to put any money into the team, I expect him to sell as fast as he can as soon as the new place opens.
