Loria convinces me that the Lerners are OK. The Lerners have taken advantage of the District, but they are respectable businessmen. Loria is a parasite.

Josh Johnson was on MLB earlier, he said the Blue Jays camp was completely different than what he experienced with the Marlins, in not so many words he implied they treat you like an adult.

Quote from: marlins.com
Purchase a ticket for Marlins Opening Night 2013 and receive a complimentary bonus ticket to any 2013 Marlins home game
in April or May!

Bonus tickets for April and May home games will be available in all sections up to the value of the Home Plate Box seating area (up to a $75 value)!

Most people who want to go to our home opener can't get tickets, and the Marlins have to give away prime seats to entice their fans to come out!

:lmao:

UPDATE:  Still plenty of tickets available through their website in all sections, and field level seats are going for around $20 on Stubhub.

Reyes is on my fantasy team. I hope the Blue Jays are awesome this year.

There would be serious outrage in any other market, but apathy rules in Dade county (unless you say something positive about Castro).

When given the choice between two opening day tickets and a 5 dollar hot and ready pizza from Little Ceasers, most Miami residents picked the pizza.

They were selling OD tickets on Groupon....

These jokes just write themselves.

There were more Marlins fans at Nationals Park on Monday than there will be at their home opener.

So, when are people going to start joining me in laughing at the Blue Jays as the new Marlins?

Who did the Blue Jays go sign for massive amounts of money?

Overhyped team with no chemistry and no fanbase to support them if their plan crashes and burns.

they did something worse, they traded the farm for players other teams signed for massive amounts of money or who needed to be resigned for massive amounts of money

There are several teams with flameout potential.  Angels and Dodgers are just as likely to go down in flames as the Blue Jays are.

I really don't see the connection between Jays/Marlins other than the trade of players between the two.

One was buying the players  to bring in fans, the other built a solid team and added some key players through trades.

time will tell, but the Jays added a lot of what the Marlins paid for plus Dickey. Their middle infield and the majority of their rotation are new, that's a little more that adding a few key players around a core

Bautista, E5, Arencibia, Lind, Rasmus, Lawrie, Morrow and Janssen isn't a bad place to start, though.

it's much better than the Marlins' starting point was, but what they did is still a massive overhaul

Linty - other than Joey Bats, which ones of those have done it consistently?  Morrow is injury prone, Janssen too although he was healthy last year, Lawrie is promising.  But  E5 has had one awesome year, and Lind and Rasmus are crapshoots.

Their hire was just as bad - their old manager John Gibbons: the guy who originally got fired for losing the locker room.

Thank you/"sanity" :clap:

Hey, E5 could be Joey Bats clone, Morrow if healthy is a stud, Josh Johnson only has to play the JZ role instead of being the man, Buerhle still is chugging along . . .  A lot can go right.  It is just they are a higher Beta team than people are saying.
