Yeah, that trade was CRAZY. But we knew it was going to happen, the fans didn't show up and Loria got pissed.

The thing to remember is that if you have a payroll around 10-20M, you're going to make a good profit no matter how many people show up. The Marlins model has always worked best when they brought up their prospects in waves and sold them off for new ones. They've tried big moves like Delgado and Reyes, doesn't pay off, the one great big move they made was Pudge and that was only a 1 year deal IIRC. The last thing they need to be doing is signing relievers like Bell to big deals. The whole thing last year didn't make any sense.
