Basically what happened is Miami built a new stadium, that noone in the city wanted built, cost many City Councillors their jobs and they also said they were going to spend big money in order to bring in fans and win. Well, fast forward to last year when the stadium opens, late, WAY over budget and then the Marlins totally crap the bed. Then they turn around and trade their best players for spare parts. That trade is basically the equivalent of us trading Hall, Petry, Hemsky and PRV for Jeff Finger and a bunch of guys drafted in the 5th round.
