Seriously, I know Loria has absolutely gutted his team and that doesn't bode well for the fanbase but its not like he's been completely ripped off. They got a pretty good package of prospects.

I just find it so desperate that a mayor is urging a commissioner to veto the deal.
If that's true this is ridiculous. How can he justify writing that letter when the people of Miami generally don't care about the Marlins. Their attendance reflects this and the ownership doesn't want to be stuck losing millions of dollars when they can build with the five prospects and two everyday players that they received for them. It's not like we traded them a bunch of bums.

As soon as politics gets involved with sports there's a problem. Looks like this could be the case in the failing state of the Marlins and baseball in southern Florida.
