The Marlins may have saved a bunch of money, but they have also alienated their fanbase permanently. And what's the goal here, to make profits or to win? These moves do nothing to help the team win, and it likely damages the future prospect of that ever happening again as long as Loria is still the owner. Loria will still make his fistful of cash, but at what cost?

The players the Blue Jays are acquiring may be overpaid, but they are still good to great players. You can't seem to grasp this concept. They will actually help the team win a lot more games than they did last season. I can't possibly see what weird perspective you're looking at this through.
