  1. please buy the team jeb bush. please. That would be awesome.Not going to happen! If Jeffy lost money he would sell this in a heartbeat, that's why I think it's bs he lost money last year. With the Marlins recent history of being upfront and honest about the dollar numbers do you really think he would tell us about how much he lost or made. which is why deadspin needs to get some solid evidence and selig can finally have enough to push him out. also, can we try to get thousands of signatures to sign a petition to oust loria. if we get enough it may get coverage.....Admin wanna help get it started? i mean look at how they forced frank mccourt out and loria gets to run wild. Are you kidding? Admin is Loria's biggest fan. He wrote an entire article defending him this offseason.
  2. Japan's too good. I can't see them not winning the tournament. I hope I'm wrong...
  3. I love baseball too much to let the marlins offseason shenanigans deflate my interest in MLB as a whole
  4. google YOLO Best post I've seen in a while. Possibly ever.
  5. I'll guess he hits around 45 and the entire team hits around 135, which would be 33.3%. He'll be lucky if he gets 45 pitches to hit all season. He isn't Bonds. Might as well be. He is the only real threat in the lineup. I'd bet any amount of money he gets the most intentional walks in the league by a lot.

  7. He likes meeting the players and getting autographs even if he doesn't know who they are. Tell him it's okay if he doesn't know who they are, because no one else does either.
  8. I always wondered, is his first name pronounced "Jeye" (rhymes with "eye") or Jay? Jay
  9. I understand wanting to root for 'your team' but the blind fandom and trust is so despicable I think Erick would defend the organization if they traded Stanton for a bucket of baseballs. Probably not. Although, for what it's worth, I probably won't be whining about it months later either. Erick, you are very knowledgable when it comes to baseball, but with all due respect, you trust this ownership group with a blindfold over your eyes and you're letting them take you for a ride. I'm not saying Loria doesn't care about winning, but he obviously cares more about money. They told the fan base that they were changing their business model when they got into the new stadium. He deceived them by reverting back to the old business model, the same model that has netted them ZERO playoff appearances. Now that they're in their own stadium, they've run out of excuses. There's no reason to have a rebuilding mode in a brand new ballpark. There's no excitement in that. I don't know about you, but some people work hard for their money and they don't want to pay to see a rebuilding team that features young players that either 1) won't pan out or 2) will be traded at some point for prospects. On top of that, the team's front office hasn't done anything to make people believe they can build a playoff caliber team, because they've had nearly a decade to do it and they've failed. The team is trying to be the Rays or the A's, but those teams are way smarter. You can keep putting your time/money into an organization that's making a mockery of baseball in South Florida. I won't.

  11. I can tell you I had a 20 game plan last year and I won't go to a single one this year. Had a full-81 game. No plans to go this year. Or next. Or any until Loria and Samson are long, long gone. the day they start winning again. Haven't won for a decade, probably won't win for another decade.
  12. Is the "official Marlins suck homepage" still around? Cause I'm thinking of joining.
  13. Season ticket sales will drop by at least 50% or more. They were going to take a major drop even without the payroll reduction. A lot of people bought partial plans last year in order to secure Opening Night tickets. Although that's true, it's just part of the reason, Admin. Alot of folks doubled up on their packages hoping to in the very least break even on the total, and are now at least dropping the double up portion. Alot are also dropping everything.Also, nbace has a point. StubHub prices were so low last year because of the over supply of paid tickets available. Heck, I had a hard time giving tickets away. I don't think it would be wise of anyone thinking they will get some $2 tickets for Opening Day. Our history shows Opening Day is a hot sell. Day 2 and beyond is another story. Yea, Opening Day is never cheap and even the worst of Marlins seasons (coming in 2013) will STILL be sold out. As much as our fans suck, there are still a LOT of baseball fans in SoFla that want a taste of opening day baseball. You may overpay for Opening Day as always but like you said, after that should be great... Did you just say...opening day will be sold out in 2013? LOL There were a few us us that did. Willing to bet we are all going by our history as a reference. And like we also said, it's Day 2 and beyond where the difference will be.The last time the Marlins had a fire sale (or "market correction") after 2005 they didn't sell out Opening Day the following season. Opening day '13 will be the Marlins biggest draw, and yes there will be a huge drop off, but I highly doubt opening day will be sold out considering the amount of dissent among the fan base after this most recent fire sale. There were 31,308 there which was a near sellout (remember not every seat at Sun Life was for baseball). Factor in the AC and the newer ballpark, it should sell out. Capacity for baseball in 06 was 36k+. So about 5000 unsold tickets. The newness of the park has already rubbed off for many people and the fan base is in shambles right now. I just don't see a sellout happening. We'll see.
