Finance/Economics: According to Forbes magazine, the Marlins are the second-least valuable baseball franchise ($136 million vs. the Expos $113 million) and the team lost $14 million in 2002. This is the kind of loss teams like the Cubs and Braves claim, but in the Marlins case it is actually true. The Marlins likely have the worst stadium deal in baseball (paying rent to the man who raped them, H. Wayne Huizenga), the worst TV deal (outside of the Expos), and, as a chaser, no one goes to their games (29th in attendance last year, and they had to cheat to get that).
