tldr pls

 

Hm

 

Loria meddled.

 

Would've sold the team to Mas, but he didn't get the financing together/wasn't close to the Jeter offer - thought a local owner would've been better.

 

He said the Marlins nearly traded Jose Fernandez to Arizona before the 2016 season.  The proposed 5-for-1 trade with Arizona would have sent pitcher Patrick Corben, third baseman Brandon Drury and center fielder AJ Pollock, among others, to the Marlins.

This one is pretty entertaining. But yea that firing of the 4 special assistants last year was still a total fuck up on Jeter's part. It's one thing to decide that a high ranking employee is out and his people are out too... that's normal in an ownership change... but this people weren't random people in relation to the organization so getting rid of them was stupid and even worse was the way it was done. Definitely could and should have been handled better.

Had Arizona done the deal, Jose may be alive right now. He wouldn't have been in the water in Arizona. Definitely wouldn't have been on the boat that night, but I guess it could've happened in the off-season anyway.

Arizona also may not have turned a blind eye to Fernandez doing literally whatever he wanted like apparently the Marlins did.

He's being a bit of a smart ass but I'm totally on board with Mish now after definitely giving him some shit over the years. His reports that nobody else says come out of left field and he looks to be the one wrong at first but time after time he gets proven right and this is a big one. It's almost like if Mish has different and better sources than everyone else. Whatever it is the guy has great info even if he's the only one who has it. I'm a believer.

I mean Scoop has Mike Hill as his only source.

 

The writers for the local rags dont even try.

 

Mish tries and pretty much utilizes anyone not named Mike Hill.  

 

Credit to Mish.  

 

Everyone else mostly sucks or regurgitates whatever they are told from the one or two people they hear something from if they even try.
