This video was very weird. No mention of the fact that we almost lost baseball when Loria bought the team and Henry got his upgrade to Boston . There was also virtually no mention of how the team was put back together by Beinfest other than Miggy and Beckett, or how Henry also gave up on Florida like Huizenga did when he also was denied his stadium. To be honest, even though Loria is rightly reviled here, it must be said that we still have Major League baseball (well, a bunch of kids who may be good some day) because Loria chose to save us rather than stay in Montreal. When Henry was getting the upgrade, Loria was given a choice - you can keep the team in Montreal and we'll move the Marlins to Washington, or you can have the Marlins and we'll move the Expos to Washington. So, thanks, Jeff!

I don't see how they can say 2003 was an accident. I mean they signed Pudge and picked up Pierre in the off-season, they had at the time an ace in Burnett and it looked like future aces in Penny and Beckett to go along with established starters throughout the infield. It's been awhile but I remember thinking they could contend.  Also the video doesn't give Dombrowski enough credit for reassembling and restocking the team after the fire sale, he's the one who picked up Lee, Lowell, Penny and Burnett in trades and drafted or signed Beckett, Castillo, Cabrera and Gonzalez. Beinfest did his part too, but I think Dombrowski put the nucleus of the team together.

He 100 percent did.
