Did I write it? I've already given my rant opinion on the front boards on that whole debacle, but was there supposed to be a link to the article included perchance?

I haven't read the phantom article, but I've lived in the Miami area for the last 7 years and have had a front row seat to the baseball debacle down here. Selig deserves a hell of a lot more of the blame than he's getting right now. If nothing else comes of it, at the least I think it's going to be quite a long time until Miami attracts any star free agents, and the way that they handle things may cause problems with getting their own guys to re-sign.

Is this the article you speak of?

I just don't understand why baseball allows such a shitty owner in Miami. With the sheer number of latin/caribbean immigrants you would think Selig would want someone like the Dodgers group/Steinbrenners/etc... down there to continue to pump baseball into that part of the world.

We should send Crane Kenney to Miami. He could straighten them out.

I think my favorite part of this whole debacle is that Jeffrey Loria ate all by himself at lunch at the Winter Meetings:

If you think abiout it, the Cubs and Marlins are the absolute polar opposites in major league baseball. If MLB were a corporation, and the Cubs and Marlins were employees:

Cubs: Middle aged, hard worker. He watches all of his colleagues pass him on their way up the latter. God knows he tries. he's good enough to keep his job, but not good enough to advance, and he's beginning to accept it. He just hopes he can survive until retirement.

Marlins: The wunder-kind. He's all or nothing. Straight out of college, he took the short road to the top. As soon as things arent going his way, he throws a fit and shuts down. However, he always manages to pull himself up and dust himself off, racking up promotions.
