WTF are the Marlins doing??


I'm not a Marlins fan, but those dudes are up to something and it's not good.

Any fish fans here have any light to shine on why they just traded half their team?

The Marlins spent $111.5 million to win 69 games last year. They'l spend about $75 million less, and likely win a similar number of games.

They do this every time they win the world series. Only problem is this time they didn't win the world series.

No, they actually had a pretty low payroll in 2003. Beckett and Willis just dominated that year

mother fricking this

The way those contracts are backloaded is fricking pathetic, and truly shows what they're plan was as they were, "spending to win"...

Marlins gonna Marlin.

They do this every few years. The last couple times just happened to be after winning the World Series.
