Jeffrey Loria=worst thing in pro sports

This guy sucks. He has run the Marlins into the ground, with the attendence numbers at a very embarrasing level. I feel so bad for the players on the team. Loria only cares about getting $ for himself.Now he is personally making boneheaded lineup changes. I feel sorry for fans and players of the Marlins.

The players are getting paid to play ball. It's the city that has to support this franchise that is feeling it. Miami is not known as a great sports town but this team is not AAA worthy.

Fernandez will be a free agent after six seasons. Had the Marlins stashed him in the minor leagues for the season's first 11 days – a time during which Fernandez made only one start – he would not have been eligible for free agency until 2019.


do they not a baseball man that can stand up to him?

This is not the first time Loria has tried to tinker with his team's on-field product. Loria, one source said, also made lineup suggestions to Ozzie Guillen, the team's previous manager. Guillen ignored them.

They need a manager like Guillen again. And by that I mean someone who has tenure and the guts to stand up to Loria and say NO.

Yes he is the worst owner in sports. He killed the Expos for which I shall never forgive and is doing the same to the Marlins now.

re: Jeffrey Loria=worst thing in pro sports
So by not stashing Fernandez in the minors he's elligible for free agency after 6 years and if they had put him in the minors he wouldn't be a free agent til 2019? Is my math that bad?

Can't believe that happened.

Oh, the article says until 2019, not after 2019.

I think Loria played Miami well. He got all kinds of financial support from the tax payers and could probably sell the franchise right now for a nice profit.

Easily worst sports town in America. It's not like this is happening in Boston or Dallas.

Blows my mind that since 1997, the city of Miami has 4 championships.

fricking makes me sick.

Up there with worst owners but the worst thing in pro sports is Bud Selig who, BTW, helped Loria in that Expo deal.
