So the Marlins have done that thing again where they rip their team apart.
They used to do it after winning a World Series. This time they’re doing it after winning a new stadium from local taxpayers. One was a win for everyone; the other is just a win for owner Jeffrey Loria. See the difference? It’s subtle.
Last season, with a brand-new stadium, the Marlins drew an average of only 73.2 percent of capacity. How can they expect to draw any fans to see what will surely be a team even worse than last year’s 69-93 outfit? Here are 11 possible marketing slogans.
