    The Marlins killed my fandom and developing love for baseball after the 2nd World Series win in 2003. I haven't cared about the team or the sport much since then. I refuse to invest my time and emotions into them. They run the team based on profitability only. Nothing wrong with making money, but if you're not truly trying to build something and win, then it's a waste of my time. Miami deserves a competent ownership team. That stadium did cost quite a lot to build, for one. They've also been teasing gullible Marlins fans for a long time now. Enough is enough.

    I'm still a Marlins fan after all of the years of craziness, and am overjoyed at the prospect of a new ownership group. :up:

    Kinda wish the new ownership group would simplify that ridiculous multicolor M logo they have now, but I think that ship has sailed for the next decade or so.

    That is borderline exciting news. It will be interesting to see Jeter's involvement.

    Same here. The fire sale after 2003 was it for me.

    Should be the Marlin's owner made me dislike baseball. I hate that prick for what he's done over the years and am thrilled about having new management ... any new management.

    I use to go to the games and even played a round of charity golf with Rene Lachemann the first manager back in the 90's.

    The long nightmare is almost over!!!

    Hopefully Jeb will be a better owner than he was a governor. But then again, Loria and his pipsqueak son in law set such a low watermark that it would be hard for him to be worse. Jeter's BB smarts hopefully will translate into oversight and that he plays the major role in club operations.

    The fact that Loria makes out like a bandit doesn’t really phase me. He’s gone. He’s ****ing gone and can’t ruin Miami sports anymore. This is a day of celebration.

    I'm interested to see how much the ownership is divvied up by, especially for Jeter

    If it's a Marc Anthony/J-Lo/Fergie thing and they own a fraction of a percent of the team, then what does it matter beyond name recognition?

    Regardless, I'm glad Jeffery Loria is getting gone.

    It sound like it a total sell not just celebrity window dressing Adam. Hope so.

    Loria basically turned a 12M investment in the Expos into $1.3B. That's nauseating. The worst owner in sports was basically given two different franchises and ran both into the ground while turning an absurd profit.

    I don't care much for baseball but I will say this about the current owner. At least he got that team out of the Dolphins stadium.

    No, the tax payers of Miami paid for that stadium. Loria put up less than 20% of the cost.

    The joke of that is that the value of that stadium he did not pay for increases his net worth substantially by increasing the value of the team. So he gets to sell the Marlins now and be paid the value of a stadium that was given to him by the tax payers.

    Corporate welfare, how does it work?

    According to Barry both Bush and Jeter plan on being very involved with the team.

    I don't care who paid for it. It happened under his ownership so that means he is the one who wanted a new stadium. Credit goes to him and his underlings for getting the city to pay for it. Either way I am glad they are gone.

    I am wondering who footed the majority of the bill. Bush and Jeter do not have close to a billion dollars.

    They are the marquee names but it's probably a group of investors that want to remain anonymous some of whom could piss a billion buck.
