Is Florida Marlins Owner Jeffrey Loria the Worst Owner in Sports?

The Florida Marlins have had some major issues this year in terms of ownership and managers. The manager who shall remain nameless quit a few months ago, and now the Marlins just made a stunning move and sent Logan Morrison to the minor leagues.

I’m not sure what Jeffrey Loria and his goons are doing down there in Florida, but I suspect that they’re a big reason why the Marlins don’t draw anyone. Loria has been a train wreck since taking the team over, and makes poor move after poor move because well…he thinks he’s the man. Well Jeffrey Loria- you’re not the man. You’re a scumbag who pulled one over on the entire state to get you a new stadium. Does that feel good? Does that make you special in the worst economy of our life time? I’m glad you can sleep at night- must psychopaths can after screwing people left and right.

Let’s get back to the move regarding Morrison. REALLY? Hanley Ramirez has been a complete joke this year. Logan Morrison has been steady in the middle part of the lineup, has played banged up- tough kid. Still a young kid learning how to play this game at this level and frankly- he’s done an outstanding job in my opinion. You don’t like that he tweets Jeffrey Loria, so you send him to the minors? What the heck are you doing to your organization? What kind of message are you sending? You let young kids play through struggles when your a small market team. And your a small market team because you don’t want to do anything about that!

Logan Morrison is going to be an outstanding big league hitter over his career with a few all star appearances, and this is how you treat him? You might as well trade him now. The fact that you go out of your way to protect your whiny “super star” (Hanley Ramirez) and fire your OUTSTANDING manager over it- shows that you have no idea how to run a big league club.

That is why I’m personally going to nominate you as worst owner in sports. Congratulations on that Mr. Loria. You’re an outstanding addition to baseball, the state of Florida, and humanity in general.

    Good points. I also feel if anyone should have spent time in the minors this year Hanley should have been sent down a long time ago. If you pamper a princess a prima donna is exactly what you end up with. It’s like Tim Tebow say’s… Hard work beats talent when talent doesn’t work as hard… that’s Hanley Ramirez to a tee… and I’m quite tired of it. I hope Loria takes a good long look at himself in the mirror this offseason and realizes he made a mistake by babying his prize shortstop. His trade value isn’t even what it was a year ago after his poor performance and injury prone season.

    Logan keep your head up bro. You play the game the right way and the game will recognize this even if your current “superiors” don’t.

    This Marlins ball club has a lot of talent but the chemistry just doesn’t seem to be there for whatever reason. Hopefully a change of scenery from Sunlife will turn things around next season. Releasing Wes Helms was the right thing to do, demoting one of your young hard nose players was not. Wise up Jeffrey, you may have the cash but you can’t buy respect.

    Thanks for the comment.

    I absolutely agree with you.

    I wrote an article last august saying Han-Ram was the most over rated player in baseball. Frankly- I would trade him for a kings ransom as well. He had that attitude in Boston prior to the big trade- and it was never changed. I sincerely hope it does- but it likely wont.

    Jeffrey Loria is a scum bag. He’s not a real owner- he just enjoys the power. Seriously- he’s running the organization into the ground…quickly. He ran off Joe girardi- JOE GIRARDI! Because Joe told him to stop yelling at the home plate ump behind home plate. The guy is a cancer on his own right….think you guys could take Zambrano off our hands? haha.
