    As much as we all wanted to believe otherwise, we all should have known this is exactly how it was going to go down. Is it a surprise that Loria and Samson are repellent pieces of ****? Nope. This is what you expect from filthy **** faced goat****ers. Those two miserable ****ing turds and the corrupt political weasels royally ****ed over Miami. If this were a more just and civilized culture we would burn them at stakes. They stole our money. Destroyed a holy site. Pissed on the public trust. I'm not remotely surprised because this is who Loria and Samson are and have always been. Two of the most shameless criminals in this state's history. I kept saying this is how it was going to go down even though I really hoped it wouldn't.

    I've been a Marlins fan since day one. This might be the breaking point. I wouldn't mind folding the team. We had our run. Let's call this the end while we can still remember the good times. No more debacles and robbing a struggling city in the midst of a recession. But whatever happens Loria and Samson have to pay. There has to be some legal recourse against those criminal sons of whores. The city should be able to get together and string up old west style. Let Conine take a few swings at them. They have killed the Marlins. While that stadium will become an empty post modern ****hole haunted by the ghosts of the Orange Bowl.

    We're doomed until Bud Selig forces Loria out of baseball, ala Frank McCourt and the Dodgers.

    When he fired Guillen instead of his slave boy Samson, the writing was on the wall.

    I really wanted to go see a game at the new ballpark. Not anymore.

    I stopped caring about the Marlins and baseball on a whole a long time ago because of foolishness like this.

    Bets part is as a lifelong Jays fan, the 3 "top" prospects you guys got aren't even close to our top prospects. Thanks, Marlins!

    Lip Balm?

    I had Le Batard's show on when this story broke and none of them could conceal their disgust. Le Batard called it a betrayal. And Stugotz says "I can't wait to hear Samson try and spin this on the show tomorrow."

    It is disgusting. I can't even speak on this without becoming irate. And the reason why I become irate has little to do with the actual deal itself or baseball in general.

    Dan is 100% dead on. This is a mega-betrayal. These guys betrayed the great city of Miami and its tax payers who footed 80% of this stadium build. Now it's all for not. Even if Selig steps in and says no dice, the damage is done. Loria and Samson have urinated on the community. The tax paying citizens of Miami-Dade County were hoodwinked into paying for this stadium and weren't even given the option of paying to remodel the Orange Bowl.

    Now, we have this gorgeous $515M stadium out in the middle of Little Havana, and nothing to really show for it. All of this baseball stuff is secondary. I love the city of Miami. I love South Florida and this is all heart breaking.
