The Florida Marlins Winning the World Series Forever...

What the hell am I talking about? The Marlins suck. And their payroll this year is like $22.50! They ain't winning shit. Well, they're out to a decent start... but seriously, there's no way they're going to sustain it in a division full of teams with money to spend and more talent.

What I'm talking about is... the fucking list of players they've dealt off in the last 5 years. This topic came up a couple of days ago in a sort of accidental conversation and we wound up running off a list of Marlins players to leave via Free Agency or get traded.

Just for shits and giggles, lets take guys on their current roster plus the guys who've been allowed to leave and see what kind of team we'd have.

C - Ivan Rodriguez, Paul Lo Duca
1B - Derek Lee, Mike Jacobs
2B - Luis Castillo, Dan Uggla
3B - Mike Lowell
SS - Hanley Ramirez
LF - Miguel Cabrera (he played here before he started hacking it up at 3rd)
CF - Juan Pierre
RF - Jeremy Hermida

SP - Josh Beckett, Dontrelle Willis, A.J. Burnett, Brad Penny, Scott Olsen

60-Day Disabled List - Carl Pavano

Yes, I completely realize that without giving up Lowell and Beckett, there's no Hanley. And that Pudge and Lo Duca kind of suck now. And Luis Castillo walks with a limp. Whatever.

This team, especially the pitching staff, would win the NL East by 20 fucking games every year. It's actually really fucking disgusting that a shitty, cheap, profiteering cocksucker of an owner is allowed to repeatedly ruin a team and hold an entire city hostage for a ballpark... especially after the same profiteering cocksucker did the SAME FUCKING THING in Montreal on the way to having their city stripped of the right to having a baseball team.

Jeffrey Loria should be fucked by a gorilla. Or at least eaten by bears.
