Quote:
Rookie manager Mike Redmond delivered the news to Nolasco about 2½ hours before the first game against the Minnesota Twins, and it did not go over well with him or his teammates. Standard protocol for doubleheaders is that veterans choose which game they want to pitch. Not only did Loria ignore that and further alienate Nolasco, the Marlins' highest-paid player who has previously requested a trade, he sabotaged Redmond less than 20 games into his managerial career.

By overstepping boundaries no other owner in baseball would dare, Loria presented Redmond with a Catch-22: listen to the man who signs his paycheck and risk drawing the players' ire, or refuse to kowtow to Loria's requests and find himself at the mercy of the owner's short fuse.

Loria is like if you gave an internet troll millions of dollars and a professional baseball team. He just trolls his own players and fans and staff and then tells them to get out of if they don't like it.

He ruined one cities baseball dreams (Montreal) and now is doing the same in south Fla. And Bud Selig does nothing. Makes McNutting look pretty good... :roll: :roll: :roll:

The fraud for the stadium is borderline criminal. FG had an article about them having the biggest year 2 dropoff in attendance in recent history of new ballparks.

He is alos killing the value of his best asset (Stanton) by running a AA team out there. Stanton has seen the lowest % of pitches in the strike zone of any MLB player thus far.
