      You should do a rewind of the 2017 astros, winning a championship while Houston was recovering from Harvey and their playoff run

    1) The origins of how Gary Sheffield became the angry Black man of the era.....!
    2) Why Wayne Huizenga was never brought up on charges of creating false records.......!
    3) Why the iconic Derek Jeter decided to own this franchise is beyond me!

        To be fair, the Marlins won that ‘97 World Series courtesy of Jose Mesa blowing Game 7

          I'm realizing if they kept that 97 roster together, maybe they could've stopped the Yankee dynasty in the next 3 years and kept that fanbase starving like every other instead of becoming the Evil Empire again

            Crazy how the management prevented them from becoming a dynasty.

                  Funny thing is (at around 6:20) that the Marlins probably had an insurance policy on Alex Fernandez... so the Marlins ownership likely paid even less than $13-million in payroll for the year!

                      A little insight as to why there are no fans attending games for the Marlins. Add the Florida Panthers to that for similar reasons. Bad ownership is the franchise history of these two franchises.

                              So, Floridians, you suddenly forgot the 2008 Tampa Bay Devil Rays! Tell me, when will they get a baseball-only stadium that's actually in Tampa Bay and not that Trop crap in St. Petersburg they currently call home? Don't worry, I'll wait....🇵🇷🌎🤣

                                Hate the fact that a nothing franchise that nobody cares about like the Marlins beat a long suffering team like the Indians

                                  No mention of Eric Gregg essentially handing them game 6 of the 1997 NLCS.

                                    And they did it again, once Jeter took over. Traded Stanton, Yelich, Ozuna and Gordon for nothing.

                                          Marlins beat my Indians that year. That one still hurts. But man thise Marlins were loaded too. And that Braves pitching staff. Man. Legendary.

                                              Dombrowski is only exceptional at 'win now screw the future' GM'ing. See: Florida and Detroit and soon: Boston.

                                                The 2003 Marlins won the WS because they had the GOAT Miguel Cabrera.

                                                  From a business/ROI/P&L standpoint, I UNDERSTAND why he did it, but it was so short-sighted... Huizenga.

But leading up to the world series, attendance was really solid. This really does seem like a case where poor ownership led to disenchanted fans.

They dont have the ticket sales like the redsox or yankees so yes business wise it does make sense to dismantle the team at least short term. long term dismantling of a team dirties a brand and eventually you lose fans. The 2019 Marlins are prime example. Empty stadium all season
