Except that everyone believes that Red Sox will, in the future, reinvest money back into baseball operations. I do not think anyone is upset about the trade from a baseball prospective. Its actually a pretty good trade for the Marlins.

The Marlins will continue to do the same thing they've done in the past, an approach that has actually proven pretty successful. This is a non-issue, it should and will pass.

Loria is definitely an issue.

I don't blame him for any of this. I'm just impressed by how well he worked everything to his advantage, taking advantage of elected officials, short-sighted businessmen, and a system that rewards the kind of behavior that might seem despicable but is impossibly profitable. When it comes to Jeffrey Loria, I'm just in awe.

Loria is a businessman and treats his team as such (no differently than Rogers or many other professional sports owners). He's just far more obvious about it.

Full-time CF gig? Potential single category goldmine steal (2 if you respect the .300 avg)? Swiped 37 bags in 130 G last season in Philly. Potential for 40+ in Miami, or should we expect those numbers to fall back to the 27 range he put up in Chicago?

One thing that's nice is he's super durable, and you can count on him for 150+ G of health, more than likely. Having 650 AB of .300+ AVG, 30 - 40 SB, and possibly 90 or so R that will almost assuredly come dirty filthy cheap could be nice.

Pierre couldn't find work this time last year. He's still a huge minus on a real team. This obviously isn't meant to fix any of their problems, but depending on who's PT he ends up stealing, it could hurt more than help.

A businessman who looks at short-term profit versus long-term value.
If it's obvious it's probably true.
