OK so now I'm pissed.
On the same day, the Marlins -- oop, I mean Red Sox -- win the World Series and the New York Times reports that former Marlins manager of the year Joe Girardi is the leading candidate to take over the Yankees. Oh yeah and did I mention that Miami's own Mike Lowell was the World Series MVP. And then there's Josh Beckett.
Oh oh oh yeah, and then there was the news last week, that the Marlins don't want to pay as much to help build a new stadium by the Orange Bowl.
You can blame this whole mess on the fact that Marlins fans don't go to ball games -- or that the city didn't get it together to make a good stadium proposal by the bay, as it should have done in the first place...

But in the end, you gotta wonder if the Marlins management has the brains to hire geniuses of talent scouts (like the now departed Dave Dombrowski) why don't they have the strategic sense to match it? Be smart. Think long term.
So I have a suggestion. Sign Miami's own A-Rod. He's on the market!
