John Henry is the only reason Wayne Huizenga isn't considered the worst Marlins owner, and Henry and Huizenga are the only reasons Jeffrey Loria isn't considered the worst Marlins owner.

Jerk comes in touting his local ties, does nothing about the lease terms, promises a stadium, then abandons the team amid the contraction talk. Which is why for all the mess Loria has got into in recent years, at least Loria picked up of the team, fought Selig on contraction, took modest losses in 2003-05 and kept the club competitive. Loria is granted a small bit respect while Henry is considered a jerk.
