The joke is on us: Jeffrey Loria has his stadium and dumps his star players - David J. Neal - MiamiHerald.com

The problem with this analogy is that Darth Vader actually had some good in him.

Now, as the Marlins deal pitchers Josh Johnson, Mark Buerhle and their best position player, Jose Reyes, to finish a roster cutdown that began at midseason, I can identify it as the sinister belly laugh of a sentient Death Star-like construct.

“My master, Lord Loria, merely dangled a few promises before you to fool you into helping to create me! Now, the mighty tractor beam of my debt will suck the money from your present and future pockets as you slave while I make Lord Loria ever richer and more powerful! BWAAAA-HA-HA-HA!”

I thought Stanton was thier best position player... is it even close?

When I glanced over it, I had the same thought. "The Marlins traded Stanton, too? Oh..."
