How can there be a single person who still calls themselves a Marlins fan after the shit they’ve been through the past 20 years?

I always said regardless the two world series it would suck to sell everyone off, then buy big again and then do they same thing over again. I would hate to be a fan of that team. A world series isn't that important.

I agree. Every time you get remotely talented your owner spits in your face as a fan and dumps them all for the almighty dollar? Give me a 20 year period with a core of players and some moderate success over 18 years of absolute ineptitude /apathy and 2 titles. Having said that, I’d rather have been a White Sox fan the last 20 years than Tigers. They won a title, had some decent seasons sprinkled in, and had an owner that didn’t decimate their team every few years.

Since the Marlins have been in existence they have a 1870-2111 record and 2 WS championships. They were over .500 6 times. In that same time period the Tigers have a 1879-2100 record, no WS championships and over 0.500 9 times.

Last 20 Years

In excess of 2.5 Mil in Attendance

DET = 9 times
MIA = 0 times

In excess of 2.0 Mil in Attendance

DET = 15 times
MIA = 1 times

Without attendance, it is virtually improbable to have payroll where you can keep star players. Mike Stanton's contract was prohibitive when it was executed and doomed the Marlins if he stayed.

Keep in mind, most of this was done with Jeff Loria as owner. He did very similar things with Montreal Expos when he owned them.
