The Miami Marlins are conducting another one of their infamously appalling fire sales, having already traded away half their team during the 2012 MLB season, with basically the rest going to the Toronto Blue Jays this week. With very few players remaining on the team who even makes more than six figures per year, it seems as if it is only a matter of time before they trade their highest paid player still on the roster, starting pitcher Ricky Nolasco.
If you look at who the Marlins have dealt over the past five or six months, it is quite disgusting how team owner Jeffrey Loria once again duped the fans and fleeced the taxpayers. During the season, Miami traded Hanley Ramirez, Omar Infante, Anibal Sanchez, Gaby Sanchez, Randy Choate and a few other piece players. Immediately after the season, Heath Bell was sent packing. And just this week, the Marlins dealt Jose Reyes, Josh Johnson, John Buck, Mark Buehrle and Emilio Bonafacio.
