Who can tell you the positive in getting your butt whipped every night? The silver lining in missing playoffs?
Marlins owner Jeffrey Loria, and his optimistic view what’s to come, that’s who.
Tough to find the “well at least…” in a seemingly lost 2012 campaign. A season that began with promise, is winding up a face-shielding disappointment.
Times have been difficult awhile now for the Marlins fan, and you can count on a long September to boot.
Look on the bright side.
At least you’re not a New York Yankees fan. Watching your owner mindlessly spend millions hand-over-fist for the latest, well-equipped toys in free agency. Making the playoffs as an afterthought, anything less than the World Series, an utter failure.
Despite all that East Coast bravado and endless sense of entitlement that comes with being a fan of the Yanks, I think we’ll pass for now, thanks.
Florida management has worked tirelessly to earn the success they’ve had over the years. Back-to-back-to-back all-nighters hard.
Two World Series championships in 14 years of existence thanks to pinpoint scouting efforts and careful personnel decision-making with one eye always on the big picture.
It’s the Marlins way, and something for those who bleed teal to take pride in.
Marlins owner Jeffrey Loria, or Mr. Brightside, is optimistic for 2012 and focused on doing whatever it takes to bring yet another WS trophy back to South Florida (more on this developing story to come.)
Some of the best young talent in Marlins history, Mr. Brightside looking to make an off-season splash, and the grand opening of brand new Sun Life Stadium.
As it turns out, 2011 wasn’t the year it could have been but the future’s glare has the squinting Marlins faithful reaching for a pair of shades.
