Something Smells Fishy In Miami
According to Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald, the Marlins are about to re-sign outfielder Austin Kearns, but that’s not the most interesting item in his column.
It looks like high ranking Marlins executives including owner Jeffrey Loria have been avoiding the media since the middle of November.
Besides forbidding president David Samson from doing his radio show, Marlins owner Jeffrey Loria also told Samson that he can no longer do interviews.
That’s short-sighted, because Samson made himself more accountable and accessible than many team presidents, even amid unpopular decisions made solely by Loria.
Loria, by the way, has refused to speak to the media since mid-November.
I can’t believe MLB has allowed a media ban by the Marlins to go on this long. After soaking the taxpayers of Miami for millions upon millions of dollars to build them their new park and also promising a competitive team, they have a fire sale nine months later and refuse to face the music. That’s so bad.
