Cody Ross will not get Jeff Loria’s Ferrari

A tale as old as time:

Jeffrey Loria delivered a rah-rah speech inside the Marlins clubhouse the season before last in which he allegedly told players that he would give them his car — a red Ferrari – if one of them was voted MVP of the National League Championship Series.
Cody Ross was there for the speech, went on to win the the NLCS MVP, and now he’s been totally screwed out of the Ferrari. Man, that Loria . . . .
OK, there may be more to that. And, OK, Ross wasn’t on the Marlins when he did it, but really, Jeff Loria should really be forced to give up his Ferrari here.  I’ll talk to a couple of lawyers to see what we can do.

    Loria had the fineprint in his pocket.

    Although, if he actually DID give up the car, that’d be awesome.

    Rumor has it… It’s a kit car powered by a 1978 beetle engine anyway.

      My spies say it’s this one.

    After the way the Marlins poor mouthed the City of Miami into building that stadium he should be able to afford giving up that car. He and his GM had better put a better product on the field next season or there may be a lot of empty seats in that new stadium in 2112. South Florida only supports winners. Check out the all empty seats at the Dolphins and Panthers’ games.

      that new stadium in 2112
      Is that the stadium next to the Temples of Sphrynx?

        “XXXX”? Damn…what does that show that XXX doesn’t?!?

    Scrooge McLoria’s Ferrari will be stolen by that hulking clown with the tentacled alien worm hiding inside of him. No, not Ozzie Guillen, the one from the movie….

    It would be absolutely hilarious if Ross could somehow legally force Loria to turn the vehicle over to him…
    I mean, a promise is a promise…

      Never happen. Our legal system is ruled by an irresistibly symmetrical form of logic.

      • Utley's Hair - Nov 17, 2010 at 11:26 PM

        Legal system? Logic? Since when?

        Craig should “volunteer” his services to Ross to uphold that verbal contract—with all of the witnesses—for said Ferrari. (And by “volunteer,” I obviously mean for a nominal fee…like, say a joyride or two. 8) )

    What an owner lie to a player? It never happens, why the next thing you will tell me is that baseball agents lie to the press.

    • Utley's Hair - Nov 17, 2010 at 11:29 PM

      There’s a lot of interest out there for proof of your assertion of dishonesty by agents, sir!!
