Another year, another plan! The Marlins are going to cut payroll. From the same article that brought us the Loria-Gonzalez dustup:
After going “all in” this season with a franchise-record $95 million roster payroll, the Miami Marlins will likely scale back in 2013 to a more moderate figure, somewhere in the $70 million to $80 million range, sources said.
Multiple sources said the team lost money this season due largely to a high payroll and lower-than-anticipated attendance at the new ballpark. As a result, the Marlins will not be repeating last year’s buying binge, when they spent more than $190 million on free agents.
You know the mark of a solid organization: doing something different every single year.
