Jeff Loria thinks a lot of things, of course. Here he is talking to Joe Capozzi of the Palm Beach Post before his Fish got shut out for the second straight game:
“It’s great baseball. It’s the beginning of a new era for us and it’s exciting,’’ Loria said before the Marlins lost 3-0 to Washington on Wednesday, the team’s second consecutive shutout to open the season. “People will look back two years from now and say, ‘They did the right thing.’”
If the Marlins are winning two years from now they will talk about good players and baseball games. They will not say a damn thing about Loria or his decision making. Because he is so odious an owner he has foreclosed the possibility that even success will be met with praise. Really, he is the worst owner in sports.
The only thing Marlins fans will ever thank Loria for is if he goes into a year or two’s worth of media invisibility. Even if they want to like this team, his presecene surrounding it will make it that much harder. For the good of the franchise, he cannot be its face. He needs to retreat into silent ownership.
