Re: MLB Thread 2012
Really I don't care what the return is. Loria sold plans for the stadium on a whole re-branding of the franchise. Changed the name, uniforms, spent some money and it lasted a whole half-season. I could justify the Hanley and Anibal trades because there was talent that came back and while talent may have come back in this deal its clearly not the intention of the franchise to put a winning product out.
They've traded their starting C, 2B, SS, 3B, CF, and starters #1-3 since the trade deadline.
