Disbanding the Marlins
The more I think of it, the angrier I get. Murray Chass knows baseball, but he certainly doesn't appreciate Florida (except probably during the month of March). This is what he wrote in Thursday's NYT: "If the Florida teams sank in Florida's waters, Major League Baseball wouldn't miss them." He says MLB blew an opportunity six years ago when it voted to disband two teams -- it should have picked the Marlins and the Rays then. Well, Murray, here's two numbers to consider: 1997 and 2003. What two numbers can the Mets give us? Or perhaps we should institute a rule that any team that annually leads the MLB in salary and can't win a World Series in seven years should be disbanded?
