Loria is, bar none, the worst owner in all of sports.
How he's allowed to own a team after what he's done is despicable.
Who effing cares?
Let it go folks..
Ha ha ...
I love this guy. Loria that is. He's my new favorite person in the world. A man who can fool an entire city - or did the state of Florida help? - into building him a new stadium and then pretend to spend millions upon millions of $'s on a good team, dump the team and then make millions of $'s for doing absolutely nothing is pure brilliance.
I really wish I could find a business where all I had to do was own the business and I'd make a huge profit just for putting a bad product on the market.
My history on these guys isn't that great.
I think I recall one of my co-workers saying something about that. He owned the Expos just before they collapsed and MLB had to take over?
Ha ... MLB gets what it deserves for letting him own again.
Yeah , he was given/traded the Marlins , because when the expos moved to dc ( nationals ) they did not want him in charge of the DC market.
And yes they do
Alderson said the Mets never made an official offer to Reyes, who is coming off a deal that paid him $32.4 million over five years.
No after the league didn't contract the team it looked for a better venue to operate in where a new owner would be easier to come by. Than they moved. Having Loria not run the team was not a factor. Except maybe in your imagination.
And I know that a formal offer was not made to Reyes but his agent did know how much the Mets were willing to pay. I don't know if his agent checked back with Sandy before they signed but any good agent should have done that.
"Alderson said the Mets never made an official offer to Reyes, who is coming off a deal that paid him $32.4 million over five years."
Correct, he said he never made an "official" offer.
