This, folks, is not good. This isn’t the line for the DMV or to catch the matinee showing of “Fun Size”. No, this is what the line looked like 25 minutes before single-game tickets for the Miami Marlins 2013 season went on sale. This is what dumping $146.5 million in salary gets you one year after a brand new stadium opens built on the backs of taxpayers. The unfortunate thing is, the steep dive back into the attendance abyss for the Marlins will work to their advantage. Paring back salary at the detriment of attendance really is about cutting the margins down, and therefore, as in years past, the Marlins will profit by living off welfare. Dear Commissioner Selig, is the way to let one club tarnish the rest of the league?
