Mike Redmond’s job may be in doubt, after Loria’s genius remarks

Before the Marlins’ game in Citizens Bank Park, Marlins owner Jeffrey Loria visited the office if Mike Redmond on Tuesday.
Afterwards he expressed his feelings to reporters: “We’ve got to win games. Period.” What a brilliant mind this man has….

We’ve got to win games….. Duh!!! Isn’t that the goal of every team? But who is responsible for the crappy team that is on the field right now? Redmond? I don’t think so. Sorry mr. Loria, but if you spend $375 million on one player and get some over the hill veterans next to a bunch of players that is hardly MLB material, what do you expect?

It becomes clear that you lack any vision. First you refuse to spend money on a team for years. After you get you publicly funded stadium, all of a sudden you find the money that you said you never had and when the team that you bought doesn’t perform, you hold a fire sale again. One would think that people would learn from the mistakes that the Yankees made in the eighties. But not you. Do you really think that you can just buy a winner? It takes time to build a team. For years you were too greedy to spend money on your team as a part of your policy to blackmail the city of Miami/Dade County. In that period your farm system stockpiled talent. Normally a club with vision uses that talent to build a team. The holes in the lineup can be filled with free agents.

Of course it is easier to blame a manager instead of to look at yourself. You are the one who is responsible for acquiring the players. If the crapshoot that you bought does not perform, do not blame the manager. He has to work with the material that YOU are giving to him.

It appears that you have asked Mets Triple-A (Las Vegas 51s) manager Wally Backman if he is willing to step in. If he does, I already feel  sorry for him because it will be a lost cause anyway.

I see some similarities between you and George Steinbrenner, the late owner of the Yankees. Maybe you can hire Jeff  Torborg again, like Steinbrenner did with Billy Martin.

I have said it once and I say it again: You’re a disgrace for baseball.
