But you say, the Marlins never drew any fans in their old park and had a tiny payroll. How are they doing it?
Well they got the City of Miami to put up around $500 million for building their new park (about 80% of the total cost).
In a way, you could say they are paying these contracts with house (or should I say taxpayer) money and have around $150 million or so still left.
Hey, I heard Manny Ramirez was un-retiring....
PS: apparently even the clueless Feds at the SEC who couldn't lay a glove on Bernie Madoff for almost 20 years, think there is something fishy (yes!!!!) about the Marlins deal with Miami and are investigating.
