I've only posted here scarcely but I've been watching the Marlins for a long time now (since about 2006). I could go on an entire diatribe about my history as a Marlins fan, but w/e, not important. I noticed a lot of people on this board who said they were quitting being Marlins fans, jumping on the Rays wagon, which is completely asinine. The idea of switching allegiances when the goings get tough is foreign to me. All I know is the Jaguars and the Marlins (well, and Aston Villa). But at the same time, the way Loria conned the entire city on the false hope of AT LEAST being a mid-level spender only to blow it all up and become the bottom-feeders of the salary table before even an entire year had gone... even though I live in Jacksonville and didn't have to pay a single cent in taxes, as a sports fan, and more importantly, a human being and a citizen, I find it immoral to give even a penny of my money to the scumbags who run this team and, unfortunately, have no plans of selling.
However, like I said, I would never switch allegiances, but I've been so hurt by my club I can't go back... my undying loyalty has put me between a rock and a hard place, so much so that I've lost all interest in the game itself. I literally have no idea where Greinke and all the big name FAs signed, all the shifts in power amongst the divisions, etc. and to be perfectly honest, I couldn't care less. I've almost become antipathetic to the whole league. My love of our wonderful national past-time has eroded before my very eyes... and it really, really hurts because I know at the bottom of my heart that I still love the art of baseball, but I can't bring myself to embrace it when the Marlins I know and love are being held hostage by that f***ing scumbag and his step-son for the foreseeable future.
Edit: Wow, that title looks funny. I meant, "Has anyone else had their enthusiasm for baseball killed by the Marlins?"
