  • I disagree. Loria turned a profit of over $45 million dollars last year… more than 50% higher than that of any other team in MLB.

Yes, he sometimes will splurge on a superstar-type player… but that’s not how to build a real team fans can get behind. You need depth in the rotation and bull-pen, and Loria is too cheap and short-sighted to make these necessary additions.
