When the Miami Marlins moved into their new park in 2012, they went on a spending spree, bringing in former New York Mets and current Toronto Blue Jays shortstop Jose Reyes, among others.
However, that didn’t last. The Marlins quickly shipped off Reyes, shortstop Hanley Ramirez and several other players, effectively ending any effort to contend.
This offseason, the Marlins made more changes, which included the dismissal of their president of baseball operations, Larry Beinfest.
The Marlins won their second World Series title in 2003, but haven’t been back to the postseason since.
Marlins president David Samson addressed the changes on Thursday and also vowed to improve on the Marlins’ 62-100 record, the second-worst record in the MLB in 2013.
“We want to get out there and get going,” Samson told Christina DeNicola of Fox Sports Florida. “We’re getting ready for another season, and we’re going to win more. I promise you this: We’re not going to lose 100 games next year. Not close.”
We’re not going to lose 100!
Now there’s a slogan the whole city of Miami can get behind!
