The Remaining Marlins Are Confused

Last year at this time, the Miami Marlins had a new stadium, a new skipper and with the addition of some high priced free agents...a new lease on life.

This off season...well, not so much.

After seemingly trading away most of their biggest names, it's almost as if the team is trying to take a Mulligan on the 2012 season. And, naturally, those left behind took to Twitter to voice their concerns.

Slugger Giancarlo Stanton was upset.

Pitcher Ricky Nolasco was bewildered. 

And, the always outspoken Logan Morrison, well, after his bath...dude was worried that the team unloading Jose Reyes, Josh Johnson, Mark Buehrle and others to the Toronto Blue Jays might take away from him being named on some fictional "Players You'd Most Like to Party With" list.

I guess we all grieve differently, but it makes sense.

Also mentioned in the Bleacher Report piece...Grant Balfour, Matt Kemp, Tim Lincecum and Derek Jeter NOT Yunel Escobar, Henderson Alvarez or Jeff Mathis.

Luria was right to unload all those bumps, making a lot of money, "our money" the fans money and not producing, let's get young talent, sell the team and go on.
