I speculate that Bill Madden should STFU and pick on some other teams that you know, maybe haven't appeared to have tried to win in the past decade?
"And just as Wolff, his partner John Fisher and the Marlins' Loria are going to be looking for a way out from under their mounting losses, baseball can't afford to keep dumping revenue-sharing money into hopeless franchises. Like just about every other industry in this country right now, baseball is going to have to take stock of its situation and downsize. There are too many teams in baseball anyway and it makes no sense to continue operating them in places that can't or won't support them."
Of course he provides little to no basis for the statement that there are "too many teams in baseball", at least cite some monetary info. I don't think the Marlins can even lose money with the revenue sharing present in baseball as John Brattain of THT pointed out last year.
