Miami Marlins fans have been eagerly awaiting the sale of the team since the beginning of the season. As we approach the All-Star game, nothing has changed.
Fans of the Miami Marlins baseball team have grown weary of hearing that their team is getting closer to being sold. As long as there have been reports that the team was up for sale, fans have been told that the execution of the sale was imminent.
Here we sit, 10 games away from the All-Star game in Marlins Park and the team is as far from a sale as ever. Or maybe one is right around the corner. It’s impossible to tell! There have been an astounding number of conflicting reports and misinformation.
The best way to proceed? No more media coverage until there is a new ownership group officially in place.
Of course, that isn’t going to happen. News stories about the impending sale regularly draw huge numbers of views and generate a lot of interest. As long as there is a thirst for them, expect the reports to come fast and furious. Even when there is nothing new to report.
Even this article, which is masquerading as an “anti-sale story story” will capitalize greatly on the desire to consume information about Jeffery Loria’s volunteer ousting.

The doesn’t change the fact that people are getting weary of reading the headlines. Derek Jeter and Jeb Bush bought this team months ago, remember? Then they didn’t have any money. Then Bush flipped, Jorge Mas entered the mix, and now a sale is likely to come by the end of the week.
Enough is enough for crying out corn. Let everyone know when there is some news. No more stories about nothing having changed.
What is being reported right now isn’t news. In a sense, it’s old’s.
How to rephrase your way to massive frustration and success!
For Miami Marlins fans, it’s wildly frustrating. Justified or not, nobody that consumes Miami baseball likes Jeffery Loria. As one of the baseball talent hotbeds of the country, professional baseball in Miami should be as successful a market as exists in baseball.
It isn’t. And Jeffery Loria plays a large role in that.
Ultimately, that’s what is being capitalized on here. Everyone is waiting for headline that says “SOLD!”, or “Loria sells team, admits he should have resigned Derek Lee“, something like that. Until something akin to one of those headlines comes to fruition, it’s just more noise in the news stream.
Understandably, each writer that covers the Miami Marlins wants to be the first to get the scoop. This is as big a story as the Miami Marlins will have for a number of years; potentially the end of an oppressive decade and a half of baseball.
But the desire to land the decisive blow and win the battle of page views and likes is coming at the cost of waning interest. Each story has been a rehash of another for the last month. People are still reading them, but with a begrudging grimace, rather than an piqued smile.
Everyone wants the team to be sold, but how many times can we read that “Jeffery Loria wants so-and-so dollars”? Super-group, Jorge Mas, Jeter is a broke millionaire. We get it. Wake me when the team is sold, and not a moment sooner.
