30 Clubs in 30 Days, Day 27 - Miami Marlins

The Marlins have probably had two of the most obnoxious owners in recent MLB history - Wayne Huizenga and Jeffrey Loria (dishonorable mention goes to the late Marge Schott, who owned the Reds from 1984 to 1999). Huizenga is more remembered for immediately dismantling the 1997 championship Marlins team following the World Series than actually being the owner of a championship team. Meanwhile, Loria destoyed the Montreal Expos and almost did the same to the Marlins until the City of Miami and the County of Miami-Dade finally agreed to help finance a new stadium, Marlins Park, which will open its doors for its first MLB game next week.
