The Miami Marlins just signed former New York Mets shortstop Jose Reyes to over a $100 million dollar contract and it looks like the Marlins are not done yet either. Could
Albert Pujols be next. It looks like the Marlins are really trying to make themselves a contender, challenging the Philadelphia Phillies for the NL East in 2012.
The amazing thing about the Miami Marlins is that they do not get really any fans support down in Miami. The Marlins play in front of 5,000 to 10,000 fans for home games. Where are the Marlins getting all this money to sign Reyes and possibly next Pujols. There are rumors that the SEC is investigating the Marlins for something to do with the new baseball stadium down in Miami. Something is definitely not kosher in Miami that is for sure.
How are the Miami Marlins not only able to sign Reyes but how in the world are they able to sign possibly Pujols. I am sure they are getting some of the luxury tax that for example the Yankees pay every year. The Marlins have traded high price players. Where are the Marlins hiding this money. The baseball commissioner needs to do his job. Like always he will just ignore this. Is the integrity of the game being compromised. It all needs to be looked into because something is not right here. If the Marlins sign Pujols it totally needs to be looked into....

Like Boomer and Carton just mentioned, they are projecting profits due to the new stadium.

Correct. They figure two hispanic primetime players playing in an all-hispanic neighborhood (Little Havana) is going to yield big profits with a stadium that can shield itself from Miami's irregular weather.
