 JUPITER, Fla. (AP) - Miami Marlins owner Jeffrey Loria's three-day public relations campaign to patch things up with angry fans has brought him to spring training.
Loria conducted an interview session Tuesday that included several testy exchanges before the owner cut it short. He reiterated previous comments regarding the 2012 payroll purge, saying it wasn't about money but about improving the farm system.
Fans are upset that after only one season of big spending in a new ballpark built with contributions from tax dollars, the Marlins have reverted to their tight budgets of the past.
This year's payroll is expected to be less than $45 million, compared with $90 million in 2012. Loria denied that he reneged on any promise, noting the Marlins finished last in the NL East with their biggest payroll ever.
