MIAMI (AP) - The attendance-challenged Miami Marlins have antagonized fans again by deciding a low-budget team is good enough for their new ballpark.
A blockbuster trade sending three stars to Toronto could save Marlins owner Jeffrey Loria $150 million, which prompted a backlash from South Floridians angered by the team's latest payroll purge.
Miami traded All-Star shortstop Jose Reyes, left-hander Mark Buehrle and right-hander Josh Johnson as part of the deal, which awaited final approval Wednesday pending physicals for the players. The trade sent several of the Blue Jays' best young players to Miami, but that wasn't enough to mollify Marlins fans.
From this year's opening night lineup, only two players remain - Giancarlo Stanton and Logan Morrison.
