We also know that the upstart Marlins have not paid their dues, many have not played the requisite 250 seasons and have not struggled coming up through the approved farm team. To add insult to injury, the Marlins drafted a crotchety old manager with questionable pedigree who went out into the market and cobbled together an inferior team that nobody said would win.
I am speechless, the deserving long-suffering we-have-always-done-the-right-thing Cubbies have been beaten by a Johnny-come-lately expansion team, with a know-it-all manager of dubious background. How could it happen? What about the 250 seasons? Does nobody care about the future of baseball or protecting the fans from a team that would place winning above fan protection? And what what about the 250 seasons, there ought be a law!
For us, in the Home Inspection profession the parallels are obvious. Not always does the best team win, sometimes it is the team that has the most talent coupled with a little luck. Go Marlins!
