Another back-loaded contract from the Marlins — they did this with Carlos Delgado in 1995 and then traded him to the Mets after the first year …. there is no way that the Marlins will maintain high attendance levels at the new ballpark and when the fans flee, I wonder who will be paying those back-end years ….
