stingy marlins

Don't get me wrong here, I think it doesn't make sense that most owners do not make as much profit as top baseball stars earn in salaries...but I think the Marlins situation is absurd. They will be fielding a team that has a good chance of not even topping a 10mil payroll. I think it's time MLB establishes a salary floor. It doesn't have to be high, but it has to at least make the Marlins "dumping" salary, especially as they can certainly afford any salary increases.
Heck they could have afforded to have signed Cabrera to a long term deal (I think their net profit was over 45mil last yr) as well as sign an extra player or two and make a run for NL East title.
