Go, Agent Ned! Do your work!

As for the Marlins, this is just the latest piece of evidence in the case of the prosecution that Jeffrey Loria is the Single Worst Professional Sports Franchise Owner on Earth.

Here's some more:

Marlins Park financing:

Miami-Dade County $376.3 million
City of Miami $132.5 million [a]
Miami Marlins $125.2 million
Cost $634 million

As one story notes, "Meanwhile, word spread about expensive commissions for works by some of Loria’s favorite artists inside the new stadium, including $2.5 million taken from the county’s Art in Public Places department for a Red Grooms sculpture behind center field."

The prosecution rests.
Marlins current payroll pre-arbitration next year, $16 million.
