If the Florida Marlins never win another game, they will already have won too many. This weekend came the latest episode in the baseball version of a "scorched earth policy" usually done as an army retreats in defeat and humiliation. The man orchestrating this operation, Marlin owner and pyramid king of South Florida, H. Wayne Huizenga, has produced another Blockbuster Deal worthy of a man who began his career in trash and is now selling used cars. The only difference here is that Wayne is scorching the earth in victory, and then producing the defeat and humiliation.
