I think Miami will be far better than most think, as will the Astros. A massive rebuild, what I usually refer to as "starting over" has proven to work just as well as any other. Sure, you might "only" win 50-60 games instead of 70, but they both get you the same place, nowhere. The Pirates have avoided doing that, and finally bit the bullet (relax, no one was harmed by using that analogy) 2-3 years ago, and the results have been nearly immediate, as they just missed a .500 campaign last season.
Mark A has said he doesn't think it would work on a business level in Milwaukee, but those that think it dooms a team to failure for several years is ignoring history. Look, I love the fact the Brewers have had a competitive team for the past six years, a success cycle like that is really all you can hope for as a small market team.
That said, when the day comes that they win fewer games and likely draw smaller crowds, I'll be the first to say I'll probably attend more games. I don't like big crowds, a packed parking lot, or long lines. I have no doubt we'll see lower attendance in Miami, but we'll also see a more intelligent crowd, and in a couple seasons, many people will say, "I can't believe Miami is good again so soon."

Whatever strikes me as
interesting, and serious Milwaukee Brewers thoughts. If you are a believer
in respecting OBP, throwing strikes, and keeping the ball in the park,
you may have found the place you've been searching for. I believe in low taxes, small government, and am not afraid to be labeled patriotic.
