The Miami Marlins, led by owner Jeffrey Loria, have been one of the MLB teams who have taken a big step back during the 2012-13 offseason.
Loria and Marlins president David Samson created quite a stir earlier this month when they traded Jose Reyes, Josh Johnson and Mark Buehrle to the Toronto Blue Jays in what amounted as a monumental salary dump.
The Marlins are not the only team who project to be heading in the wrong direction for 2013.
The Los Angeles Angels will have to decide whether or not to bring back Zack Greinke—as well as finding a replacement for Torii Hunter, who departed this offseason to the Detroit Tigers via free agency.
The world champion San Francisco Giants will also have to figure out whether or not they would like to re-sign NLCS MVP Marco Scutaro and Angel Pagan. Both players were instrumental in their 2012 championship run.
Here are the five teams who have taken a step back this offseason.
