Fish Bait: Five Targets to Fetch Florida Marlins Fans and Repair Image

The Florida Marlins front office is living a PR nightmare, even though they don't want to admit it.

Many fans have questioned their moves since they've won their last World Series in 2003 and continue to. The leaked documents by Deadspin.com sunk them to near the depths of the Mariana Trench with a flashlight as their incoming stadium bound to light up.

There seems to be no light at the bottom for the Marlins unless they act fast with that new shiny stadium on the horizon. A stadium may sell tickets, but if there is no winning product and loyalty, there will be no fans.

Here is an interesting fact: Since the 1998 season, when the Arizona Diamondbacks and Milwaukee Brewers joined the National League, the Florida Marlins have ranked no higher than 13th in attendance out of 16 teams and have been last since 2006.

Certainly they haven't been selling season tickets like LeBron James did with the Miami Heat by getting their season ticket sales team fired. Yet it is a example of how you can get fans to the new ballpark and give the added benefit of seeing players that played on other star teams.

Here are the players the Marlins should target based on their needs and realistic budget.
