Miami has the lowest revenue in all of baseball, and according to CBS Sports' Jon Heyman, rival executives are upset the Marlins receive the most money in revenue sharing.

Some big-market teams are said to be upset that the Marlins are the team with the lowest revenue in baseball, and thus they receive the most money in revenue sharing from the highest-grossing teams despite having a new stadium. Teams sharing their money often has led to upset on the part of the payers, but the extra unhappiness in this case is that monies go to a team with the supposed benefit of a new stadium.
