Personal favorites that I wrote
South Florida, it's all your fault

by Bob Timmermann

Dan Le Batard of the Miami Herald writes about Opening Day for the Marlins (later today against San Diego) and places the blame for the lack of support for the Marlins squarely on the shoulders of the residents of the area.

We build two basketball stadiums less than a mile apart for a Heat team that has never won anything. But we won't support in any meaningful way a baseball franchise that has given us as many champions in the past decade (two) as tradition-rich Boston and Chicago (with three teams) have had in the past 80 years. And that's why Marlins owner Jeffrey Loria, the third owner to try and fail here, insulted what little remains of his fan base while at a Marlins-Houston Astros game last week by hosting a San Antonio contingent of power players intent on stealing our team.

Sarah Talalay of the South Florida Sun-Sentinel reports that any move of the Marlins to San Antonio is unlikely in the near future.

I'm hoping to solve the Florida Marlins problem tonight. Win the $189M megalotto, buy the Marlins (may have to do some McCourt financing), and move them to Las Vegas. Not because its a better market, but because I could commute to the games from L.A.

It's a good plan, I hope it works out.

Le Batard left out the Braves and their string of futility in Boston until 1952.
