Marlins may move series to Puerto Rico

The Florida Marlins are in "extremely preliminary" talks to move their July 28-30 series against the New York Mets to San Juan, Puerto Rico. Other series are under consideration.

It's not known if playing games in Puerto Rico is one of the first signs of franchise death. Doctors say that more data is needed.

Isn't that what teams do before they move to DC?

RFK Stadium is free come March.

1 You think if they did, then the Nats could move to Cleveland and become the Midges. That way Cleveland would stand a better chance of getting to the World Series, especially if they're up against the Dodgers next year... >;)

Hiram Bithorn Stadium will likely be sold out, a capacity 18,000 crowd, and the Marlins only drew an average of 16,919 to Dolphins Stadium in Miami so it's not that big of a deal if the games move. The fish probably draw a little better with the Mets in town due to all the transplanted New Yorkers but it's only an East Coast team like the Mets who would readily agree to switch the site of the games to Puerto Rico because of the extra travel. Los Mets have several marketing initiatives already to the Spanish-speaking markets so this is win-win for them.

FYI - the Expos averaged 14,222 attendance in their games in Puerto Rico.
