Publix (grocery store) has a shot, as well as JetBlue orCarnival Cruiselines.

And if the MLB were to allow it, Bacardi would easily have the name IMO.
Bank of America (Carolina Panthers), Chase (Arizona Diamondbacks), and Wells Fargo (Philadelphia 76ers/Flyers) all have stadiums already, so I doubt they would make a play for the new Miami stadium. Suntrust could be a contender, though it would be a bit confusing because isn't Pro Player now called Sun something?

Pro Joe RobbieShark Dolphin(s) Stadium is now Sunlife Stadium. Which is Sunlife financial. Yeah, it'd be confusing.

I know none of those are going to end up being the names. BankAtlantic I believe is losing it's rights to the BankAtlantic Center, although they're 99% not going to be in on the Marlins.

My guesses: Bacardi, Publix, Suntrust, JetBlue, Carnival, NCL, Burger King

Burger King has been getting a lot of rave and speculation as well. FWIW, Burger King started in Miami and I believe is still based out of Miami.

Named after Sun Life Financial, an insurance company founded in Montreal and now based in Toronto.

I hate the name Citizens Bank Park for a number of reasons. Wells Fargo Center is awful too. I would hate Lincoln Financial Field as well if it weren't for the ease of nicknaming it the Linc.

Well, you could do the same and nickname Citizens Bank Park as Citi.



In other news, Chapman is a beast.

Oh, I wasn't commenting on your inclusion of that bank. Seems like it has as good a chance as any. I'm just shocked that a region lousy with illegals who refuse to learn English because they no longer have to has a bank with a Spanish name. Glad I was sitting down when I read that.

Why wouldn't Bacardi fly if Landshark already had the rights to the football field?

I mean, there is Busch and there is Coors, and LandShark had it for a season too.

I believe it's something different when you're talking about liquor though. Dunno, just instinct on that one.

Also, I'll hate it forever if it becomes Banco Popular Field or whatever. That's awful. There's nothing I hate more than the Marlins infatuation with the Spanish people who don't give a shit about the team. Most of the real fans are from the Palm Beach/Broward area, yet the Super Saturday acts (post-game concerts) range from stuff like El Gran Combo to Willy Chirino, etc. it's almost as though they don't want the majority of the fanbase to be interested.

It's taking a great deal of restraint to not go off on a huge jag here, so I'll leave it at this: I hear you.

JJ at it again, no hitter through 4.1, 2 hits through 5.1 though so the no-hitter done relatively early.

Regardless, no hitter through 3 innings in all of his 4 starts this season, through 4 in the past 3 starts.

Nasty.

At least you weren't designated to the batting cage with another fake injury!

Angels Designate Brandon Wood For Assignment
By Ben Nicholson-Smith [April 19, 2011 at 10:58pm CST]

The Angels designated Brandon Wood for assignment to create roster space for Erick Aybar, who is coming off of the disabled list, according to Angels TV announcer Victor Rojas (on Twitter). After five years of disappointing performances in the majors, the Angels are finally ready to cut ties with the former first round pick, who is now out of options.

Wood followed up his poor 2010 season (.146/.174/.208 line) with a remarkably similar performance in 14 appearances this season (.154/.154/.231). The one-time top prospect will likely draw interest now that he's available; he has 161 minor league homers to his name, including 43 in 2005.
