You were contradicting your arguments by saying that you wanted to talk TV markets only and not population/geographics ... and then talking about population/geographics in regard to the new stadium's location.

becuase this whole mess has split up into a million different conversations. I'm not sure if you're talking about filling a stadium as opposed to where fans actually are.

It's all Marlins territory south of Orlando... but I dont expect anybody north of Boca Raton to be the ones filling the seats...

Our point is that Miami isn't a small market by any definition, it's just a bad market ... and that there are too many teams in all sports because cities like Miami and Tampa and Jacksonville got teams and the talent's been spread too thin. That's the conversation we're having.

Very well, I disagree. There's a case for basketball and the talent getting spread too thin, although I think in baseball the MLB could even expand and there would be plenty of talent to go around.

Pitching is the problem. There's not enough to spread it amongst 30 teams.

I think Rangers fans should be happy that the statue of Michael Young will be finally removed from the field.

Yep. Nice to have him off the hot corner, and now the Rangers have arguably the best defensive left side of the infield in the game now. You wouldn't know that since Jeter is apparently a better fielding shortstop than Elvis though. Beltre at third and Face at DH is a huge improvement on both sides of the ball over Face at third and Vlad at DH. I'm very pleased with this move.

Also pleasing: Beltre spurning the Halos means we might get some more Dick Wood sightings!

The sad part is that we don't get to watch Vlad playing right field in the World Series.

Have the Los Angeles Angies of Eastern Osaka done anything this offseason?
They were a lock for Crawford and that fell through, then they were a cinch for Beltre and he's in Tejas...that team was just a shade above the Seattle NoRunners offensively and they haven't done a thing....folks aren't gonna buy any tickets to see Dick Wood and his band of light hitting minor leaguers.

They haven't done anything but shed Matsui's cadaver. Getting Morales back from injury looks like their big offseason move. Look out, AL West!

I'm hugely disappointed Abreu will be moved to DH. Watching Hamilton liners fly over his fat head always brought me such joy.
