Are you talking about Michael Pineda...? Or Mauricio Robles? Because Robles is hurt. But I'm sure he's doing better for us than Jarrod Washburn is doing for you.

Wow. You might want to see someone about that anger, son. I was talking about the stud that you guys have coming up from the minors that is high on everyone's list. I believe he's a 2nd baseman?

Oh, okay, because see every time you've addressed me in the past, say, 20 months or so in the baseball thread, it's been to mention that trade and deride Mauricio Robles and/or Luke French.

Ackley's not ready yet. He'll be ready sometime this year, though.

Also, it's highly likely he's Brian Roberts 2.0. Not exactly a stud, but above average.

This is going to twist your training pants in a bunch, but I don't think about you. Hell, I don't even think about your team. If I've mentioned the same thing a few times, I either believe it or was making a point.

Simmer down, I don't know maybe go out and talk to real people. Kiss a girl ... or a boy. Apply for a job. Do something that will help you not take this, the internet, so seriously.

Ackley! That's him. I hope he does well. I enjoy good 2nd basemen.

Naming rights will be revealed in May.

Suntrust, BankAtlantic (already named on the BankAtlantic Center), and Banco Popular (specifically in that Miami area) would be the three that are more unique to the area, as well as your usual Bank of America, Chase, Wachovia/Wells Fargo, etc.

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.
