No. We would just have to put up with the dirt infield a little longer.

actually it would be 3 games..like most years. By the time the Marlins end the regular season we always played 2 home games already. Then they started laying the sod a weel later after our 3rd home game. I think it switched over the years between 2 and 3 games.

Our advantage this year is that we had a 4 week break between home games.

Any other year it would have been 4 home games with dirt infield if the Marlins would have gone to the world series.

THIS IS SURREAL, NEAR THE END OF THE GAME I WAS CLOSE TO CHANGING MY SIG AND EVERYTHING ELSE (MORE MARLINS STUFF ON MY RADIO SHOW WEBSITE WAS GONNA BE TAKEN DOWN TOO)

okay im gonna stop yelling with excitement now....this is unbelievable, hopefully this game dwells in the Cubs's heads adn the Marlins can take advantage tomorrow!

Could be a Yankee-Marlin World Series as early as tomorrow...wow

It was amazing. :rocker:

The turning point came when that dumbazz fan stole the ball from Alou. Next pitch (or so), we start the 8-run, 8th inning comeback.

If this is one of the most resiliant, mentally-tough teams I have ever seen. I can't think of an NFL team that even compares, because the Marlins do it just about every night in these playoffs.

That poor guy....lol.

A 26-year-old wearing a Cubs hat prevented Alou from catching Luis Castillo's ball. Given a last-gasp chance, the Marlins broke loose. That's about when security decided to escort the fan out. He threw a jacket over his face for protection, but not before other fans hurled beers in his direction.

They were playing for home field advantage. Meaning whoever won the all-star game would get 4 games at home out of 7.

Yes. The World Series is set up in the 2-3-2 format in terms of sites. The games go Sat-Sun, Tue-Wed-Thur, Sat-Sun, so the Marlins would have home games in the middle of the week. The conflict arose in 1997 because Florida had homefield, causing that game against the Bears to be moved to Monday night. And since the next home game (after New England) isn't until November, there will be all-grass for that one (against Indy, I believe).

-81- McMichael
10-15-2003, 10:59 AM
If they lose, then they'll tear up the in-field and plant grass on Thursday. And, trust me, that''ll be worse than the in-field because the grass will NOT take root by Sunday and THAT, my friends, is a recipe for disaster (major injury).

The injury bug hasn't really hit us that bad so far this year. And this in-field/grass sh** concerns me.

Sorry to seem so gloomy about it, but it is a legitimate concern.

The stupid Cubs fan that cost them that crucial out might never be able to go to a game again.

After that play, they kept cutting back to him and he was constantly drenched in beer.He had to be escorted out by security after the game.

The New England game this Sunday will most likely become an away game played at NE if the Marlins advance to the World Series. The WS will start this Saturday so it will have no effect on the Colts game on Nov. 2. If the NE does get moved to an away game, then the Dec. 7 away game at NE will be moved to Miami.

The only effect I see happening is the Dolphins having to play 4 staright away games dating back from the NY Giants game. (if the Marlins advance)

This conversation has already been done a few weeks ago.. the Marlins will not be a problem for the Dolphins.. if the Marlins go to the world series (as i was told earlier today) they would only play here like tuesday, wednesday and thursday or something like that but all i know is they would not be here either way on sunday

Sorry, I guess I wasn't involved in that conversation. I also too believe the Marlins are not a problem for the Fins, I wish the Marlins the best and hope they make it to the WS. But it hasn't been finalized if the NE game will be moved due to the Marlins playing at home on Tuesday for the WS. And thats because baseball officials may feel that they do not want a field torn up by football 2 days before a WS game. Don't ask me why, but they're pretty picky about a baseball's field condition and 'pretty looks' that will be displayed in front of an international TV audience.

Not to take this thing TOO far off topic, but this is just low class.

This morning, the Chicago Sun Times (http://www.suntimes.com/output/news/fan15.html) released the name of the Cubs fan who went after the foul ball. Not only that, but they also revealed where he worked. The Smoking Gun (http://www.thesmokinggun.com/archive/cubfan1.html) also put him out there for the Internet to see.

Way to go, Chicago media. Now this guy can receive his death threats more frequently and in a more timely fashion. :rolleyes: :fire:

EDIT: Then again, the Sun article does attempt to defend him. But did they have to "out" him like that?? Did more damage if you ask me.

Christ, Major League Baseball needs the Cubs-Red Sox series. Everyone in the country will be watching. It's the series EVERYONE wants to see. Even if it's just Cubs-Yankees, EVERYONE will be watching just to see if the Cubs can pull it out. Or, if we end up with Marlins-Red Sox, at least we'll have another opportunity to see the BoSox blow another Game 7. But, Marlins-Yankees? Ick. New York and Florida will like it, but the rest of us will go back to paying attention to football.

Note this is coming from a Cubs fan, but the entire country has been electrified by these playoffs because of the Cubs and Red Sox and a potential World Series for the ages they'd create.

By the way, check out Canseco and McGwire back then, definately some type of enhancements was being used. Check out Bonds to for that matter when with the Pirates. The difference is astounding.

Sorry bud, but you're wrong.

Obviously you've made those comments because you're Chicagin and you love the Cubs. Just like I'll say I believe everybody is watching the playoffs because people also want to see how far the underdog fighting fish will go and what is the fate of a Cinderella team that were told they're not suppose to be there, yet now are living their dreams. Yes, SOME outside of Chicago and Boston are rooting for these teams but definitely not most.

IMO, the country is attentive to these baseball playoffs because of the incredible excitement, or as you put it "electrifying", produced in these games. And who can we thank? The relentless comeback kids of Florida, the sheer power of Sosa's swing, the dueling dynamic pitchers in the Windy City, the overwhelming hate between the Sox and Yanks, then the fights between the Yanks and Sox. Point is... its much more than "we feel bad for the cubs and sox so we're watching the games to see if they win". The playoffs have been unbelievable and the word has spread! 2 Game 7's!

Samphin

I gotta disagree. I think the ratings would skyrocket if the Red Sox and Cubs made it to the World Series. Reason being is that fans would be witnessing something that hasn't happened in nearly a century. People are tired of the Yankees winnign and the rest of the country doesn't really care about the Marlins. I hate to say it but it is true. No one is talking about the scrappy Marlins and their comebacks. They are talking about The curse of the billy goat and the nerd in the front row "costing" the Cubs the series.

Fans are also talking Beantown Ball as well. I think the least interesting World Series would be the Yankees-Marlins. That is what I want to see, but I don't think the rest of the nation would tune in as much.

I do agree about the playoffs being exciting as all heck this year. Major League Baseball has done themselves a great service in helping mend fences with their fans. They need to just have opening day, than switch immediatly to the playoffs if you ask me. Just put all the teams in a best of five tourney until the the NLCS and ALCS. That would be more exciting if you ask me.

Kamikaze
10-15-2003, 08:49 PM
I won't disagree that the excitment produced in the games themselves has drawn a lot of people to watch October baseball this season, but without the underlying theme of a possible World Series for the ages, a Cubs-Red Sox World Series, there would be far fewer people as interested.

Don't get me started on the Marlins being underdogs. The Cubs are the greatest underdogs in baseball history. Get back to us when your team goes on a 95 year drought.

It's true. Nobody is talking about the Marlins. Watching ESPN from 5-7 PM today, it's all about the other three teams. The only guy to give Florida love was J.A. Adonde on Around the Horn today.

Again, it's not about who's playing great baseball. It's about how pathetic the Red Sox and Cubs organizations have been for the past century. And that is an injustice.

If the media would just look at what's infront of them, they would see that the Marlins are just as good if not a better story than the other two.

#1) The Marlins have overcome the MOST to get where they are. They won it all and then dismantled.....and continue to be dismantled in small increments every season. They are a broke, small-market team (per say). The other three teams are big clubs with plenty of money to spend. That means the Marlins have to scout extremely well and be extremely savvy personel-wise.

#2) The Marlins started something like 16-30. They fired their manager and hired a 72-year old first timer. They brought up numberous rookies from AA. Then from May thru the end of the season, the Marlins had the best record in baseball.

#3) The Marlins are the most resiliant team in the league. And ironically, they are playing the most EXCITING baseball, as they seem to do the impossible every night.

#4) What's more exciting than watching a team that more than likely is playing it's last game together everytime they step on the field?? Whereas the other clubs have money to spend...and retain...the players they want, the Marlins are forced to dismantle...or in this case spend money they don't necessarily have. And as we have been told, the team will likely be forced to choose which 3-4 good players it will let go off again this offseason.


So if you were to ask an educated fan like myself (please refrain from jokes. lol) , who would you rather watch?? The scrappy bunch that is constantly in do-or-die mode (in the truest sense of the phrase)?? Or two classic underachievers who will field the same teams next year if they so choose??

I'd rather watch the greatest World Series of all time. The Yankees are well, the Yankees, and the Marlins won it all in 1997. I don't care for either of those two teams, and America on the whole will tune out a Marlins-Yankees series. If that's what ends up happenning, look up the national ratings and ratings in the New York and South Florida markets. Those two markets' ratings will be insanely higher than the national average. I think cold hard numbers will prove me right. If we get Cubs-BoSox, I'm pretty sure that the New York and South Florida ratings will be near the national average.

Oh, and I'm not spouting this because I'm a Cubs fan trying to find anything to justify why they should make it to the World Series. I do truly believe the MLB will benefit greatly from Cubs-BoSox.

They accomplished nothing more than **** our Dolphins for about another week maybe two. Please dear God let the Soxs or Yanks sweep those un worthy pricks.

Hell yes they are unworthy the last time they got a championship they hacked their team and still play at a football stadium.

You just WANT to get banned, don't you. :tongue:

Seriously though, they're as worthy as anyone. They bust their butts and never quit. No team in the league works harder or is more resiliant. We'd be lucky if our Phins can follow suit.

Still, you might want to put together a more well-thought out post next time. :)

So what the Marlins are the best team since the break, the Fins don't get to play ****ty until a bye week and just bouce right back.

Don't spout off idiotic statements because you're pissed phinfan. That remark about the Marlins being unworthy is not only stupid but is based on false pretences and hypocrisies. The one man who is most responsible for your reasoning about the Marlins being unworthy is Wayne Hyzinga (SP?), who is still a Fins owner if you didn't know. The only players, coaches or FO officials that are on this team that had anything to do with with the '97 team are Conine (who IMO is most deserving of sucess of any player in baseball because of his character) and Castillo (who is one of the scrappiest and best rounded players you'll find in baseball).


Secondly, the Marlins have showed more heart over the last 100 games than the Dolphins have in decades. This team comes back from 10 games under .500, losing their best starter early and their best positional player late with what seemed like marginal talent to being in the World Series and they have no heart? They have 6 comeback wins and 3 wins in their last at bat or in extra frames in the PLAYOFFS and they have no heart? They win 91 games when many were predicting that they were going to lose 90+ and they have no heart? If only they had the collective heart of their football counterpart. :rolleyes:
Right now, the best proffesional sports team (and the one with the most heart) in Miami is the Marlins, not the Dolphins.

Come correct or don't come at all.

I just wanted to say to all my Phin fans out there they were at the start of the baseball season 80-1 odds to make to the World Series and here they are WOW.

Now to our game, according to MLB the rule is if a event is scheduled before a World Series game it is up both Marlins and their opponent plus, the Dolphins if they are willing to put their teams on a field which will have to be repaired due to football being played on the grass outfield. I believe in my mind, the Marlins will let us play but, MLB may not. If this complicates things we will have to swap dates with Patsies meaning we will have to play there and they will play here on Dec. 7th. I really don't care we win away or at home regardless.

Sorry to be a sour grape but, that is MLB for you. But, I don't mind. Go Marlins!!

Go Dolphins!! Here's to a dominating Dolphins win 31-10!

That's a pretty bad way of looking at it.... why all the negativity for home team.... their play isn't a reflection of the stadium/management/owners/financial issues. You gotta love their heart..... they should be an inspiration for our phins...

Yeah he was...he played some games at second before Counsell replaced him. Although he wasn't a big part of the team, he still was a part of it and he still got a ring.

I really wanted the Cubs but I would like to see the Marlins beat whatever AL opponent (hopefully the Red Sox, I can't stand the Yanks and I know too many of their fans) they face. However, I am pissed because when I watch the game on Sunday there will be a big dirt spot.
