I know this will never happen, but it’s cool to read this kind of stuff:
Florida has been trying to get a new ballpark for years, and A-Rod – a Miami boy – would be the biggest chip yet. Imagine a lineup topped by these four: Hanley Ramirez, Dan Uggla, Miguel Cabrera, A-Rod. Wow.
Why not? The Marlins are worth $244 million. And even if owner Jeffrey Loria profited $43.3 million last season, according to Forbes – 58 percent more than the next-best team – he has never shown any desire to spend it. Loria makes Scrooge look like a reckless spender.
Can you imagine if Forbes is actually right about the $43.3 Million? A few years like that and the Fish could easily pay their share of the stadium funds which, according to Miami-Dade officials, is one of the few remaining hurdles.
