Marlins owner Jeffrey Loria commissioned a replica Marlins Park cake to celebrate the opening of the stadium on Wednesday. According to the Miami New Times, Loria wanted a cake that could feed 800 people. The fine folks at Divine Delicacies, which also created LeBron James’ birthday cake, were able to come through with this gorgeous masterpiece that also contained a retractable roof. Don’t ask me how they do it. The Miami New Times has a few more details on the cake: Divine Delicacies was notified in advance that it would be presented in Loria’s suite for his 50 VIP guests. It was made with red velvet, guava cream cheese, vanilla rum, and marble chocolate batters. And if four different flavors in one cake weren’t extravagant enough, the cake’s ballpark top even had a retractable ceiling. Here are a few more pictures of the outstanding cake: That thing was incredible. H/T Deadspin Photos via Devine Delicacies

Offense Comes Alive in Cincy

Ricky Nolasco...

Selig's review of Marlins Park: 'Wow'

MIAMI (AP) -- Commissioner Bud Selig offered a one-word review of Marlins Park. "All you can say is, Wow,'" Selig said. Muhammad Ali had the same reaction.

Buehrle strong, offense not in Marlins' loss

CINCINNATI (AP) -- Jay Bruce homered and drove in a pair of runs, and Johnny Cueto dominated in his first opening-day start, leading the Cincinnati Reds to a 4-0 victory over the Miami Marlins on Thursday before one of their biggest crowds.

Hits and Misses: Marlins Pregame Was A Disgrace, Niese Deal Is Not A Wilpon PR Move, It’s Opening Day!

Just a couple of thoughts on that bizarre Marlins pregame ceremony and the reports of a 5-year Niese extension. What a despicable act by the Miami Marlins last night, who decided it would be a brilliant idea to wheel out the ailing boxing icon Muhammad Ali as part of their pre-game ceremonies. Sorry, but that was a terrible call, and to use someone so legendary and obviously...
