Found February 10, 2013 on Mets Merized Online:
Today is the first day of the Chinese New Year.  As over one billion members of the Chinese community prepare to usher in the year of the snake, baseball enthusiast in Miami is pumped about 2013 – the year of the Marlin.  Before you assume there was a typo in that last sentence with me not pluralizing the word “enthusiast”, take a look at this tweet by Marlins beat writer Joe Capozzi. Of course, I can imagine most of you probably have sore link-clicking fingers from all the snow shoveling you’ve done over the past 24 hours.  So for those of you, I made it easier by posting Capozzi’s photo below: Photo by Joe Capozzi (Palm Beach Post) According to Capozzi, that was the line for single game tickets about half an hour before they were to go on sale at Marlins Park on Saturday.  I understand there are four people on line, making them Marlins fans (plural).  But since the Honey Boo Boo show wasn’t on at the time, they decided to drive their RV out of the trailer park to be the first in l...

Few Marlins fans show to purchase tickets

Today, single game tickets for Miami Marlins games are going on sale at the team's Winter Warm Up event, which starts at 10 AM. At 9:38 AM, Marilns beat writer Joe Capozzi tweeted out this picture of the line for single game ticket sales, just 22 minutes before the tickets go on sale. Oh. About that. I think the four people in line will be able to sit wherever they want...

Miami Marlins top batting order seems in place

The Miami Marlins have once again undergone another offseason firesale, after duping the city to provide them a new ballpark. Outside of Giancarlo Stanton, most of the big names have been shipped out of town and another sub-.500 season appears to be in store for the fish. According to Juan C. Rodriguez on Twitter, the Marlins seem to have set the top of their batting order for the...

Miami Marlins tickets went on sale this weekend, but not many people showed up to buy them

How bad have things gotten in Miami for the Marlins? Well for one, Marlins owner Jeffrey Loria was voted barely more popular than Fidel Castro in South Florida. And if that didn’t tell you how bad things are, the Marlins held their Winter Warm Up event where single game tickets were put up for sale. And the picture above shows the rather anemic line for those tickets. As for the...

Miami Marlins Fans in No Hurry to Buy Tickets

[@joecapMARLINS] After bringing in some high-priced free agent talent, opening a new stadium (of which the tax payers footed a lot of the bill for), and changing their name from the 'Florida' Marlins to the 'Miami' Marlins hopes were high. Instead what they had was the team's worst season this millennium. To make mattes worse, the team basically sold...

Only 3 People Were In Line When Marlins Single-Game Tickets Went On Sale

This, folks, is not good. This isn’t the line for the DMV or to catch the matinee showing of “Fun Size”. No, this is what the line looked like 25 minutes before single-game tickets for the Miami Marlins 2013 season went on sale. This is what dumping $146.5 million in salary gets you one year after a brand new stadium opens built on the backs of taxpayers. The unfortunate thing...

Marlins ready to turn page to 2013

The Miami Marlins will gather their staff for baseball operations president Larry Beinfest's first meeting of spring training Sunday morning. In past years, his program began with a review of the previous season. Not this time. The Marlins are simply tired of hearing about all that went wrong in 2012 - and the fallout that followed. They changed managers, traded players, sliced...

Marlins Updates: Chone Figgins, Jon Rauch Signed, Logan Morrison Awaits Clearance

Clark Spencer of the Miami Herald reports on two veteran signings by the Miami Marlins. 6' 11" journeyman Jon Rauch has signed a 1-year $1 million dollar contract.  The behemoth reliever toiled for the New York Mets last season.  The 34-year old appeared in 73 games, and posted a very respectable 0.988 WHIP in the process.  A balky elbow, however, kept his innings...

The Miami Marlins held a fanfest of sorts on Saturday at Marlins Park. Here is a look at the line for single-game tickets less than 30 minutes before they officially went on sale.As you can see, the Fish are having trouble drawing fan interest in spite of opening a brand new stadium last season.Perhaps it's because the team cleaned house and cut payroll between then and now?...
