    And now for today: All exterior signs displaying the current logo have been removed. Interior logos, and the Marlins Park logo on the roof remain intact for now, though. All banners Marlins banners that were on the parking garages were removed, leaving only advertising ones up Some seats above the home dugout have been removed now: The main part of Homer is still visible from the exterior: However! Homer is already being dismantled.......I found parts for it underneath the park in one of the loading bay: Work on homer's new spot in the north east corner hasn't begun yet, though. I also saw dumpsters full of debris and insulation on the west side in the plaza.

    I prefer names on the back. The nameless jerseys look cool but I think they only work on the few classic teams that have them. A team born in the 90s looks fine with names.

    I decided to create a new thread specifically for updates, as it'd be easier to keep it all in one spot. I'm going to include my previous post here to start the thread, and will continue with today's comments/pictures 10/11/18 Update: So an update on the ballpark renovations... I decided to drive by after work and walk around the park and see what I could see. I quickly realized I had never actually walked around the entire park (on the outside) before. I discovered a few things I didn't know were there, namely the new brewery in the north west garage - I remember people mentioning it, but never knew where it was; and the retail space in the southwest garage facing the plaza - both storefronts empty of course, but I never knew it was there....I only knew of the retail on the north side of the northern garages. From the outside, it didn't seem like there's much in the way of renovations going on aside from general maintenance such as pressure cleaning the pathways. The 5th base remains just a fancy tent - honestly I'd never seen it before either. I went down there to try to peek inside, and more importantly to see if there was any sort of work on that northeast corner where they proposed moving the home run sculpture to. There wasn't any work being done there, and the top of the sculpture was intact from what I could see from the outside (roof and windows were open). Walking around further, in the southeast garage, there were stacks of something in the bottom floor - I'm not sure if it was fencing or construction materials. It was too far away to tell what it was. Also on the southeast corner of the park in the loading bays, I saw several of those Waste Management dumpster bag things filled with seats that have been removed. Too bad they're just going to throw them away - I'd take a couple (not sure what I'd do with them, but I'd take them). Anyway, I didn't take any pictures, as they wouldn't have shown up well through the blue windows and distance, but the only interior changes I could see from the Clevelander area was down the 1st baseline in the upper corner where that previous video showed the guy taking out seats. There were three sections extending from the baseline wall which had the top.....eh...10-20 rows (maybe?) removed. There didn't seem to be any work done yet beyond removing the seats in that area. Otherwise, I couldn't see any other changes from that vantage point. I couldn't really see the second or upper deck, and I did not see any seats removed in the areas above the dugouts where they were moving ticket holders (and presumably making seating changes there too). I may continue going every few weeks to see if I can see anything going on if anyone is actually interested.

    I can’t agree. Johnson was a rookie the year Girardi managed. Peak Johnson was 09-10 well after he was gone. The incident was unfortunate and it cost him his 07 season but it didn’t ruin his career

    That won't happen, two completely different revenues. They don't need to spend like the Yankees to be successful, there is a middle ground between cheap and insane.

    I’m confused. I thought Jeter wanted us to be a minor league team. I need the internet to tell me if I’m supposed to be mad that we are a minor league team or the Yankees.

    I loved JJ. He seemed like a good dude, in addition to being talented. That Logan and JJ show was always a fun watch.

    I'd agree to the fact that pitching-wise they were both about the same in terms of peak performance. Jose was the more exciting player of the two simply because of his personality and love of the game - Jose could also actually bat. Pitching-wise though? Yeah 1a and 1b right there.

    Well removing current logos pretty much verify we are getting the change this year. Not that it didn’t look likely anyway.

    I'm gonna try my best to not say that's what she said.

    One thing that I haven’t seen get brought up, are we going to have names across the back of the jerseys or is Jeter so used to not seing one that we might not?

    Retired. Still say Girardi ruined his career. That dude was on his way to becoming the most dominant pitcher in baseball. A legitimate argument can be made that peak Josh Johnson was even better than peak Jose.

    Id take Joe Girardi back if he's still available after next year.

    Sounds like a neat ideal. Don't try to cover everything in one go, otherwise you won't have anything to talk about next time, and you won't be able to cover everything in detail (obviously some subjects require more time than others).

    Yep it seems to be the thing for lots of people including me. Started out disliking it, now like it.

    I think I found @Rydawg on Twitter. He must be Mike 4-2. Weird last name.
