  1. Samson was talking that they were trying to renegotiate early, but obviously that was halted with the sale of the team. Regardless, the TV rights should go up, yes. The question is - by how much.
  2. I looked up some info on TV ratings. here are numbers for this year (through July 15th): https://www.forbes.com/sites/maurybrown/2018/07/19/prime-time-tv-ratings-for-each-team-at-the-mlb-all-star-break/#1a0c92cf4c4f Team.....HH Rating......HH(thousands).....all tv rank......cable rank Rays...........2.34.......................44.......................3........................1 Marlins......1.16.......................19......................11.......................4 For 17 vs 16: #.....Team.....'16 rank.....'17 rating.....000's.....'16 rating.....+/- '16....rank all tv.....rank cable.....rank ESPN all tv 18.....Rays..........13.............2.70...........52..............2.85............-5%............3....................1..........................11 26.....Marlins......25............1.32............22..............1.88..........-30%...........8....................1..........................17 For 15 vs 14: #......Team.....'15 rank.....'14 rating.....+/- ....000's....rank all tv.....rank cable 13....Rays.........4.29...........4.32............-1%.....78................2...................1 25....Marlins.....1.99..........1.69............18%.....33..............7....................1 Point being, the Rays have better TV ratings.
  3. Yeah, I think that's basically it - we were too early for the cable rights bubble, and yes, there's also been concerns that we'll be too late for it too. https://www.miamiherald.com/sports/spt-columns-blogs/barry-jackson/article184371948.html I think in order for something like that to work, you'd have to bring the other local professional teams (Dolphins, Panthers, Heat) into it too - a "south Florida sports network" if you will - otherwise, I'd wonder how much revenue a "fish TV" (Marlins only) could truly generate.

    It also make me wonder about Beinfest too and how many moves were out of his hands.
  5. I've read viewership isn't nearly as good as the Rays, though. I completely get the point of the market, but they'll have to argue that point and potential viewership and try to ignore actual viewership when negotiating.

    I've always thought Hill would just be here in a transition mode this year - a guy who knew what was in the system while ownership took over and made changes elsewhere. I wouldn't be surprised to see a change happen this offseason (though it could be the next). When the Dodgers were sold, they kept Colleti for a couple of years before bringing in "their" guy.

    Barraclough to the DL.
  9. Yeah, I've found different areas in the park can be drastically different - in some areas you're fine, some you're hot, and some your freezing (under the air vents).
  10. Well they've done that every time the roof is open since 2012.... A big reason is that there'd be no air flow up in the concourse/concession area without it since the stadium is enclosed.
  11. As has been pointed out, the A/C is on regardless of the roof open or closed. Opening the roof on a hot humid evening in August is not a recipe to attract people to the park, IMO. I get it's not "traditional", but people don't want to sit in a tub of sweat at a game.
  12. Also, we reportedly had some sort of deal with the Dodgers before they backed out due to medicals.
  13. Are you kidding? That's insane. It may be fine to have the roof open up in the air conditioned suite he sits in, and I get it - there are occasionally some nights where there's a relatively nice breeze that it's not so bad out, but come on man? You're just asking people to be miserable and not come back.
  14. AFAIK, there's no cap you can offer to a single player, but there's a cap you can spend overall. So, I believe you could spend all your funds on one guy, or distribute the funds over 3 or 4 guys.
  15. Oh, I didn't understand that. So basically they could put you anywhere - wherever they want to assign you? Or I wonder if you buy it for a certain section for those 10 games? Because otherwise, isn't that what they do for the other 71 games? Oh you showed up, you're in seat ## in the outfield.
  16. Someone was saying Seattle only had 250K left, and I believe you can only trade in 250K increments.
  17. Yeah, if I can flexibly go to any game I feel like (I assume the base 10 would be set games) and move around as is customary at Marlins games, it sounds like a good deal.
  18. It's interesting that it's for all 81 (well, 71) games. It'll be interesting to see how this works. Wouldn't be totally crazy to try it here as a way to get people in the door, though I'd worry about backlash if they take it away later.
  19. Roger Roger -- Maybin to Mariners for a prospect and IFA money.
  20. Mish now saying Maybin is who the Marlins/Mariners are discussing, with IFA money probably involved.
  21. Heyman said we're talking to teams about Dietrich and Bour.
  22. Me either, but I expected some IFA money too. Heres why there isn't... they're paying his salary.
