  1. Marlins TV Rights Negotiations

    I still don’t understand why West Palm Beach gets their own ABC, CBS, NBC, and FOX affiliates. West Palm Beach is still in the Miami MSA (Metropolitan Statistical Area). It’s like Oakland getting it’s own TV Market from San Francisco, Fort Worth from Dallas, Anaheim from LA (etc.).Telemundo and...
  2. Marlins TV Rights Negotiations

    Bad News Source: John Wall Street Section of Sports Illustrated The Miami Marlins television deal with Fox Sports Florida expires at the end of the 2020 season and despite talk of "ongoing, serious negotiations" it is feasible - if not increasingly likely - that the existing pact could reach...
  3. Rays Split Season Sales Pitch (Thankful We Have a Beautiful Stadium)

    When I first read this, I though it was from The Onion. Apparently this is the Rays sales pitch to Tampa-St. Pete residents for supporting the split season idea. So comical I had to put it in the main thread. No better way to rally support for an idea than to insult your own city and fanbase.
  4. Marlins Reportedly Staying with 940 WINZ as Flagship Station

    Marlins are reportedly staying with 940 WINZ as flagship radio station. Interesting since they can’t be heard in some of Broward and all of Palm Beach County at night (Probably inquired with Entercom’s 790 The Ticket and 560 The Joe and there were no takers) They have improved lately by adding...
  5. Marlins TV Rights Negotiations

    Marlins are reportedly staying with 940 WINZ as flagship radio station. Interesting since they can’t be heard in some of Broward and all of Palm Beach County at night. They have improved lately by adding 1230 WBZT in West Palm as an affiliate. The organization needs to work on adding affiliates...
  6. Marlins TV Rights Negotiations

    If Sinclair can’t at least match that deal, the organization should walk. The upfront payments in the deal would have made a big difference in making the club a contender immediately, the payments were probably in the $10-30 Million range. If we can’t get a streaming deal, I’m sure Comcast would...
  7. Marlins TV Rights Negotiations

    The team could absolutely have kept Rich and T Hut. When the Cubs move their TV broadcasts from NBC Sports Chicago to Marquee they automatically keep their play-by-play and color commentator as long as their under contract with the team. Same with Vin Scully when the Dodgers moved from Fox...
  8. Marlins TV Rights Negotiations

    Not only is your prediction correct, it’s now being backed up by the numbers that have recently been released. A couple of years ago, this was introduced as a possibility but many were shrugging it off. It’s now reality. In this new environment, if you can’t get the money via rights fees you go...
  9. Marlins TV Rights Negotiations

    The Royals had an average annual value of $25 Million in their previous TV deal. In their new 10-15 year TV deal the AAV will be $50 Million. The Marlins are now receiving about $18-20 Million per year. If we extrapolate using the new Royals TV contract at a 100% increase the Marlins would...
  10. Marlins TV Rights Negotiations

    Also, Dish Network and fuboTV have dropped the Fox RSNs. This results in lower advertisement rates along with the decrease in subscriber revenue.
  11. Marlins TV Rights Negotiations

    The 25-35 games on OTA broadcast stations would provide more brand exposure than what we have now on cable with Fox Sports Florida. The ratings prove being on OTA Broadcast TV is better than being on cable. 10PM Ratings (# of households) WSVN: 250,000-300,000 WPLG: 150,000-250,000 Fox Sports...
  12. Marlins TV Rights Negotiations

    Sinclair might be getting cold feet because of the performance of the team in the past few years. If these are there options: Sinclair (Fox Sports Florida): 10 Year Deal $40 Million 1st Year, $70 Million 10th Year ESPN+: 5 Year Deal $65 Million 1st Year, $85 Million 5th Year If those are the...
  13. Marlins TV Rights Negotiations

    At this stage of the negotiations, the Marlins should be close to an agreement with Fox Sports Florida by now. They have been negotiating with Fox Sports Florida since 2017 when Jeter & Co. took over. If they haven’t made significant progress in the last 27 months then it’s unlikely that they...
  14. Marlins TV Rights Negotiations

    On the 2020 Bold Predictions Thread I posted that my off-field prediction was that the Marlins would sign with a streaming service (ESPN+, Amazon Prime, etc.). Many have asked questions since and I’m posting this thread to answer some of those questions. Q1: Hm, where'd you hear that? I mean...
  15. 2020 Bold Predictions

    Bold Predictions On-Field: Marlins will win 74-83 games. Wichita Wind Surge will make a run in the AAA playoffs. Off-Field: Marlins will sign an exclusive local TV deal with a streaming service (ESPN+, Amazon Prime, etc.) based on what I’m hearing negotiations aren’t going great With Fox...
  16. Marlins Should Sign a Short-Term TV Deal

    I completely agree, if the organization chooses to sign a 15-30 year deal they should definitely have a Rays Relocation clause.
  17. Marlins Should Sign a Short-Term TV Deal

    The Marlins TV deal expires at the end of this season and since the Rays are most likely going to leave the Tampa Bay Area by 2027, the Marlins organization should only sign a 7-10 year TV deal. Right now the odds for the Rays are as follows: Full-Time Stadium in Tampa Bay Area: 5% Split...
  18. Do we have a Top 5 Farm System Now? (Answer: Yes, top 4 to be exact!)

    We were 10th one week ago. Do these trades move us into the Top 5?

    Tonight’s attendance was very impressive: 9,469 Only Friday Night with higher attendance was 5/17 vs. Mets: 9,870. We will have our first 10,000+ Friday Night very soon. Starting Pitching was impressive, bullpen was great tonight, Offense was very productive. We will make the playoffs by...
  20. Glenn Geffner knocks one out of the park

    This has to be the greatest Twitter thread I have ever seen. Geff clearly Point-by-Point explains why there can’t be any more excuses for not attending games. The best part is after the thread when the first fan reply is how these players might get traded when they reach arbitration.  Geff...
