Actually, its going to be quite cool for our standards, almost January-like weather. High temperature should be in the upper 60's and it will be windy. At 4:00, temp should be 68, falling to 62 by 7:00. Humidity very low around 40% and chilly winds from the North at 15-20 mph.

I'm sitting in section 457, row 5.
You might want to check your tickets agains or make sure they're real, because PPS doesnt have a section 457. It goes from 401 to 456.

I know they're hell bent on sqeezing everyone together with less sections available ... ,but I hope they have the sense enough to open more sections if necessary!

I mean if a miracle happened(and I think it will be their largest opening day crowd in a LONG time) and 50,000 people show up, let them in! Pro Player has the seats!

But here's the deal, they have to pay for ushers and the rest of the concession stands to be open!!!!!!

Will they do it???!!! MoooohoohAA HAHAHA.......

-and wouldn't you know it? hottest spring training ever? and it's going to be cool tomorrow?!

well maybe they could let the people in without ushers in the upper deck. Is not like anyone would try to sneak in to the upper deck.

what they should do is open atleast 1 or 2 section.

So far I read some good articles on Sun Sentinal and I like the one Hyde wrote but I decided to see what on Hearld and saw this:

16. Florida Marlins

''Bigamy is having one husband too many. Monogamy is the same.'' -- Erica Jong

The Marlins led the league this spring in bigamists but released Al Martin. Help me with the math: You finish near the bottom of the league in runs and homers while finishing first in steals last season. So you decide to correct this by deducting home runs (Kevin Millar, Cliff Floyd, Preston Wilson, Charles Johnson) and adding steals (Juan Pierre)? Starters are supposed to be the strength of the team, and could be, but they were 11th in the league in ERA and second in walks. Castillo and Pierre had 95 stolen bases last year. Eighteen teams had fewer. Carl Pavano was once traded for Pedro Mart?nez, which is about the worst trade anyone has made since the Indians gave up Manhattan for $24 in trinkets. Perhaps it is possible that the best man to manage the team was hired after coaching Jeff Loria's son (Jeff Torborg), and perhaps the best man to be team president happened to marry into Loria's family (Dave Samson), and perhaps the best man to be strength coach happened to be Torborg's son, but does this feel odd to anyone else? Pierre will weigh 112 pounds by August


Dan Retarded has the Expo ahead of the Marlins.I wonder why this guy opinions even matter and why ESPN paying to voice his opinion.

I have alway's thought lebatard was alway's putting on an act to get on ESPN. He alway's play's the guy who doesn't agree with anything, just like The Marlins. If he started to support Miami sport's I honestly beleive ESPN would not need his services. It' just an act.

Just my opinion.

I read Le Batard a lot, and you know what? That Josh Clinton article on the firums tha is posted is problably a lot more believable, and much more intelligent then anything Le Batard has ever said/written.....
