Please stop making threads. 

 

Also, Rays will leave Florida because their lease expires in 4 or 5 years. 

 

Marlins will stay because they signed a lease for 30 more years.

The point of the topic is pointing out how foolish the National Baseball Media is for bashing the Marlins fanbase which is upset about the current product on the field while Tampa can’t even turn out 10,000 on a weeknight for a team that is going to win 95+ games.

It’s not that simple but it speaks to the fact that some of the excuses used by Tampa fans are not valid. Us Marlins fans are willing to put up with all of the same traffic and other hurdles in order to support our team, even if we are frustrated with the product on the field.

I also believe that when the Rays move out in the next decade, it will open up many opportunities that the Marlins haven’t had since 1994-1998. I find it to be no coincidence that our most successful years were when there was only one team in the state of Florida. Our TV ratings, merchandise sales, and sponsorship revenue would be much higher if we were the only team in Florida. For Example, markets such as Atlanta (Braves), Boston (Red Sox), and St. Louis (Cardinals) are all able to thrive because they don’t have competition within a 5 hour driving distance. I didn’t mean to saddle the forum with a ton of Rays talk, I just think that the Marlins would be in a much stronger financial position for payroll and therefore success as the only team in the State of Florida.
