    Miami Marlins??

    When the hell did this happen? I admit, as a Cub fan, other than following Starlin Castro a bit, I checked out about 150 games ago this year, so it's not all too suprising they slipped this one by me.

    Anyway, it sounds like a team from old school Bases Loaded.

    The city paid for their new stadium and as a condition, required the team to change thier name.

    What next? They change their mascot to the Gators. Move to the AL and lose to the Cubs in the 2015 WS.

    I get it. They outsmarted the city. Miami Marlins at Florida Field.

    I guess they gotta try something. Maybe the city will show them more support now.

    Maybe they have the same logic as the Rays to think that if they change their name, they will have a better team.

I wonder if the Cubs will beat Miami in the 2015 world series as it was in the movie...Cubs fans can only hope.
