As the ninth largest city in the U.S., S.A. would be a good location for the Marlins' new home. Austin is only an hour away, so you have a good sized fan base out there. They have supported the NBA Spurs enthusiastically over the years and should have no trouble rooting for a baseball team. San Antonio sounds a lot better for their new home than Oklahoma.

All those things are great points about San Antonio...but does the city have a musical named in their honor? Oklahoma would like to point out this fact. At games of the Oklahoma Marlins the 7th inning stretch would consist of "Oh What a Beautiful Morning" in place of take me out to the ballgame. Following home wins the sound of "Your doing fine Oklahoma, Oklahoma OK" will blare from the speakers reminiscent of "New York, New York."

I agree Jaydawg. I still just don't understand why the Marlins don't do well in Miami. Florida is a baseball state. The one thing I don't think many people think about is how hot south Florida can get in the summertime & it even stays that way through the end of the season. Often in Florida, you get 2 seasons instead of 4. One long ass summer(about 9 months), & maybe 3 months of fall & winter combined. Even during those 3 months, it doesn't get bone chilling cold in Florida. Maybe people just don't want to go see a baseball game in Miami in May, June, July, August, or September because it gets so freakin dadgum hot! It can be very miserable. The humidity is terrible in Florida also. I think Tampa Bay on the other hand, have the right idea. Tropicana Field is a very pleasant & comfortable place to go watch a major league baseball game during those scorching hot months during the baseball season in Florida. The only problem with the Devil Rays has been puting a winning product on the field. Marlin fans are more inclined to stay home & watch the game on TV because of the miserably hot weather in Miami. I think this is a major factor that no one seems to think about because there are no breaks from the scorching hot weather down there unless it rains.

From a population & big city standpoint, San Antonio would be a better fit. However, if they move there, the stadium needs to be either in doors, or maybe they should have a retractable roof(like Houston). Fans are more about comfort than you might think. It's hard to get motivated about going to watch a baseball game in 90 to 100 plus degree weather & turn red like a steamed lobster. The baseball season does take place during the hottest part of the year.

Third city mentioned by the Marlins in about a month. They're just trying to get leverage for a new stadium in Miami, but San Antonio/Austin could support a team. Combined the San Antonio/Austin market would be between Denver and St. Louis in size.

For baseball to really succeed in Miami, the Marlins need a stadium with a retractable roof, because the high humidity is not only uncomfortable in the summer, but it also causes lots of rain showers. All new stadiums should have retractable roofs. The technology is there, and you'd never have to worry about rain-outs.

Your right! The humidity does cause it to rain a lot down there. Almost very tropical like really. Very beautiful, but often miserable considering the heat & humidity.

Today, the owner of the Marlins said that talks with San Antonio have become "serious". It looks like a big welcome will be given to the San Antonio Marlins by the 2007 season. Critics might challenge the fact that there's no marlins in S.A. Well, they do have a Sea World out there, don't they? That should count...
