    Now, if we can get something like that up in the Tampa area, the Rays won't be playing ball in an empty sardine can.

    Ozzie just doesn't know when to STFU. He is free to be very stupid. Proven now.

    you get to see tomorrow's stars (Ripkin, Thome, Eddie Murray, Canseco, Manny Ramierz) before they were called up

    this wooden stadium was located around the corner before it was burned down in a teen prank. crockett park was a great place to watch high calbre baseball on the cheap. the beer was cheap, too. so much so that i usually had to crawl home

    Wasn't much fodder with Ozzie regardless. PR comes with his job, and while he may not be too good with the positives of it, he needs to be sure to not be a negative contributor.

    As for baseball on the cheap .... Spring Training is all of that. And you get to see today's stars too. Before they relocated to the cactus league, the Indians were close by here in central Florida. Used to sit 5 rows behind the visitors dugout for $12. It was under cover from the sun too. Yankees. Cardinals. Braves. Phillies. Rays. Tigers. Blue Jays. Dodgers (before they went Cactus too). Some of the South Florida clubs won't come up and play cental Florida, such as the Orioles and Red Sox and Mets.

    Everyone in baseball, and every baseball fan, knows that Ozzie is a habitual loose cannon. I'd say this is a case where the Marlins assumed the risk. Doesn't excuse him for being a dimwit, but he doesn't seem to have a filter between his brain and his mouth.
    "The necessaries of life occasion the great expense of the poor. They find it difficult to get food, and the greater part of their little revenue is spent in getting it. The luxuries and vanities of life occasion the principal expense of the rich, and a magnificent house embellishes and sets off to the best advantage all the other luxuries and vanities which they possess. ... It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion."
