    Marlins

    Ive only just started watching the baseball, I am living in Miami but I am english and have never taken an interest in the game before. Once you know the rules though its alright! My girlfriend is a yankees fan though even though she is from Texas! I dont understand that. But I admit that I have been ignorant toward american sport, never really giving them a chance but baseball is really fun, and relaxing, I like it!


    Do you think that weather has a big effect on american sports, its hot here but freezing in new york. This must give places like miami an advantage in say, american football, being used to the heat down here!!

    Re: Marlins

    Absolutely.

    Miami Dolphins traditionally play well until October then fold like an origami crane when the weather gets cold. And until last year, the Tampa Bay Bucaneers had never won a game when the temperature was below 40 degrees F. The playoffs being in the middle of winter seems to help cold weather teams. Green Bay lost their first home playoff game in a billion years last season.

    For baseball, it goes both ways. Heat helps carry the ball from what I understand, but cold temperature is tough on pitchers' arms.

    It goes both ways. Sure, Miami can hammer teams that aren't used to the heat, but watch them in Green Bay in November and you'll see the opposite is true.

    Re: Marlins

    I feel her pain, me being from Dallas and all. The Rangers bring nothing to the table and give no real pride to get behind. As nice as the BallPark in Arlington is, it's still sandwiched between Six Flags, a huge water park and restaraunts like the Outback, Fridays and what not. It's a huge amusement park.

    Much like the Marlins, they can't give away seats when they don't win, but all of a sudden have a million "real" fans when they do (actually, every Dallas sports team is like that, look at the Mavericks). They'll spend outreagous amounts of money on big sluggers, but can't attract any pitching to back it up. Not only that, but they'll always play second fiddle to the Cowboys, every team there does. And now that the Mavericks are on fire, they're playing fourth behing the Cowboys, Mavericks, and the Stars.

    Heart is greater than money. The Yankees outspent the Marlins by 110 million, but they are not the better team. As a Mariners fan, I would like to congratulate the team that shares the same stadium as the greatest professional sports team in history. Hopefully the Dolphins can follow in the Marlins footsteps and bring a Super Bowl to Miami. I hate the Yankees and watching them lose gives me joy. Spending money does not always guarantee a title!!!

    Hopefully all you Yankee haterz can stop using that as a reason to hate the team. Everytime you ask someone about why they hate the team its because they have all the money and buy all the players, now you know how stupid that reason is.

    I have to hand it to the Marlins and specially Beckett he pitched a hell of a game.

    Let's not carried away on this money thing. Money helps a great deal.

    I am a Yankees fan, so of course I was dissapointed when they lost. However, I think that the Marlins played an exellent postseason and they deserved the title.

    Good job Marlins.

    So which players from the Marlins will be playing for the Yankees next season? I think George will throw enough money at them and get them to make the move.

    Merged, as somebody doesn't understand the concept of no results in thread titles.

    Agreed, doesn't everyone want their team to have as much resources as possible?? I have plenty of more reasons to hate the Yankees...and I'll start with the quotes from last night, "this wasn't supposed to happen"?? Give me a break...
