That the Marlins lost their 2017 season opener isn't a shocker. There are some exciting and talented young players on the roster, but unless the starting pitching turns out much better than it should, this looks to be around a .500 club. If everything goes right, they can contend for a wild card spot; if things go worse than expected, they could be battling the woeful Braves for the cellar.
When your home team doesn't look to be great, the best time to watch them play is early in the season, before the reality of losing and the subsequent demoralization set in.
Meanwhile, I will post some more unauthorized photos of Marlins Park. These were taken April 4, 2012, right before the Miami Marlins played their first home game in their then-new ballpark.
Members of the media, including myself, were invited on a tour of the stadium and, more specifically, of the food concession stands. Afterwards, I worked my way towards the bowels of the stadium and checked out the clubhouses.
I’ve been milking these photos ever since, including last season's post, with all different images, entitled Inside The Marlins Clubhouse: Unauthorized Photos.
Let's go Fish!!!
