With the Miami Dolphins losers of four straight games and the Miami Marlins still being the pun of most jokes in major league jokes, Miami fans will tune in tonight to watch a champion take the court. The Miami Heat will begin their quest for a 3-Peat starting tonight against the Chicago Bulls.
If I were owner Jeffery Loria, I’d be tuned into the game and be taking notes.
- Watch the star players taking the court for the home town team, instead of traded off to another organization.
- Watch how owner Mickey Arison pays hefty expenses to keep the team together and keep the fans happy.
- And most importantly, watch how Arison allows the players to play, Erick Spolestra to coach, and allows the legend Pat Riley to build his team without an meddling.
If Loria can learn these three things from the Heat, the Marlins will be in a much better place in 4-5 seasons, maybe even beginning a 3-peat quest of their own.

With an exciting World Series, the Miami Dolphins struggles, and the Miami Heat starting their quest for a three peat, there was some Miami Marlins news that has gone under the radar.

According to ESPN’s 2013 Major League Baseball Park Factors for the 2013 season, Marlins Park ranked dead last in home runs being hit out. That is much to the dismay of many Marlins hitters, including Logan Morrison, who had his fair share of issues in hitting at Marlins Park.
