The Marlins Are Copy Cats


Miami city and county leaders are close to an agreement to build a new Florida Marlins baseball stadium without state assistance.

What's more, the Marlins proposal could copy the sail-like roof design the Rays are planning, and open a year before the new ballpark in St. Petersburg.

The proposal, which was released this week, would rely solely on $370-million in local development taxes and city reserves, and a contribution from the team of $155-million.

As noted in the comments radio man Andy Freed will remain with the team rather than head off to the Mets.
