Booty Returns?

Ken Rosenthal reports that if Josh Booty's knuckler is successful
enough to put him on the Diamondbacks' roster, then the Marlins can
sweep him up...

Not on TV for 2-0-1-3

The FoxSportsFlorida Marlins 2013 broadcast schedule has been
released. They will be showing 150 games this year, broadcasting in
high definition and low expectations.

Of the games they won't be showing, 3 will be Fox Games of the Week
and 1 game may conflict with the exclusivity of another Fox Game of
the Week. Two games will be broadcast by the Rays on SunSports. Two
games could also be picked up on WGN America, but their schedule has
not been announced yet. So at this point here are the games that
probably won't be on basic cable in South Florida....

Sat. April 20 @ CIN
Sat. April 27 vs CHI
Fri. May 24 @ CWS
Thurs. Aug. 8 @ PIT
Sat. Sep. 7 vs WSN
Sat Sep. 21 @ WSN

OOPS! There's also Thurs. Sep. 12 vs. ATL

CHANGE: The Aug. 8 Pirate game will now be on FSFlorida; to keep it at
150 games they won't be showing the home game with the Braves on
Monday, April 8. Here's the TV schedule...

The Last Straw

Now this is too much. You can get rid of the players, the coaching
staff, the execs - all of them. But now, the Marlins are getting a
new Organist??? This is the end of civilization as we know it...

Weekend Watch

Today the Marlins are having what they call the Winter Warm-Up. This
was previously called the FanFest, but the Marlins do not have enough
fans to hold a Fest for them. The press delineates the desperation...

The Fish yesterday signed Chone Figgins to a
minor-league/spring-invite deal. Michael Jong is laughing to the
point of tears...

But at least Figgins and Juan Pierre are good friends - that might
give the dugout a laugh or two during this long season...

Relating to the Public

The Jeffrey Group (no, not the Jeffrey Group that owns the team) is
the new PR firm for the Marlins. This firm says they will help "the
Miami Marlins to communicate their point of view on a whole host of
issues". Good luck - it seems it's that very same 'point of view'
that has been the Marlins' problem, and why Jeffrey and Ironman have
been quiet lately ...
