Getting started in Miami

Tweet [1]

Still have to see how this place plays, but my first impressions of the new Marlins stadium are mostly positive. I haven’t been around the councourse or in the seats, but things seem pretty open and I like the backdrop with the city skyline visible beyond left field. There’s a huge video board in right-center field and some sort of jumping Marlin cartoon-type sculpture in left-center. Parts of it look goofy, but it’s not as over-the-top as I was expecting.

Here’s the lineup for today. Looks like Opening Day…

Derek Jeter SS
Curtis Granderson CF
Robinson Cano 2B
Alex Rodriguez 3B
Mark Teixeira 1B
Nick Swisher RF
Raul Ibanez DH
Russell Martin C
Brett Gardner LF

LHP CC Sabathia
