    What effect would the Marlins winning the World Series

    have on the Phins. I think they're going to win the WS. They're the hottest team in baseball right now. Will any of our games be moved?

    No. We would just have to put up with the dirt infield a little longer.

    Damn, we were down 0-3 in the top of the 8th, and went up 8-3. Jeez, is this baseball or basketball?

    actually it would be 3 games..like most years. By the time the Marlins end the regular season we always played 2 home games already. Then they started laying the sod a weel later after our 3rd home game. I think it switched over the years between 2 and 3 games.

    Our advantage this year is that we had a 4 week break between home games.

    Any other year it would have been 4 home games with dirt infield if the Marlins would have gone to the world series.

    okay im gonna stop yelling with excitement now....this is unbelievable, hopefully this game dwells in the Cubs's heads adn the Marlins can take advantage tomorrow!

    Could be a Yankee-Marlin World Series as early as tomorrow...wow

    It was amazing. :rocker:

    The turning point came when that dumbazz fan stole the ball from Alou. Next pitch (or so), we start the 8-run, 8th inning comeback.

    If this is one of the most resiliant, mentally-tough teams I have ever seen. I can't think of an NFL team that even compares, because the Marlins do it just about every night in these playoffs.

    That fan will be more infamous in Chicago than Bill Buckner is in Boston if the Cubs don't win tomorrow. How bizarre!
    That fan really could have changed Baseball history..... and his life expectancy!:lol:

    That poor guy....lol.

    A 26-year-old wearing a Cubs hat prevented Alou from catching Luis Castillo's ball. Given a last-gasp chance, the Marlins broke loose. That's about when security decided to escort the fan out. He threw a jacket over his face for protection, but not before other fans hurled beers in his direction.

    Please God, let the Marlins lose so the 'Fins don't have to deal with that stupid dirt any longer than they have to.

    Although I hate baseball, and could care less who wins, I would never root for a team to lose in baseball just to benefit our field.

    I thought because the AL won the All Star game that the World series would be at their field?! So wont the WOrld Series be played in Yankee stadium (or whatever stadium the Red Sox play in)?

    They were playing for home field advantage. Meaning whoever won the all-star game would get 4 games at home out of 7.

    Yes. The World Series is set up in the 2-3-2 format in terms of sites. The games go Sat-Sun, Tue-Wed-Thur, Sat-Sun, so the Marlins would have home games in the middle of the week. The conflict arose in 1997 because Florida had homefield, causing that game against the Bears to be moved to Monday night. And since the next home game (after New England) isn't until November, there will be all-grass for that one (against Indy, I believe).

    Better hope the Marlins win tonight (yes, I said "win").

    If they lose, then they'll tear up the in-field and plant grass on Thursday. And, trust me, that''ll be worse than the in-field because the grass will NOT take root by Sunday and THAT, my friends, is a recipe for disaster (major injury).

    The injury bug hasn't really hit us that bad so far this year. And this in-field/grass sh** concerns me.

    Sorry to seem so gloomy about it, but it is a legitimate concern.

    Can't root against the best team in Miami!!!!!!! Like 81 said, putting the grass in tomorrow won't help us Sunday. It's pretty dangerous. Actually, I wouldn't be suprised if they held off till after the game if the Marlins win.

    The stupid Cubs fan that cost them that crucial out might never be able to go to a game again.

    After that play, they kept cutting back to him and he was constantly drenched in beer.He had to be escorted out by security after the game.

    Imagine if that p!ssed off mob found him in the parking lot...

    Also imagine the abuse he is taking at work today...

    The New England game this Sunday will most likely become an away game played at NE if the Marlins advance to the World Series. The WS will start this Saturday so it will have no effect on the Colts game on Nov. 2. If the NE does get moved to an away game, then the Dec. 7 away game at NE will be moved to Miami.

    The only effect I see happening is the Dolphins having to play 4 staright away games dating back from the NY Giants game. (if the Marlins advance)

    This conversation has already been done a few weeks ago.. the Marlins will not be a problem for the Dolphins.. if the Marlins go to the world series (as i was told earlier today) they would only play here like tuesday, wednesday and thursday or something like that but all i know is they would not be here either way on sunday

    Sorry, I guess I wasn't involved in that conversation. I also too believe the Marlins are not a problem for the Fins, I wish the Marlins the best and hope they make it to the WS. But it hasn't been finalized if the NE game will be moved due to the Marlins playing at home on Tuesday for the WS. And thats because baseball officials may feel that they do not want a field torn up by football 2 days before a WS game. Don't ask me why, but they're pretty picky about a baseball's field condition and 'pretty looks' that will be displayed in front of an international TV audience.

    I'm rooting for the Cubs. Besides the dirt infield, these guys haven't won in so long that I feel bad for them. GO CUBS!

    Not to take this thing TOO far off topic, but this is just low class.

    This morning, the Chicago Sun Times released the name of the Cubs fan who went after the foul ball. Not only that, but they also revealed where he worked. The Smoking Gun also put him out there for the Internet to see.

    Way to go, Chicago media. Now this guy can receive his death threats more frequently and in a more timely fashion. :rolleyes: :fire:

    EDIT: Then again, the Sun article does attempt to defend him. But did they have to "out" him like that?? Did more damage if you ask me.
