Now, it is up to the county to finalize the deal.
Thank God the city is not letting Norman Braman rattle things. Who knows what his agenda is, and I am skeptical of any kind of do-gooding social platform. This is about money and he isn’t getting his cut.
Still, the stadium is not definite yet. Let’s hope the county doesn’t screw this up in the final hour. Even with a new stadium, amazingly there is still skepticism about whether or not it will help the Marlins. The fact is, their current lease at Joe Robbie, I mean Dolphins Stadium, is darn near criminal. Controlling the revenue streams for their own facility will give them more financial flexibility.
Whether or not Loria uses that money to better the club remains to be seen.
