Marlins winners, ballpark loser?

My spies in the street say that the “nuts and bolts” agreement between, the city, the county, and the the Marlins is being cobbled together and should be ready for a July ratification. The fate of the new roofed baseball stadium for the Orange Bowl site rests on this agreement and its approval by the commissions involved. I am told by those in the know that of this day (May 26th) the votes are not there to secure passage by the Miami-Dade County Commission.  “No one is budging and that is it going in,” a source familiar with the story tells me.  Meanwhile the Marlins are performing miracles in the ball yard that Joe Robbie built. Winners or losers it does not matter, for now the Fish big shots are looking at strike three on the ballpark issue.

  1. What about a contract between the Marlins and the only company willing to even submit a bid, Hunt?
