After yesterday's announcement that MLB was looking for a downtown Miami location for the stadium, Hialeah's Mayor had this to say:
''The Hialeah stadium is still the No. 1 priority we're working on [for] a deal,'' said Robaina, who is traveling with Miami-Dade County officials to New York to present the plan to baseball officials next week. ``That's my concentration, and that's what MLB has represented to me.''
Jonathan Mariner, an executive vice president at Major League Baseball, declined comment.
I have no idea whether the downtown location is Plan B to Hialeah or not. But I do know this: neither one is funded at this point.
The downtown site sounds a little more attractive to me. But when it is all said and done, either will do. Just as long as a stadium is built somewhere.
