Here is what DuPuy had to say:
"In terms of the county and the city, that's the only site on the table right now."
What about in terms of MLB or the Marlins?
"...The Orange Bowl site is the site under consideration at the moment."
At the moment?
It's the Orange Bowl or Bust for South Florida. I kinda wonder what else could be on the back burner, if anything.
DuPuy went on.
So MLB is going with what Samson said before. Probably more accurately, Samson gave the MLB line before they did.
Also as Mbaamin brought up, some of the county commissioners have stated they won't go through with the deal unless the Marlins agree to chip in the $207 million they agreed to do for the downtown site. And who knows if the team will still agree to cover cost overruns.
Which brings us to this:
Oh, that's encouraging.
The Orange Bowl is where the future home of the Marlins will be, should it be in South Florida. And South Florida is where I would like it to be, but I'm not liking the language I am hearing.
Hopefully, it will all workout and it is just negotiation pains that go with the process.
