Florida Marlins renew contract with Greensboro

The Florida Marlins are going to keep their low-A club in Greensboro for at least another two years .

The Greensboro Grasshoppers will remain part of the Marlins franchise through 2010, the teams announced Tuesday.

Greensboro has been the Single-A affiliate of the Florida Marlins since the 2003 season, when the team was still known as the Bats. Since moving to NewBridge Bank Park in 2005 and changing their name, the Grasshoppers have seen 146 Florida Marlins prospects suit up.

And no, the Hopper has never played for the Hoppers and hopefully he never will.

In case you are wondering why everything is terse for the past couple of days, my day job is getting in the way of my fun job.
