Marlins Playing At Miller Park Shouldn’t Cause Concerns
Milwaukee Brewers thought they would be heading to Miami over the weekend to play a three-game series against the Miami Marlins. That changed suddenly in the middle of the day on Wednesday as the MLB and Marlins announced the games will be played at Miller Park. This was surprising to say the least as when these games have moved, it’s been to neutral sites. The problem is there’s nowhere to play close to Miami with Atlanta, Tampa Bay and Washington all having home series. This left the Marlins with the decision to play the Brewers at home. Many are overreacting to Brewers-Marlins playing these games at Miller Park as they’re putting the cart before the horse.
People want to see the Chicago Cubs or St. Louis Cardinals mad that this series is taken place in Milwaukee and gives the Brewers an edge, yet that’s not going to happen. First, no one will want to take a shot at what’s happening with a city trying to pick up after a hurricane. Second, it makes the most sense from a logistic standpoint. Like we noted, there were not many places that it made sense for the teams to play this game instead. I know people want to see this get added to the rivalry between the Cubs and Cardinals, yet it’s just a team helping out.
On personal note, it’s a bummer I’m so busy this weekend because I would have loved to go to see this team in a pennant race for 20 dollars for premier seats. It will be weird watching on Friday with a few limited group of people at the game.
