The Marlins Find An Undervalued Aspect—Tackiness

This is going to be activated every time the Marlins hit a home run in their new ballpark.

And here’s the video from the Miami-Dade County Department of Public Affairs on Facebook.

It looks like something L. Ron Hubbard might’ve come up with while cavorting with young boys on a boat.
Or possibly a cheesier, more tacky version of art in Atlantic City.

Actually, it’s worse.

The Mets and Twins built ballparks where hitters can’t hit home runs; the Marlins built one where they won’t want to hit home runs.

Interested teams should call about Mike Stanton and Logan Morrison immediately. They’re going small ball and it’s due to an undervalued, Moneyball-style strategy: bad taste.

The most egregious part of all this is that the owner—Jeffrey Loria—made his fortune as an art dealer!!!
