There are tons of Yankees, Mets, and other transplanted fans in southern Florida. That's part of the reason why the Marlins have always struggled financially, despite winning 2 World Series. I don't think the new stadium will help that much.

Also, the Marlins are now being investigated by the SEC because the county decided to fund 80% of the new stadium without even looking at the team's financial records, and there is suspicion that there may have been bribes: http://sports.yahoo.com/mlb/news?slu...easance_120211

I just don't see this ending well for Loria and the Marlins.
