Not South Florida's fault David Selig Baltimore Sun Why would baseball give up on South Florida? South Florida taxpayers paid $360 million to build a new ballpark and to improve the Marlins' chances of sustaining a competitive team. South Florida didn't hire a risky manager. South Florida didn't gut the roster. Jeffrey Loria did. If baseball could give up on Loria, that would be one thing. But it appears the owner didn't violate any rules with this fire sale, so there's not much that can be done.

Major League Baseball officials have contracted a study to determine what the impact would be on the Orioles if a team is moved to the Washington-Northern Virginia area, the Washington Times reported yesterday. Orioles owner Peter Angelos has vehemently opposed such plans. The study, confirmed to the Times by knowledgeable sources who asked not to be identified, is a significant step in the quest to bring major-league baseball back to that area. Neither Angelos, commissioner Bud Selig nor other high-ranking baseball officials returned phone calls yesterday.
