    Sadly, that is true. It is very good for getting you to Downtown Miami (I can count on one had, well maybe both the times I have driven into downtown), but other than that, not much. The spur to the airport will help. If the full system ever gets built (lines to west Dade County near FIU, the north line to the Broward County line (serving Sun Life Stadium and Calder Race Track) and the East-West line (serving the new Marlins Stadium and possibly extended across Biscayne Bay to Miami Beach, though that last line might end up as light rail instead), then it might be worth something. But with the current financial situation (and Dade County has never been flush with cash in good times), doesn't look like that will happen anytime soon.

    • New Yorkers are spoiled when it comes to convenience of the public transportation. Name one place in NY Metropolitan area not served by LIRR/Subway/Bus/MetroNorth.

        • Not having much in the way of public transportation will not be a problem because there will be 5000 parking spots on-site. Overflow (or cheaper options) in Little Havana driveways sounds bad to outsiders, but everybody who ever went to a game at the Orange Bowl has done it. Again, this is Florida, and everybody is happy to drive everywhere. A lot of the Marlins' fanbase comes from an hour outside the wildest dreams of the Metrorail system anyway, so they would have been driving anyway. There's also not a lick of public transportation to the Dolph either, so it's no change for most fans.

                    • New video of the stadium up on MLB.com. It is by far the worst of all the new ballparks. Its so bland.

                          I wouldn't say that at all. If anything it's less bland than Citi Field; at least the Marlins place is unique.

                            Actually I like it. The outfield wall has far fewer nooks and crannies than a lot of other parks. I like quirky ballparks that are made to fit unique pieces of land --- I hate purpose-made quirks, especially weird angles on the outfield walls.

                            And those sliding glass walls behind the left and left-center field stands are a very nice touch.

                            • Besides the hideous coloring of the interior, which I'm sure will be better in real life than the renderings (see renderings of the green wall at Nationals Park compared to the real thing), I like the design a lot. It will fit in nicely with modern buildings down here, and it's the right level of intimacy for a small-market team. Once the details are added, I think people are going to like this place. It's a departure from previous parks, and it will grow on people who are tired of seeing red brick everywhere
