Even taking into account that ir's a 4th place team visiting a 5th place team, this is an embarrassingly small crowd for a Major League game. Nothing new for Miami, though, I suppose. I'm pretty sure the West Palm Beach Expos games I went to as a kid were better-attended.

Indeed, Basiliscus basiliscus. If Luzardo doesn't adopt the nickname of Basilisk, it's quite a missed opportunity.

If you're talking about The Doors, I know that my mother had their debut album, and that it was released about 9 months before I was born, so I'm OK with Jim Morrison corrupting our youth. A little squicked out, but OK.

Thomas's BABIP may be unsustainable, but I am digging him taking bbs. I really want to get a good look at him this season

Yep. No room in Miami anymore for anything not directly related to playing baseball - aquariums, weird sculptures, fans ...

That town has changed since I lived there.  Back then there was plenty of room for vulgarity and coke and no room for baseball
