News flash: Your Marlins baseball club is building a new stadium that will cost taxpayers $4.7 bagillion and, far more tragically, will probably not be sponsored by Jimmy Buffett's crappy beer.

In happier news, they will also drop the "Florida" from their name -- as if they were ever really playing for all of those hardcore Fish fans in Fort Walton and greater Jacksonville.

Marlins Prez Jeffrey Loria has promised a new uni set to go with the Miami Marlins club, presumably less heavy on the ol' teal. That won't happen until 2012, when the new park opens.

In the meantime, fans can already start forgetting about the "Florida" part of the team name. Next year's unis, released this afternoon, have replaced the state name on the road sets with a "Marlins" script and scrapped the "F" logo patch on the left sleeve.

In other news, if you haven't watched the trippy new home run display planned for the new stadium, do it. Do it now.  

It's like the Mets' home run Apple, as redesigned by Doc Ellis while on his no-hitter LSD trip

Which we mean as a ringing endorsement.

Keep Miami New Times Free... Since we started Miami New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Miami, and we would like to keep it that way.

Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
