    Default Mariners@Marlins...in Seattle

    For the second year in a row a team will play an interleague home series in the opposing stadium. This time it's the Marlins playing home games in Seattle, and the reasoning is even more ridiculous than the Blue Jays-Phillies series last year.

    Apparently U2 was scheduled to play in Miami June 29, 2010, but pushed all of their tour dates back a year. MLB didn't think they had a conflict because the Marlins are scheduled to be in Oakland on the 29th. The Mariners were scheduled to be in Miami the 24-26, with the 26th being a Sunday afternoon game. Turns out they were wrong. U2's stage is apparently so complex that it will take more than the 2 1/2 empty days to build it, so the Marlins are going to be considered the home team, batting last, with no DH for 3 days in Seattle.

    For some reason I don't think there's a home field advantage This is pretty ****ty. I understand that it's happening but still.

    Take for instance the Pirates. The Pirates flat out are dreadful away from PNC Park. At PNc Park they are about a .500 team. Taking games away from a team at their home field can make a difference.

    Apparently this thing is the stage they take so long to build:
