Yep. It's time for the annual discussion of moving a Marlins/Mets series to Puerto Rico, though this time it appears more likely to occur. Based on information first reported by the New York Daily News and confirmed by a Marlins source, the Marlins are talking about moving one home series against the Mets next summer -- either in June or July -- to the island commonwealth.
It wouldn't be the Marlins' first trip to Puerto Rico. They visited San Juan in 2003 and 2004 to play the Montreal Expos in a pair of 3-game series.The Marlins are scheduled to host the Mets three times in 2010: May 13-16, June 28-30 and Sept. 21-22. The June series, a mid-summer, mid-week affair, is more than likely, the one under discussion.
A Marlins/Mets series in Puerto Rico was also discussed for last season but failed to materialize.
