"Miami Marlins" garb goes on sale Saturday

       The Florida Marlins are down to their final day before morphing into the Miami Marlins (save the tears), and with that comes the announcement that T-shirts, caps and such will go on sale on Saturday at select outlets in South Florida. The team is unveiling its logo and unis Friday in a ceremony at the new ballpark, so you'll have time to decide whether or not you like the brand-new look.

        Here's where to find the new apparel come Saturday:

        1) Dolphin Mall (11401 NW 12th St.) at Entry 5, near the Marshalls and Burlington Coat Factory. Omar Infante, Gaby Sanchez and Hanley Ramirez will be on hand from 12:45 p.m. to 1:45 p.m.

        2) Aventura Mall (19501 Biscayne Boulevard) on the Lower Level near JC Penny.

        3) Sawgrass Mills Mall (12801 West Sunrise Boulevard) at Mall Entry 3 near FYE. Josh Johnson and Ricky Nolasco will be on hand from noon to 1 p.m.

        4) Marlins en Miami Store (3701 SW 8th. St.). John Buck and Anibal Sanchez are expected to be present from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.

        Also, starting Friday at 11 p.m. and continuing through the weekend, new Marlins merchandise can be bought at the new ballpark.

        "Marlins Insider," hosted by Marlins radio broadcaster Glenn Geffner, returns Saturday on 790-The Ticket with a special three-hour broadcast from the new ballpark. Guests scheduled to join Geffner from noon to 3 p.m. include Ozzie Guillen, John Buck and Anibal Sanchez.

       The show will also be streamed live online at Marlins.com.

I am just so excited about the new logo...and the uniforms...and even the name. I want the uniforms to have blue and orange trim. I want the logo to say NY Mets across the front and I want the name of the player in the uniform to be John Buck. Now isn't that worth all of this fanfare?

It will only be acceptable to buy any of this new "Marlins" gear if you plan on immediately burning it and sending the charred remains to Loria.

This is the worst rebrand in the history of baseball. By a wide margin. It's blatant disrespect to Marlins fans and an embarrassment to the game.

I'll be dead in the cold ground before I put on one of those gaudy caps. The Marlins and a big part of South Florida and my childhood die tomorrow. I'll miss them.

Hey, F19, you're obviously one of two things: (a) too young or (b) too stupid to remember the fact that is isn't a "rebranding" but a return to what true Miami Baseball history was, and that is the name "Miami Marlins." It was H. Wayne Huizenga and his hate for all things "Miami" that made that abomination known as "Florida Marlins." I'm sure if Wayne had his way he would've renamed the Dolphins the "Florida Dolphins."

I for one am looking forward to giving our baseball team it's true name. The name it should have had from the beginning!

I don't mind the name change. If they are in Miami, then Miami Marlins should be. But certainly i didnt like the logo and the colors.

Hey Michael A.R. ... Have you seeen the new uniforms, logo, and hats? They're hideous. I'm right with F19 there. I have no problem with the new ballpark (other than maybe the home run feature) or the name change to "Miami Marlins" ... those are great. But the merchandise with the new team colors and logo make me want to just throw up in my mouth a little every time I box them up.
