Marlins are being considered for Showtime's "The Franchise"

     Not surprisingly, given all the fanfare surrounding them, the Marlins are being considered as the featured team for Showtime's "The Franchise," the popular baseball docuseries." The pay-per-view channel confirmed earlier in the week that it has ordered a second season of the series, which last season examined the behind-the-scenes workings of the San Francisco Giants after they won the World Series.

     With a new ballpark on the horizon, new uniforms, a vociferous manager (Ozzie Guillen) and a new cast of stars, the Marlins are a natural fit for the Showtime series, which last season averaged more than 650,000 viewers per episode.

      Showtime is granted exclusive access in order to present a rare, behind-the-scenes look at the sport.

      To get an idea, take a look at the first episode from last season here.

Marlins are sure bet to not make the play-offs by being on this Showtime series. They will follow in the footsteps of the Giants and White Sox. Call it the Showtime Curse.


Ozzie on showtime? love it, need it.


Better be in spanish, Ozzies comes off as an illiterate, uneducated moron in english.

Ozzie IS an illiterate,uneducated moron. It doesnt interfere with being a good manager. What do you want,a Rhodes Scholar or a guy that can communicate on the same level as most of his players,especially the latins.
