Yellow Submarine: the Big Apple's take on Marlins Park

    With the Yankees in town and Opening Day just around the corner, there's much to read in New York this morning on the Marlins and their new ballpark.

    Check out what they had to say:

    -- Tyler Kepner of The New York Times wrote that the home run sculpture is a "soaring center-field edifice" that seems only to be lacking the Beatles' yellow submarine.

    -- Bill Madden of the New York Daily News mentioned that Yankees manager Joe Girardi was denied entrance to his own "media-only" press conference, one of several minor glitches at yesterday's game. 

    -- Kevin Kernan of the New York Post writes that the "ballpark is spectacular and has that South Beach splash."

    -- Last but not least, The New Yorker's Ben McGrath weighs in on the new-look Marlins in the April 9 issue of the magazine. Here's the abstract from his article.
