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.
