Need Baseball Gambling Tips? Ask The Marlins

South Florida sports radio host Andy Slater of 640 AM Sports recently noted on his weekday talk show that the Marlins are currently advertising for a sports handicapper website behind home plate and on television game broadcasts.


From an interview between Bud Selig and Peter Keating in ESPN THE MAGAZINE on April 1, 2011:

The Mag: Let’s talk about gambling. I was watching a Marlins game last year and saw a big ad for a casino on the leftfield wall.

BS: Life has changed. I’m sensitive about this issue, but casino gambling is legal. Any gambling involving baseball, though, is a no-no.

If only Pete Rose had used the “life has changed” defense!
