MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. - Taking his talents to South Beach has worked out quite well for Greg Dobbs. The former Phillie started at third base for the Florida Marlins in Monday's series opener. It was the ninth time in 10 games that Dobbs started at third for the Marlins. The increased playing time came with a hot bat: Dobbs was up to .359 with 23 hits in 27 games. For some perspective, Dobbs didn't have his 23d hit in 2010 until July 24. The 32-year-old Dobbs always said he just needed more playing time.

Baseball in Florida looked like a winner. With perfect weather and a sellout crowd yesterday, the Florida Marlins made their historic debut a 6-3 victory over the Los Angeles Dodgers. Charlie Hough, the 45-year-old knuckleballer who grew up near Miami, pitched the first six innings for the victory. When closer Bryan Harvey earned the save, his teammates ran onto the field to celebrate in a scene that looked more like October than Opening Day. "Yahoo," Hough said. "I'm kind of proud to be a part of it. " "It was a big game," second baseman Bret Barberie said.

On the heels of an ownership change, contraction talk, and failed progress for a new stadium, the Florida Marlins are suffering through record-low attendance at Pro Player Stadium. Yesterday, in an attempt to juice up the size of the crowd, the team invited dog owners to bring their pets to the park to see the Marlins play the world champion Arizona Diamondbacks. It was called "Dog Day Afternoon" at the ballpark. The result was a good-news, bad-news kind of thing. The bad news: The Marlins lost, 5-4. The good news: The Marlins, who had been averaging about 11,000 fans per home game, drew 13,976 fans and 312 dogs.

Former Phillies catcher Darren Daulton, who was the runner-up to Larry Bowa for the job as the Phillies' manager in the off-season, was mentioned as a top candidate for the position in yesterday's edition of the Miami Herald. Another source said the Marlins players are lobbying for former Phillies manager Terry Francona to get the job over former Arizona Diamondbacks manager Buck Showalter.

It's the best team money could buy vs. the best team in baseball since late May. The Florida Marlins look to knock out the big, bad New York Yankees with an old-school manager, a few veterans and a bunch of kids. It should be fun. Prime-time players. Ivan Rodriguez hit .321 (9 for 28) with two home runs and 10 RBIs in the NL championship series to earn MVP honors. He also hit .353 (6 for 17) with one homer and six RBIs in the NL division series against San Francisco. So, yes, he has come up pretty big lately.

DETROIT - The Detroit Tigers were in the middle of a workout for the World Series when comedian George Lopez showed up and began milling around near home plate. Almost instantly, Miguel Cabrera was beside him, laughing it up and looking as excited as he'd been all afternoon. "He likes to have fun," teammate Quintin Berry said. "He enjoys himself. He loves being here, and he likes the loose environment. I understand him having a lot of fun with George and stuff because that's the same kind of person he is.

Trying to catch Connie Mack Jack McKeon has a new job at age 80 - interim manager of the Florida Marlins. McKeon, who retired as the Marlins manager six years ago, becomes the second-oldest manager in major-league history. Connie Mack managed the Philadelphia Athletics in a suit, tie and straw hat until 1950, when he was 87. McKeon, who guided the Marlins to the 2003 World Series championship, succeeds manager Edwin Rodriguez , who resigned before Sunday's loss at Tampa Bay. McKeon took over a floundering Marlins team in May 2003 and led them to an improbable championship that fall.
