Dolphins Grab Win In TNF, Mike Trout Asset For Angels, Stanton Superstar For Struggling Marlins


In the NFL, it was Thursday Night Football between the Buffalo Bills and the Miami Dolphins.  This was a key divisional match-up for both teams looking to grab a playoff birth.  The game was slow to start, but soon enough, the Dolphins offense kicked into high gear.  Unfortunately for the Bills, they just couldn’t get anything going on offense, and were held to 3 field goals.  Miami grabbed the win, and pulled into second place in the AFC East behind the Patriots.  Miami 22, Buffalo 9.


Mike TroutThe MVP awards are coming out, and the Angels Mike Trout became the youngest player in major league baseball to get a unanimous vote.  He is only 23, and it it seems clear that the Angels have a young Hall of Famer on their hands that could be a major asset for them for at least the next 10 – 12 years.

Elsewhere in baseball, the Miami Marlins are a struggling franchise.  They went through a major re-branding effort a few years ago trying to rejuvenate baseball in South Florida.  Unfortunately, that didn’t work all that well. They have terrible attendance and seem to be losing money every year.  Fortunately, they have an up-and-coming superstar on their roster in Giancarlo Stanton.  They need the franchise to have a face, and according to sources, they are ready to make Stanton that face for a deal worth roughly $300million.  That’s a huge amount of money, but they are looking to do whatever it takes to be successful.
