SUNNY SKIES AHEAD? In West Palm Beach, Greg Stoda notes perhaps the Johnson extension is a "sign of things to come, with a new stadium set to open in 2012." It would be "fun to see what" Marlins President of Baseball Operations Larry Beinfest "could build if Florida were to nudge" last season's $36.8M payroll just a little higher. Stoda: "It's a waste to shackle Beinfest's genius with such strict economic constraints" (PALM BEACH POST, 1/15).
