Two-Minute Drill: An All-Florida World Series?

My colleague, Ethan J. Skolnick, and I came up with this idea for the paper’s Two-Minute Drill when the Marlins were still in first place:

It may be a tad early, but with both of Florida’s baseball teams in first place or flirting with it, dare we speculate on what to call an all-Florida World Series? New York has its Subway Series, Los Angeles its Freeway Series. Here are some possibilities if the Marlins were to face the Tampa Bay Rays in the Fall Classic:

The Sunblock Series
The Early Bird Special Series
The Minimum Payroll Series
The No Name Series
The This Time It Recounts Series
The Subpar Stadiums Series
The SunPass Series
The Ratings Disaster Series
The Good Sections Still Available Series

What would you call an All-Florida World Series?
