XM 175Maury Brown of the Business of Sports Network and BizofBaseball.com will be on XM Satellite Radio 175 at 11:40pm ET, 8:40pm PT Monday night to talk the biz of baseball.

Topics for tonight’s show include the naming rights deal between the Mets and Citigroup in the wake of Citigroup’s bail out by the government. The agreement between the Mets to name their new ballpark Citi Field is the most lucrative deal in U.S. sports history.

Also up for discussion, the Marlins have cleared one of the last legal hurdles for financing of their new ballpark in Little Havana on the current site of the Orange Bowl. Will the Marlins make the 2011 target date for completion of the new ballpark? Tune in and hear.

Even players that are no longer on an MLB roster are making the news. Today, a U.S. District judge threw out five of 14 charges against Barry Bonds involving perjury and steroid use. What does it mean for the current all-time home run king?

Finally, super-agent Scott Boras believes MLB is a “myopic” world where the realities of the continued slide in the economy don’t play a part in the free agency market. Is Boras right, wrong, or is the truth somewhere in the middle.

Remember, tune into XM Satellite Radio 175 at 11:40pm ET, 8:40pm PT to hear the discussion.
