Cubs/Marlins next wk - who has home field advantage?

When the Cubs head down to Florida to play the Marlins next week, it could be the Cubs who have home-field advantage, at least the way I see it.

Attendance lately at the Marlins' games has been around 10,000 - officially, anyway. But according to the Tribune, only about 400 fans were on hand when the first pitch was thrown in a recent game. Assuming thousands of Cub fans show up, as they've been doing at other ballparks around the league, these games could end up being like home games for the Cubs, and give them one more advantage as they play a team that talent-wise, isn't in the Cubs' league.

Sure beats what the Brewers have to do: head to Atlanta for four games against a team with a winning record that's still nominally in the wild-card race. I hope the Brewers have to listen to lots of "Tomahawk Chops" while they're down there!
