Bought these tickets for the Blue Jays game last June. I don't recall the score but the Marlins got slaughtered. The ballpark was 2/3 full for a Saturday inter league game - so the fans got what they wanted and still don't show up.
Couldn't complain about our seats, though. Section 16 is amazing. There aren't many seats per row at all which made getting in and out easy. You can even see the field from the concourse area. Just so you know, row 1 isn't the first row and in fact, is maybe 13-15 rows from the field since the Diamond Seats sit in front of this section. Watching the game from behind the net is a little weird at first but we got used to it after an inning or so.

The Marlins Park traffic is a headache after the game. The ballpark is in a sketchy Cuban neighborhood rather than a downtown landscape. I think the easiest way to get there would be to take the Metro Rail to Culmer Station and then take the shuttle they have set up for fans. It would have been really beautiful if they had a spot for the ballpark with Key Biscayne as the backdrop, kind of like the Heat arena. But they chose the former site of the Orange Bowl. There are 6 surface lots and 4 parking garages on site, so there is plenty of parking as long as you're willing to battle the traffic.

To give you an idea what the view of the field is like from section 16, here is a Youtube video shot from there during a Marlins exhibition game at Marlins Park.
