Either it was the Marlins or the Rays, but one MLB team in Florida (a few yrs ago when I still followed baseball) had something like an average attendence of about 10 or 15% of total stadium capacity.

it was the Marlins.  Even when they bought a bunch of big name players and won a championship, they still did not fill the stadium.

They won a penant? :doh: Yeah, I think I remember Atlanta probably robbed Dan Ugla (or whatever the hell his name was) from y'all afterwards, and then he immediately helped the Braves lose a game every other day single-handedly with his new girly-man fielding techniques. Flubbing easy grounders, overthrowing 1st base and homeplate, etc. And he couldn't get a hit to save his life. Probably had a batting avg of .000 his first several months. MY GAWD, he was awful.

Freddi Gonzalez is OOOOOOUT in Atlanta. Haven't liked him since even before the old coach Bobby Cox retired. There might be hope for them yet. Like I said, and they fully realize it too, if they keep losing EVERY DAMN NIGHT OF THE WORLD, they aren't gonna pack the living shit out of the new stadium when it first opens and they won't rake in all the money they'll NEED to keep them out of debt.

The Braves have picked up their game and are no longer have the worst record in MLB, their tied for worst  :lolsign:

Their power numbers are still horrible, they have 21 HRs and the next lowest team has 36.  The league leaders have 70 HRs and the league average is 53.   :WTF: did the move the outfield fence half way up the bleachers or they really that bad.  :raincloud:

Yeah, I actually watched the last maybe 5 innings of a game Saturday afternoon I think. They won by 5 or so runs. BUT... only because the Marlins fucked up royally at all the perfectly wrong times. Their 5 or 6 errors gave the game to Atlanta. I guess Fox SportSouth has picked up coverage of the Braves again, but it doesn't mean I'm gonna start watching again. Noticed they have Francour back on the roster. LOLWUT? I guess they're TRYING to make sure they suck now for some reason. He managed to bounce one over the fence in centerfield for a double, but it was still shitty hitting cuz anyone else would've golfed it out for a homerun. Rehiring bums like him is the reason they DESERVE to lose.

Just a FYI - The Braves are still the worst team in baseball at this point in the season and it doesn't look like it is going to change.

HELL HAS FROZEN OVER!

The Chicago Cubs are going to the fucking World Series! HOLY SHIT! This, coupled with the bleak looking election right around the corner... pretty sure these are signs of the end times that the Book of Revelations talked about. Stock up on canned goods, bottled water, and fuel. The apocalypse is upon us.

Something none of us thought we'd see before we died...



I know lots of people in Chicago, and they're all going absolutely ape-shit bonkers tonight. Congrats to the Cubs and all the fans in Sweet Home Chicago. Been a long time coming. Y'all deserve it more than anyone.

Im not a big pro baseball fan, but I've always liked college. Going to school at UNCW was what kinda got me into it. It's pretty cool that a school without a football team consistently has a ranked baseball team. I saw them beat UNC in person one time. Here are the current rankings:
