RE: The 2010 pittsburgh pirates, finishing there 18th consecutive losing season.

RE: The tampa bay rays, 2008 AL champs, 3rd straight winning season.

 

The  tampa bay rays are on the verge of clinching a playoff spot, and no one is there too see it. THEY ARE GIVING AWAY TICKETS!!! what a shame. all i can think is what if this team was in pittsburgh?? wich led me too some research.as sad as the 2010 pirates are we drew 1,600,000 fans this year and averaged an astounding close too 20,000 a game (astounding for the teams record and recent history). The rays on the other hand  drew over 1,800,000 for an average of close to 23,000.   Basically my point is, Sports in florida is a joke. 12,000 fans show up for a potential play off clinching game. i was at  a couple bucco games this month that were close to 20,000 and we're 40 + games under five hundred.  Pat yourself on the back pirates fans. I still think we are one of the best baseball fan bases in the league. Tampa,its pretty bad when your star player basically calls out fans, and the team is giving away tickets during a pennant race in september.
