Nate Silver crunches the numbers and finds that fans prefer PNC Park -- "The winner by a country mile...." -- to every other ball yard!
McClatchy was the worst owner in baseball, the residents of Pittsburgh and Allegheny County did not want to fund the stadium and it took political dealing to get the unwanted stadium built.

It seems, then, that the Baseball Gods haven't totally damned the team and the town.
