    Only 200?!!??

    Truly taking Bob Uecker’s “nobody’s listening anyways” line to heart, the Marlins were playing in front of literally, almost nobody. That’s according to reports out of the Miami Herald. Man, we’re talking less than some of my high school games. This is brutal:

    The announced attendance Monday at Dolphin Stadium was 12,345, but the crowd was estimated at about 1,000 and after a 40-minute rain delay in the seventh, there were probably 200 fans left in a stadium that seats more than 67,000 for baseball.

    ‘’Yeah that’s very [tough],'’ Olsen said of the tiny crowd. “We go into New York and Philadelphia and there’s 40,000 fans and we come here and there’s two. It’s very tough.'’

    If a player homers in Dolphin Stadium and nobody is there to witness it, did it really happen? Just something for you to ponder. And yeah, that’s gotta be embarrassing for these guys. When your major league crowds are smaller than your minor league crowds, it can’t be too fun.

    Does the 200 include the broadcasters and print media?

    A new stadium isn't going to do anything. They need to relocate along with the Tampa Bay Devil Rays.

    The have like a dozen good, young, exciting guys worth watching. No, they don't need a new stadium. They either A) need new/real fans or B) go somewhere that would like to watch a rising team.


    And then C) fire the guy who thought it was a good idea to get rid of Joe Girardi and D) re hire Girardi and E) introduce Taxi Cab Cabrera to Jenny Craig.
