So if it's Florida vs. Tampa Bay in the World Series, how many fans show per game? 15,000? 20,000 maybe?

Even better is to just consider the fact that MLB would have to showcase their World Series at the Tropicana Dome.

White Sox need to start losing so the Twins can make the playoffs with a .500 record.

If they hold off and have the Series after the new year and start the games at 9 or 10 am - they just might fill the stadium. However, they would need every usher in the league.

I'd like to see the All-Star Game there, if only for a rousing game of Catwalk Derby.

well.. if they would schedule the games to be done before 6pm.. they might be able to pack the stadium with the old people in florida that are normally asleep by 6:30
but they will take a big hit on the senior citizen discount

Friendly reminder for you fantasy nerds that Jay Bruce (he who mashed the shit out of the ball in AAA at a .364/10/39/8stl -- in 40-something games -- clip) has been called up by Cincy. He's currently available in Yahoo format without having to use a waiver wire (listed as NA).

Dilemma: that would potentially conflict with the Early Bird....

I like how you know who this guy is but didn't know who Jesse Litsch was.


I predict you will say something about him playing for Toronto.

Hell if we hadn't gotten Quentin, who knows where we'd be in the division. It's nice to be in 1st with a 3 game lead with only 6 games over .500, but I'm still not feeling great about the season so far.

What a shitshow at safeco.

First Dice-K gets yanked with an injury.
Then on a check swing call, 3B ump calls it no swing, and then points at Lugo playing ss and tosses him.
Tito comes out, pulls Lugo off, goes back out asks the ump what happened. The ump tells him. Tito says something to him and then gets tossed a second later.

I got a chance to see him during a AAA game earlier in the year. It's amazing the Reds didn't call him up sooner. 3 for 3 tonight in his debut.

Still being reported as shoulder fatigue; will likely miss his next start. But, hey, at least he didn't pick up the loss.

Sounds like he'll now be a regular customer for that contraption they hook Papelbon up to every day.

Goofy ending for the Twins last night, but they ended up getting the W eventually. It's just too bad Blackburn went from almost getting a complete game shutout to a no decision.

Looked like the umpires were playing favorites with the Yankees in the ninth inning.It was pouring rain with New York at bat and the umps refused to call for the tarp but as soon as the half inning was over out comes the tarp and Trembley comes out and argues about it.He should have came out with Girardi and both could have argued about it or come out and make a pitching change.The playing field should be the same for both teams.How the hell are the Orioles suppose to see the ball in the field but they wait for it too stop raining so the Yankees can see everything as clear as a bell.At least the Orioles won the game.

I agree that the game should have beens stopped with one or two outs in the 9th but I wouldn't say they were playing favorites. Girardi came out and complained when his team was batting because his hitters wouldn't be able to hit the ball in the pouring rain too. Yet the game continued. At that point you could make the argument that they were playing favorites to the O's. Either way, as soon as it starts raining hard they should put a stop to the game because it sucks for both teams. The playing field should be even for both teams and yeah its easier to field a ball when its not raining but its also easier to hit.

Now when they had a very similar situation last year they were indeed screwing the O's over then.
