Haha, nice, I like all three of those.

I'll add...Detroit Tigers: Our mayor is a joke, foreclosure is at an all-time high, we're the fattest city in America...forget all that for 3 hours, come watch the game (and hell, why not buy a couple hotdogs while you're here, you deserve it!).

Team Slogans for all teams.

Some of my favorites:

"You Can Take the Devil out of the Rays, But It Still Won't Get Rocco Baldelli off the Disabled List"


"Ask Not What Carl Pohlad Can Do for You. Ask What You Can Do for Carl Pohlad"
(Twins)

"Good Seats Are Still Available"
(Royals)

"Pitching Free -- Since 1993!"
(Rangers)

"We'll Be Lucky to Win 70 Games, But the Concessions at the New Ballpark Should be Great"
(Nats)

"Fifteen Losing Seasons and Counting, But We Didn't Have a Single Active Player Named in the Mitchell Report"
(Pirates)

The new Cleveland Gladiators just started playing in the Arena Football League, and are suffering from a definite lack of public awareness. Their actual slogan:

Cleveland Gladiators -- the games have begun!

Local radio station here recently changed ownership and went to a format playing the greatest hits from multiple decades. Their initial slogan was: "We play anything!"

I guess people must have pointed out that this suggested that maybe they had no discernable taste, and a few days later it was changed to "We play all the hits"
"I don't want to play golf. When I hit a ball, I want someone else to chase it."

Los Angeles Dodgers: "Where a high payroll and clubhouse friction give you consistent mediocrity."

Perhaps Torre will be provide reason to change the slogan...one can only hope.

Ummm... no. These are true advertisements.
0-3 to 4-3. Worst choke in the history of baseball. Enough said.
