Unless tickets really are that expensive down there.


I don't know about that. In Arizona, during the Cubs/D'Backs series last post-season, they had a hard time selling tickets.

actually a really good idea. most people south of dc and east of the mississippi all root for the braves. another team down there would definitely be a good thing.

at least we know its not just the rays, no one cares about the marlins either.


Expansion is the last thing MLB should do.
The southeast seems to really like their college baseball anyways. Can't we just leave them with that?

The three teams that are down there already have trouble filling a stadium. No need to add a fourth.

Atleast in Toronto, we actually have bandwagoner jumpers who will go to the games once the team starts winning. That phenomenon doesn't seem to exist in Tampa...nobody cares.

That's really laughable. How unfortunate that this team is playing so well, for the first time in a decade, and nobody will even show up to witness it live.
