Ding ding ding! We have a winner. And don't think it can't happen because PNC Park would be an awesome AAA stadium if it came to that. A fan is loyal even when their team sucks. If you want to stop going to games, stop. But don't preach to me that I need to stop going to. If I want to go a baseball game, I'll go to a damned baseball game!

I live out of state, but if am in PA at least once a year, and when ever possible I try to attend a game, I was actuly able to see two last year. I don't care how bad they are, well I care, but that wont stop me from going to a game and support the team I love

Screw it.......

Who is telling anybody on here not to attend games? B&G stated "I won't be critical if fans want to go though thats their right". For those who want to go to games, GO FOR IT. Knock your socks off.

My God. Nobody is "telling" anybody to do anything.

Why do that when we can pay money to the Burnitz's and Hernandez's of the league?

Nice to know my tax dollars are going to that ball park with the promises of a better ball club. Be thankful you live out of state.

15 YEARS and counting................"WE WILL"

Unlike the NFL, not only does our ownership suck, but the league itself is horribly managed. Those odds are not good for a franchise such as ours. If your team stinks in NFL as least you know you have a shot with the way the league is managed.....not the case with MLB.

New ownership and a cap in MLB will change my mind when it comes to that sport. Until then, enjoy much of what we have seen the last 15 years.

I agree with this completely, the MLB is a total joke until they instill a Salary Cap
