Wtf lol.

How pathetic are the A's and their fans? Lol, even KC drew more

In their defense, that stadium is just an awful place to watch a game. If they had a nice park like the Giants do they would draw many more fans.

This too.

James, what did the stick draw back in the day when the Giants played well? I bet more that Oakland, and Candlestick was a s**thole for baseball. Even more than it is a s**thole for football

You guys got AT&T in 2000 right? 1999 yearly attendance was 2,078,399/25,659 a game
But, WOW in general at how high SF baseball attendance is now compared to what it used to be

I agree somewhat but not totally. My memory tells me that the stick drew over 2 million way back in the day when the Giants were playing well. That venue was much worse for baseball than Oakland...not even close.

This wasnt a comparison between Giants and A's fans. My point was simply that they would draw many more fans if they had a nice venue. Pretty much every single team that has built a new stadium has had a nice spike in attendance.

So, using that logic, the Marlins need to build 4 more stadiums?

Yes, no doubt the park plays a huge difference. Candlestick is an effort to get to for a game. Can you imagine the dedication it took for Giant fans to get out to this place day after day, night after night, when you consider where it is, traffic, weather, access to/from, and everything else? All I am saying is that the Coliseum for A's fans is VERY easy to get to/from. It may not be the greatest venue, but the weather is generally very good, and it has easy in/out access. The A's should draw much better than they do.

LOL Good thing I said"pretty much every team". The Marlins are the exception to any logical rule.

Yep. I watched many many sun filled games at the Stick during the day. Night games... just horrible 90% of the time.

Kansas City draws quite a few fans based on their stadium alone. Kauffman Stadium is awesome.

Agreed. Ive probably been to around 30+ games at Kauffman, and always enjoyed it. The Royals usually lost, but it was cheap, and the stadium is nice. Im used to the version before it was refurbished though. I miss the way it used to look.

lol I dont know why so many people get all offended by the bandwagoners. It just means youre winning. Just ignore them.
Giants players' winning share for winning the World Series = $377,003 each...(yes, Melky gets a share)

highest since the '06 Cards...expanded playoffs helped of course

So does this also mean the team ownership is obligated to give Melky a ring? I had no problem with the team giving Bengie one back in 2010.
