Less than 30,000 at a potential elimination playoff game?
I know I am beating a dead horse here...
But less than 30,000 at a playoff game?
Yes, I know Tropicana Field isn't located in the best place.
Yes, I know times are tough.
Yes, I know the start time was early.
This Rays team is one of the most exciting teams in baseball and they are on the verge of elimination.
28,299 showed up!
I'm not saying "Standing Room Only" at the Trop.
But have 30,000 fans. You are a major league city. The team is a playoff team for the third time in four years.
They should be the talk of baseball.
Instead? They get fewer than 29,000 for a do or die game.
Good for those who showed up. But you never know how long this great run will last in St. Pete.
Why not go and savor it NOW?
