If A Tree Falls In A Forest, Does It Make A Sound?

As the headline intimates, an announced crowd of only 16,003 showed up at the ballpark to witness Ken Griffey Jr.’s 600th career homer.

How do you know it’s time to get rid of a professional franchise? When fans in that city care so little about the game that they don’t even show up to watch Hall of Fame players from other teams achieve milestones. You want to tell me fans in Florida have been screwed over too many times to care about the Marlins? That’s fine, I’ll accept that. But if fans don’t even like baseball enough to be a witness to history then it’s time to close up shop in Miami. Enough is enough; baseball doesn’t belong in Florida. Never did, never will.
