Looking up the old boxscores this morning to see the Braves won last night 8-0 over Miami to improve their record to a MLB best 8-1.
Which led me to Deadspin... for those of you who haven't read it, or don't peruse that site, I've ganked some of their pictures to show you here....
Paid attendance was announced at 13,381. Actual attendance was lower.
Now this is a park where you can take your kids and not worry about any drunks cursing or throwing up on your family.
lotsa leg room behind the dugout...
I wonder if the beer sales and cotton candy guys get a subsidy to work there?
On the plus side, those four fans in the outfield each got a Braves home run ball. No fighting, just everyone wait your turn.
Now this is not the fans fault. You can't blame them for any of this. It's not a baseball area... plus there are two very big idiots to blame. The first is owner Jeff Lauria who never met a player he couldn't sell.
Second, and biggest idiot of all is Bud Selig. For giving Lauria a second team after what he did to the Expos.
It won't take 4 seconds for lauria to put the For Sale sign up after the 2014 season, the earliest he is allowed to do so under his stadium agreement.
And then maybe, maybe, the Marlins will have a reason for fans to go to the park other than to meditate in peace and quiet.
