The annual post labor day weekday crowd shots. Still less embarrassing than the Rays situation. 

Yep the Rays sure are embarrassing...

Did you see they brought up yet another highly touted prospect the other day?

I guess they aren't as worried about service time as a small market team like the O's.

Talk about changing the subject…

Back on topic, the O’s drew under 5,000 fans each of the last two nights.   Now that’s embarrassing.

Sure was.  Nothing embarrassing about the Rays.

They are winning and making a healthy profit.

To try and throw shade at them to make yourself feel better about the state of the O's is pretty sad.

Guess what team the Rays were playing when they set their record for low attendance earlier this season.

It is embarrassing that the Rays are a perennially good team and yet draw so poorly.   It’s not the team that should be embarrassed, but the region doesn’t really deserve to have a major league team if they can’t support a winning team better than that.   

And this thread is in the MLB section and the O’s weren’t even mentioned in the OP, so how is anyone throwing shade at them to feel better about the O’s?

Are you kidding me? It's not embarrassing that a team that was literally JUST in the World Series and has comfortably been in first place for months now can't draw more than 8K fans a night? That's absolutely pathetic. And make no mistake, a lot of those numbers are juiced from Red Sox and Yankees fans completely overtaking that stadium when they play there. Sorry if that struck a nerve for some reason but it's true. 

I didn't say anything about the Orioles nor did the OP. I'm not sure if you watch the Orioles but that's clearly the Pirates stadium up there big guy. It's also hilarious that you think the Rays would've promoted Wander Franco if they were in the Os position and that the Os wouldn't have if they were in the Rays position. Must be nice living in your fantasy world. The Rays should take a bow for having the 26th highest payroll in baseball vs the O's 29th. Really labor friendly organization where the players should always expect to be paid handsomely....

RE:  Pirates, that sucks to see but it's not surprising.  The Pirates are bad and have been for awhile.  School is back in session, it's a school night.  Of course, Covid...while there are a lot of people who DGAF about being in crowds and being outside, there are still some who don't want to go out.

Add that all up, it's not too surprising.

It does suck that the Rays are always winning but never draw.  That region doesn't deserve a team if they can't support it, I agree with @Frobby.  However, part of me wonders if they'd draw if they played in a better ballpark, too.  

Is CoC in here beating the service clock dead horse again?  Surprising.

And Pittsburgh sports fans are ready for the start of the NFL season and hockey is just right around the corner. The next time most of them think about the Pirates again is next April. 

And I'm not even sure there are 800 fans in attendance from that photo much less 8,000.

I went to the O’s 22-7 debacle today, and I doubt there were 5,000 people there.  Official attendance was 8,474 but the crowd looked about half that size.   

The 8,474 number is paid attendance right?  So that includes season tickets.

Yes.   A lot of no shows today.   Probably stayed home to watch the NFL opening weekend.  The O’s celebrated it by allowing Toronto to put up a football score.

Yeah, the low set on Wednesday was 7965 so t he season ticket total is probably a few hundred less than that.

    • Cardinals were smart enough not to resign Pujols when he hit his 30’s knowing he would never be able to match the production from the first decade of his career. With the way the Orioles have operated during the Angelos era they almost certainly resign a player of that caliber. It’s a mistake you can’t make when you’re not the Yankees or Dodgers. The Cardinals usually avoid these kind of crippling moves and that keeps them competitive. With Elias hopefully we see that with the O’s. 
    • Marte, who may considered the best CF option via FA, was just signed by the Mets.
    • On the contrary, it is completely true. The team will have ebbs and flows, based on random chance And misfortune such as is happening to Kjested right now, But if you avoid long-term contracts, all of which are stupid, trade your guys at peak value and restock the farm, and there’s no reason why you can’t continually be a positive team. The Cardinals do it and they never have a single digit draft choice they always draft in the high teens, and yet they still have a good team over and over.
    • Going into 2009, Tillman was BA’s no. 22 prospect, Matusz no. 25, Arrieta no. 67.   Britton wasn’t ranked yet but was no. 63 the next year.  Brad Bergesen was the reigning Eastern League pitcher of the year.   David Hernandez had led the league. In strikeouts.   So, it was a more impressive group than your post suggests.   
    • Even worse living with the knowledge that Cardinals owner Bill DeWitt Jr. could have been the Orioles owner all this time, but thanks to Peter Angelos outbidding him it never happened. 
    • Nothing happens til it happens, but can we glean anything meaningful from what the insiders say?   ”Listening to offers” means nothing. Does anyone NOT listen to offers? However, that’s probably indicates less interest than a term like… ”Dangling.” What does that mean? Is GM A calling up GM B and saying,” hey, I got this hot guy, and he can be yours! All I need is XX.” Is GM A being coy and hitting that MAAAAAAYBE he’ll listen…? Regardless, it probably indicates more desire to trade, but maybe not as much as… “Eager to deal” or “seeking the best matchup” which is where GM A is calling up everyone in the Rolodex and saying,” Have I got a deal for you! AND if you ACT NOW…no? Well, how about……etc etc” All  those terms indicate at least partially dealing from a position of “I don’t have to” “I’m in no hurry” “if you don’t, someone else will,” and so on. But pity the guys who… ”Are willing to eat most of the contract…” the fools who rush in, and then find it veeeeery expensive to rush back out.. poor San Diego would be less poor if they hadn’t flung all that cash at Mr Hosmer, but they did, and he has been smiling ever since…and they..” are willing to eat most of his contract” Anyway, where does that leave the Orioles? We’re listening. Sure we are. Everyone listens except your cat in the backyard who doesn’t want to come in yet. We are “dangling”…. That means we’re listening a bit more earnestly, but still it’s our call. Nothing will happen unless it’s very good for the Bmore boys. So let’s see what kind of horse trader Mike is, and what can he bring home in return for the shiny bauble he is dangling…
    • I think we are going to have to get some favorable results from our own young pitchers to improve significantly in 2022. Last year was a bottom 20% outcome in that regard compared to the range of possible outcomes from that group.    If things break the other way in 2022 we could see a lot more wins.   But you can’t just expect that to happen given their performance to date.
