recent scores depressing. 2009's attendance depressing. 10 teams in mlb history have relocated. with a new stadium in the works in miami, they are off life support. as are the come back from the dead devil rays. now, we are on the clock. that dark cloud doesn't make a hoot of difference to readers of this board. for marginal paying customers, however, it's a deal killer. naturally, we will probably be last in the league this year in attendance. thanks, lew. all has been kinda predictable to this point. - stadium sucks, we can't get a new stadium we'll move, we'll move close, can't build a stadium close, we really tried, team depleted to save payroll, attendance way down ... - the first of the 10 to move was boston braves to milwaukee in 1953. most recent, of course, les expos. characteristic of the movers is dwindling home attendance in the waning years of the franchise as fans exit a bad movie. 5 of the 10, as one would expect, were last in league attendance both of their last 2 years (boston braves, sl browns, first washington senators, ny giants, les expos). 2 of the remaining 5 were last in attendance the last year but not second to last year (milwaukee braves & phil a's). thanks to indians and the mistake by the lake, kc a's and second washington senators were next to last in their final year. in their second to last year, kc also could look to cleveland to draw worse and senators, surprisingly, on 1970, in their second to last year before texas called, were 8th out of 12 in the a.l. that leaves brooklyn dodgers. not a myth was their support in the face of relocation. in '57, last year, 5th out of 8 in n.l. in '56, 2nd out of 8.
