Yeah. That's always been an issue with them. Even when they had some really good teams, there were always good seats available. When their team falls off, the attendance is dismal. Years ago, I used to go to a lot of their games and the stadium was nice before they converted it for football. They don't have the money some teams do so you often see things like the Olson deal to Atlanta. The Braves gave up 4 highly rated prospects to get him and their farm system is now ranked near the bottom on the league. That being said, you don't get to the playoffs because you've got some good players in AAA. The Braves were able to replace Freeman at 1st with Olson, but had to take a big hit in the minors. The A's, as usual, got fat on inexpensive, young players that they can afford and hope will develop into stars.....wash, rinse, repeat. It was probably a good deal for both teams. They really need to get out of the Coliseum (don't know what they're calling it these days). They wanted to move down to San Jose, but the Giants blocked it. They should just relocate to a place that will support them. They have a really good organization that's run on a shoestring budget.
