    Fans stop going to th e game & wasting your hard earned money ,this will force management into a trade ,that is one of the problems as long as the money keeps coming in nothing will be done ,they don’t care as long as the cash keeps going in their pockets ,please use your heads for a change & stay home don’t buy the tickets !

    Love the “Bottom 3 offensive plays”. Three outs from the same inning.
