Lance Lysowski's story in DK about last night's game was the first time I've seen a player explicitly address the empty stands:

“I’m really excited about next year,” Cervelli told DKPittsburghSports.com before leaving the clubhouse Tuesday night. “It’s really disappointing where we are right now. Sometimes I feel embarrassed because the stadium, no one comes. The guys are still playing hard and still playing baseball. For next year, this team is going to be different because the pitching is incredible. I hope I can be part of this for the next three, four years or whatever.”

Cervelli's feelings are understandable. To the players, a sparse audience shows the fans feel the team is not relevant. That could seem embarrassing when compared to the audience in other parks they play in against teams in contention. I just hope he doesn't blame the fans and rather looks to TBMTIB as Freese did in ST to point out it is their responsibility to put a competitive team on the field and prioritize winning so that the fans will want to come out and watch.

I hope the vets around next year don't go through the motions of playing discouraged feeling there is not hope for them as a team.  I've know many men and women who were working for a company that was just going through the motions as an employer and they did the same before moving on to greener pastures.

That is pathetic and a total embarrassment considering it was Clemente Day.

Agreed.  I did not even know until it was too late that it was Clemente Day.  Little or no publicity in the Burgh about it.  How nice it would have been if the Bucs could have all worn 21 for the game.  If not that have his wife or son(s) in attendance and have a nice pre-game ceremony or instead of the pierogi race and the other fan based between innings crap play Clemente highlights on the scoreboard in their place.  Yep, they missed the boat on that one for sure.

Roberto’s wife and sons were in attendance at the game. ATT Network showed several photos of them, including one which they took prior to the game at the Clemente Statue outside PNC Park. They also showed photos of the Clemente Museum in Pittsburgh. One of these days I will have to visit that place.

On Labor Day I had quests from SF Bay Area.  Moving to Pittsburgh to work for Google (could have chosen any of the google towns including the Bay and Valley areas and Boston). Needless to say - attendance was embarrassing. 

I talked about how just a couple years before, the place was sold out.  Told them about the owner and his mouth-piece-GM giving Pirate fans the finger while owner’s wealth quadruples over a 5 year period. I told them how Pirate fans are returning the salute.

My quests had the fans back - “your owner doesn’t deserve a team.”

19,515 last night competing against high school football.

season average is 19,032 for total of 1,351,315 with ten games left.

Several good promotions on tap so I can see them getting over 1.5 million but falling short of 1.6 million.

Also, no way that Oakland, Tampa or Miami will catch them.

I'm surprised, though. That's a lot better than the 9,000 showing on Clemente Day game.

just a comparison, the Cards attendance for a Wednesday afternoon game vs. the Bucs was over 39,000.

I didn't see much of today's game, but I was surprised the Cardinals had so many empty seats the last two nights. They're a playoff team, even if they're last in line at the moment.

Can you imagine "Cy" Tallion pitching at PNC Park with that many people or should I say a full house?  A perfect game no-hitter with 90 pitches.

they might have had a lot of no shows, announced attendance for Tuesday was over 37,000.  The Cards are third in attendance this season averaging over 41,000 per game. Only trail Dodgers and Yankees.
