4/20 Mets @ Phillies


Recommended Posts

Meh...was this worthy of a thread? :confused

It's April 20th.

No team is looking at the playoff picture right now.

Right now, I really only care about our games.

 

I start scoreboard watching around late-July / August, if we're in it.

That's rediculous.Real fans always watch the standings and want their team in first place.

I'm a "real fan."

I care...when we play.

 

Who cares about the standings at this point?

 

We still have 16 h2h matchups with the Mets.

 

The season doesn't end tonight, it ends a good 5 months from now.

How does it not make me a "real fan" for not caring if we're in 1st place, at the end of the night (in mid-April)?

I think it's safe to say virtually anyone active on this site is a "real" Marlins fan, regardless of opinion on this topic.

 

That being said, in my opinion this is an important topic. We know most South Florida fans are "fair weather fans" - I'm not talking about those of us on this site, I'm talking about the casual fan. And the reality is, the casual fan tends to base a lot of their interest on things like sound bites on the local 11:00 sports news.

 

The longer we can stay in first place, the more positive media coverage there will be, the more positive media coverage, the more interest the casual fan will have. This can translate into higher attendance. Who knows, that could even impact future payroll decisions. For the average team, standings in April are irrelevant; however, as stated above, I think they are important for the Marlins.

 

Bottom line: go Phillies!! (just retook the lead 5-4)

 

P.S.- although it was covered in another thread, pretty cool to have Peter Gammons say Hanley Ramirez is the best player in the league!!

For what it's worth...I do agree with what you just said. I've personally never looked at it that way, but now that you say it, it could very well be true.
