Does Miami know they have a baseball team?

Tonight the Rockies are playing at the Florida Marlins. When I turned on the television before first pitch I thought they were showing a stadium shot from earlier only to realize it was live shot of all the empty seats. I’ve seen sparse crowds at games before but Marlins baseball games seem to take the cake. This photo is not from tonight’s game but very closely resembles the “crowd” for the game in Miami tonight:
Luckily for the Marlins they are opening a new retractable roof stadium in 2012. Maybe that will inject some enthusiasm into South Florida. If it doesn’t, it’s fair to wonder whether Miami even deserves the Marlins franchise.
