PiratesIn looking ahead to all 30 clubs in Major League Baseball, David is nearly complete, having  wound his way through all the American League with the AL East (see the Yankees - Red Sox - Rays - Orioles - Jays), the AL Central (see the Royals, the White Sox, theTwins, the Indians and Detroit Tigers) tha AL West with (Angels - A's - Rangers, - Seattle Mariners). and NL East (Mets - Nationals - Marlins - Phillies - Braves). With the season fast approaching, NL Central capsules will be coming fast. Now in the NL Central (see Brewers - Cubs - Cardinals - Reds). This morning, it's the club that has been a cellar-dweller, not just in the standings but in attendance, the Pittsburgh Pirates -- Maury Brown


Team: The Pittsburgh Pirates

2009 Total Attendance: 1.57 million

2009 Average Attendance & Sell-Thru: 19,478 (51% Sell-Thru)

2009 Record: 62-99, 2nd Worst in MLB

2010 Total Attendance: 1.61 million

2010 Average Attendance & Sell-Thru: 19,918 (52% Sell-Thru)

2010 Record: 57-105, Worst in MLB

Looking ahead to 2011……

Notable offseason addition/subtractions: None

Interleague LY: Chicago White Sox & Cleveland Indians

Interleague TY: Boston Red Sox, Detroit Tigers, & Baltimore Orioles

April/May Games: 13 in April, 12 in May in 2011 vs. 9 in April and 15 in May in 2010

Holidays: Home 4/24 Easter 5/8 Mother’s Day 7/4 Independence Day 9/5 Labor Day Road 6/19 Father’s Day

Overall Outlook: The Pirates ranked 27th in MLB in 2010. The team continues to be one of the worst on the field, but has the #1 pick in June’s draft to show for their performance. The team has never won more than 75 games in its 10 years at PNC Park. Like other NL central peers they hit the interleague jackpot by hosting the Red Sox. Season tickets price will remain the same as they have for 9 years and the team has added day of game pricing for the first time which is a step in the right direction. Additionally, the organization add several  concerts and fireworks to help drive their attendance. It looks like there smallest plan that has the Red Sox is 10 games.  I think the team overplayed their hand as Sox fans will head to the secondary market as 10 is too many around just 1 Red Sox game.  Even with the Sox in their favor, the team seems to be behind the entire division again. The team’s rebuilding process now has a 2nd piece in Pedro Alvarez. I think the team will have major problems selling the public on their continued rebuilding. I think the Pirates will be one of the few teams with a decrease in ticket sales even with the Sox. I think the team will be last in all of baseball in attendance as they’ll be outsold by the A’s, Marlins, and Indians.
