More people watched the Fish in person Wednesday than on TV

“Golden age”

Just a reminder: Jeffrey Loria wouldn’t be owning the Marlins if not for the Worst Commissioner in the History of Sports.

In other words, as the Herald reported, 0.8 percent of all TV households in Miami-Dade County and Broward County were watching the Marlins get shutout by the Atlanta Braves. Nielsen, which handles television ratings, lists a total of 1,621,130 TV households in the Miami/Fort Lauderdale market.

That means, based on Nielsen’s total available households in the Miami/Fort Lauderdale market, roughly 12,969 homes were watching the Marlins game on Wednesday night. For comparison, the Marlins announced attendance at Wednesday night’s game was 13,810.

No team in baseball recorded a rating below 1.0 all last season. It took the Marlins less than two weeks.

  1. As funny as it is to see Loria just eat it, its just as awful to watch it happen. I dont see them keeping Stanton around past July 31st, his value is going to nosedive and theyll realize that. I just hope he’s moved outside of the NL.

  2. The unfortunate thing for Stanton is that he’s not having a good year so far. Obviously that will change, but it must be hard to get motivated when you know your team (rather, the front office) has no interest in competing.
