ESPN's Mike & Mike weigh in on Rays attendance



mike.jpgThe comments about low baseball attendance in Tampa Bay made by the Rays' Evan Longoria and David Price are making waves far beyond Central Florida. ESPN Radio's Mike & Mike spent a decent chunk of time on their show this morning discussing the subject, with Mike Greenberg criticizing the market and backing Longoria and Price. Golic, meantime, tore into Longoria and Price for calling out the fans. I'd run some of the comments here, but it's easier to just link to audio because the whole conversation is worth a listen.  Click here and search for the box where the two discuss the topic. Be forewarned: If you're a Rays fan and didn't like Longoria's comments, you will be highly perturbed by the comments made by Greenberg, who thinks baseball does not belong in Tampa Bay. Golic, meantime, slammed the players, saying they have no right to tell people how to spend their money.
