I would add:
It's hot, humid and rainy here during the summer months.
People prefer to be inside.
No public transport (for practical purposes)...gotta have a car to go to a game.
Lots of other things to do.
The Dolphins sell out. But that's 8 (count em) games. Much nicer weather.
Naturally, the Marlins ownership is doing the ''build me a stadium'' thing, which is also pretty sickening.
The Latin fans here are into baseball and the metropolitan area is large...but things are just not working out business-wise.
