If you rebuild it, people will not come.

The one constant through all the years, Ray, has been rebuilding in certain markets. The Yankees and Cardinals have rolled by like an army of steamrollers. The plans of the Pirates and Royals have been erased like a blackboard, rebuilt, and erased again. But rebuilding in Pittsburgh and Kansas City has marked the time. This field, this game, is a part of our past, Ray. It reminds us of all that once was horribly mismanaged, and that will be again. Oh people will stay away, Ray. People will stay away in droves.
