Should TheShark attend tomorrow night's game at Great American Ballpark? Some factors to consider while placing your vote:

- The Pirates are 0-3 with TheShark in attendance this season, with two of the worst SP outings of the entire season by Snell and Gorzo in the last series here in Cincinnati, and tonight's brilliant performance by Capps. Additionally, the Reds are 5-0 when I've been there every time this year, with wins against the Indians and Braves.

- All of those to the lowly REDS.

- TheShark's frustration levels.

- TheShark's blood pressure.

- The humiliation of being seen as a Pirates fan in a different environment after all of these embarrassing losses in this city.

I am awaiting your much-needed input.

As someone that doesn't live in a city with a major professional sports team I say hell yes, you go. As a fan of the Pirates I think you would have a better time watching the Family Guy marathon on TBS tomorrow night.

Well i also agree to go but for a different reason.
Volquez against the Pirates without McClouth and only two days before his 25th birthday we might see the game of Edison Volquez' life.

But as a side note thanks for telling me about the family guy marathon tomorrow night.I gotta go put it is the TIVO.

To pay good money to sit and watch a team that could finish the night in last place, whose pitching staff is a train wreck, whose right side of the infield is barely hitting its own weight, and has trouble keeping its players off the DL?

Hey, it's your call . . .

While making your decision, consider the following:

1. Are the tickets free?

2. How expensive is the beer? This is important to celebrate a Bucco victory (hopefully) or drown your sorrows (likely). :D

The one constant through all the years, has been baseball. America has rolled by like an army of steamrollers. It has been erased like a blackboard, rebuilt and erased again. But baseball has marked the time. This field, this game: it's a part of our past. It reminds of us of all that once was good and it could be again. - Terence Mann

I'll take bad baseball over good TV any day of the year.

I say go, just to watch Volquez. The Family Guy marathon is tempting, but isn't there one of those on every night?
