I just assumed it was because people dont care about baseball anymore.

Here in the Oakland/SF Bay Area it is interesting to see how many baseball fans we have all of a sudden.....

It never amazes me how many fair weather fans California seems to have. Its just like when the kings were in the hockey playoffs last year. All of a sudden the whole damn state was composed of hockey fans that somehow I had never ever seen before. I guess they hibernate during the regular season or something.

Raiders fans are consistent, I will give them that. Same with the 49ers. But that is football and it seems to be "America's Game" for the time being.

you must not come to LA much. the dodgers and kings always sell well, even in bad years. even the dodgers last losing season in '05 had them in the top 5 in attendance. and the kings sold out every home game last year. it's just a symptom of out-of-state and rival ignorance that people think otherwise, because it's never been true.

I have lived in California for half of my nearly 40 years. Both ends of the state. I am in SoCal more often then I would actually like. I am glad that has been your experience, that certainly makes being a fan more fun....but everyone from Sportscenter to LA's local CSN channel was making fun of how popular the Kings got late last year. Hell, the Kings players were joking about it.
