Season Ticket Sales Down; Bucs Interested in Lawrence

In a total surprise, the Pirates aren't hosting the All-Star Game in 2007 and they aren't raking in the season ticket commitments like they did last year. Pirates officials say they expect the same amount of people to come through the gates, however, because apparently they are banking on the team actually playing better.

The Pirates are one of a few teams interested in Brian Lawrence, and according to Lawrence's agent, the interest is heavy. Lawrence has a career 4.10 ERA but hasn't pitched since 2005 after tearing his labrum with the Nationals.
