Hey, an exciting team, a better park than Fenway, better prices and food.

Sorry, BOS, the truth hurts.

I'm sure they're all crying with their 2004 and 2007 World Series trophies.

The Milwaukee Braves outdrew the Cubs and White Sox combined in 1957. By a wide margin.

The Red Sox aren't exactly hurting. They have by far the most expensive tickets in MLB and are at 104% capacity this season.

Only Wrigley sells out. All other parks sell to "near capacity".

I have never bought their % numbers because I don't know if they ever update the total capacity number. I think it used to be inaccurate with the Cell.

I've heard that the attendance figures are the number of tickets sold for that particular game and not the actual number of people in the stands.

The Nats are a good example of this. No way do they get 29,000 out per game.

Do the Marlins adjust their seating capacity for baseball like Oakland does? That place holds like 70,000 people and is showing 40% filled.

More like extremely finite seating capacity hurts. And by hurts I mean doesn't really hurt.
