What are the ticket prices like in those markets for example? How do they compare to the Sox??
Again for seemingly the thousandth time, there is NO ONE SINGLE REASON OR ANSWER...it's all factoring in...which to my mind makes it that much harder for Brooks and company to figure out.
How do you come up with a plan where you don't know where to start?
It's not apparently, fix A, then B, then C, then D...problem solved.
It's more like, "well because of this factor we have to start with C, get that a little better than we can look at A, then mayby slide over to start on E."
I have no idea how they are going to tackle this.
I will say this though and I believe it to the core having closely watched this franchise now for 52 seasons. If they could put a run together, not get to the World Series four years in a row, just get to the playoffs four years in six...seven times in a decade (like say the Angels, or Boston or the Cardinals or Phillies something like their runs) a LOT of these issues would disappear.
I am firmly convinced of that.
