Sox are coming off their best run of attendance in team history in those 6 years, so some dropoff is inevitable unless they manage to turn into the Yankees. In addition, there was ZERO hype about this team last winter. The only moves they made was to lose a once popular manager and probably the most beloved pitcher in team history.
I honestly don't know where attendance is nationally. I assume it's down as a rule except in areas that are immune from this kind of stuff and where teams are on a good role.
In addition the Sox actually drew 1.97M this year. Just FYI...
