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...
I agree with all these points. Not to mention that 2011 was a deflating year where expensive players didn't perform.
I wish attendance was better. I also wish for a team that doesn't do an el foldo act in September.
