Thanks for summarizing the discussion. I appreciate you taking the time to do this.
Regarding the attendance issue, I hope they looked into the fact that the Sox need to make the playoffs more than their current trend of once every 5 years or so if they want to draw fans. That being said, I'm glad they're making pricing efforts to get more fans to show up, but it all starts with winning.
