Also when you stop and consider the fact that the White Sox fanbase is no longer in the neighborhoods of the Southside of Chicago, I really don't think our attendance is that bad. If the White Sox draw 2 million people a year, I really think that's a good number when you account for the fact that probably 85% of those people attending White Sox games are from somewhere else other than the Southside of Chicago.
So who are the people on the Southside of Chicago rooting for? The Sox need to expand the fan base.
