I would have gone to those games anyway but instead of my money going to the team it went to a third party. The Sox got an extra but in the seat but lost an additional paid admission. When so much of your overall attendance is dependent on walk ups, it kills them to have websites undercutting their prices.
That's also because their prices are too high.
Attendance records:
09 : 3-2.
10 : 2-3.
11: 0-1.
12: 2-1.
14: 2-3.
15: 3-3.
16: 1-0.
