Hopefully the Reds overall attendance moves up in the rankings as the year goes on. What's funny though is it's not just the Reds. Look at the ten teams from 15-24, and the teams I bolded in Red who are playoff contenders versus some of the notable others:

15 Houston 46 1,274,589 27,708
16 Seattle 45 1,232,126 27,380
17 Texas 50 1,357,770 27,155
18 Chicago White Sox 46 1,167,433 25,378
19 Arizona 46 1,164,177 25,308
20 San Diego 47 1,125,102 23,938
21 Washington 46 1,077,613 23,426
22 Cincinnati 47 1,088,309 23,155
23 Baltimore 42 965,258 22,982
24 Tampa Bay 46 1,014,159 22,046

How sad is it that two of the absolute WORST teams in baseball can draw more than FOUR division leaders, and the AL wild card team with the second best record in ALL of baseball? Basically 5 of the 8 teams that would be in the playoffs as of today, June 17th, are being outdrawn by some of the WORST teams in baseball.

Not only that, but a team in DEAD LAST in the NL West, who is 18.5 games behind the division leader, is drawing more than the leader itself!

Winning helps, and will continue to help; Cincinnati ALWAYS draws much better during the summer, and this weekend should boost that even further.
