His move to make sure the house was packed for the serries has to be paying off. While the fans on the 1st night got hosed, the fans for the last 2 nights saw some fantastic baseball. That's 80,000+ plus people. Take away 25,000 x 2 for the "regulars" than normally attend and you have roughly 30,000 people who might start spending their entertainment dollars on the Reds again.
That's key and critical. We can horse around about EE vs RA all day but this is a business. If they can increase the revenues, I have faith that BC will be taking further steps to improve the team.
Yep, the last two night helped heal some deep wounds with the "average joe" fan base. Getting 42,000+ in the stands to see that performace is the best advertising this team could possibly get.
What if this wasn't a rhetorical question?
All models are wrong. Some of them are useful.
