Re: Reds/Brew Series - Reds/ATL series
The Reds averaged roughly 14,000 for 2 night home games vs the Mets earlier this month on a Monday/tuesday night. this was coming off a successful road trip (though after lossing the last 2 to St Louis) The weather is going to be crappy tonight, but some weatherperson was predicting that they'll be able to get both games in today and tomorrow, meaning it won't be terrible.
Anyhoo, I'm wondering what the fan reaction is going to be in terms of attendance. Will they get a push up to the 20k range? Will the weather hold some people back? Will the well attend series vs the Cards keep some folks home that went over the weekend, or will those that didn't go find a renewed interest and decide to attend tonights game? Will the fact that the team is about to go on the road spark some fans to catch one more game before the leave town? I'm sure Bob and company will be watching the attendance tonight w/ an eye towards thinking if they can expand the payroll later in the season w/o hurting the bottom line, which I think makes a small side note to tonight's action.
