Instead of comparing ourselves to an organization like Cardinals we should be looking at the Pirates as a closer model to us. Our attendance is pitiful besides being competitive, if we were under .500 would we look like the Marlins ballpark
Terrible crowds? I guess it depends on your definition of "terrible". Terrible might be the Rays, Indians, Astros and Marlins. Comparing that to this season in Cincinnati? Not even close. Unless you expect a sellout/near-sellout in all games. But click below to get a full understanding of your overstatement.
College games?!? Tell me about this high-drawing college BASEBALL game that I missed. Perhaps you mean college FOOTBALL. If so, apples vs oranges... unless you want to tell all NFL teams they have terrible attendance too. This team was under .500 for many years and NEVER did it become like the Marlins. Nor is the attendance pitiful this year. It is middle of the road for all MLB teams. And when you consider market size and the economy... it is not so bad.
