    Have to build up the season ticket base. Oak drew 16 AZ drew 17, ATL drew 21, Philly 28, Yankees 33k last night. Sept weekdays are tough for MLB with school and the mindset shift to football. Reds in a division race, but still 4 behind in the loss column and not exactly have been playing confidence inspiring ball until the last two nights to create fan excitement and buzz.

    Cleveland = 9962. Ouch. They have some real long term viability issues up there now.

    Yeah, the Reds won, but look at that low attendance! Losers!
    There were a lot of empty seats in Busch last week also. Not sure what the announced attendance was, but it was noticably poorly attended.

    I like wine. Sour grapes, not so much.

    From the Cards game thread.. I love this one

    That's why its not the pitching. Yes Bailey is throw some good pitches but he is throwing a hell of a lot of bad ones and our batters are swinging at everything.
    Thank you Walt and Bob for going for it in 2010-2014!

    The irony is that the Reds winning here is maybe just setting up a WC matchup with STL.

    I know some prefer that but many don't.

    And I certainly get it. We homeschooled all these years, have 4 of my younguns entering the local school system, we're getting up at 6-6:30 every day, and we don't even have bus riders. Ain't no way we're doing a Reds game with a 2-1/2 hour drive on a school night.

    My son will be tired Friday at school as I'm about 2 hours away and we are going Thursday.

    Still lots of games left with the Pirates. Just keep trying to win every game and let the chips fall where they may.

    I understand anyone who has to drive hours, but Hamilton County has a population of 800K, Claremont 200K, Warren 212K and then Northern KY has over 300K, add in a pennant race and I'm shaking my head at 20 K on Tuesday no matter what the excuse is.

    Just seems that baseball fans are hard to come by these days. Maybe everyone was at their fantasy football drafts or something?

    Ubiquity of television. What's the point of spending money, especially on a Tuesday night, when nearly anyone who wants can watch in full high-definition? Television is baseball's golden goose--we shouldn't act surprised when consumer choices reflect that reality.

    Temps in the upper 70's, playoff run, great lineups, pitching.

    Or stay in home and sit on the couch.

    What's the point?

    Evidently that must be the Reds fan motto.

    "Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."
