    Good one.

    What can you get for $ 10 at a sports bar ? Something out of a restroom vending machine and directions to a shelter ?

    What's a Dayton ?

    I'd go every game if it meant not hearing Thom Brenaman ever again

    We went to our 24th game of the season last night. We'll be there on Sunday for the last regular season game, too.

    Attendance has looked pretty good to me. Almost 29,000 last night and averaging almost 1,500 more fans per game than last season. We're on pace to break 2.5 million total visitors this year; that number has only been broke here 4 times in the past (76, 77, 78, and 2000) - so I think we're doing pretty well.

    That's also 440,000 more people than 2010. I don't think we could possibly keep on pace with that rapid expansion of attendance, but another 100,000 more and we'll at least be sitting at the NL average.
    Reds record for games attended in 2014: 11-3

    Most memorable game attended this season:
    Cueto out-pitching Dickey with a 19 pitch/3 strikeout 9th inning by Chapman

    My bad. It actually looks like we won't quite make 2.5 million. The July 4th game that was made up in SF means we'll probably be just under that for the season. It's still a high attendance year though.

    I'm not Frank Einstein or anything, but it is impossible to lose 2/3rd of 14 games since 2/3rds of 14 is 9.38.

    If you look at the final attendance, it really seems hard to be critical with Cincy being a small/mid market city. http://espn.go.com/mlb/attendance

    It would be great if they could bump it up to 2.7 million, but almost all the cities ahead are huge cities like LA, Dallas, and Boston.

    Interesting list there..... Dodgers have the largest overall attendance but at only average 82% capacity..... that's eye popping. If the Dodgers were good all year long they could have had considerably higher attendance rates....

    Another 10% bump next year and the Reds get at the back end of the top 10. The GABP Math of a 40K stadium sellout makes it hard. Atlanta draws a lot of high teen/low 20s crowds on mostweekdays and 45-48K on Fri/Sat night.

    You need to average low 30s on the weekdays assuming all weekends sellout to have any chance to get to 2.9-3M.

    Weekday and early/late season crowds are highly dependent on season tickets. Grow the season ticket base by 10% again next year and you are looking at another 150K through the gates over the course of the season. When the locals realize the weekend tickets are scarce and expensive, they'll be more likely to consider adding a few weeknight games.

    Cleveland - 1.5M. Ugly.
