    I wonder how much more $$ annually the Red Sox could make if they played in a stadium with 50k attendance.

    Does that mean, on average, Philly and Boston sell out every game?

    I'm surprised Oakland is lower than Florida. Sucks to be Oakland.

    Yankees stadium won't sell out again till they lower the prices. A lot of those seats ticket prices are ridiculous.

    That's a lot of potatoes!

    So are Yankees fans supposed to feel sympathy when other fans ***** and moan about payrolls? The AL champion Rays have worse attendance than the God damn Nationals. Give me a break.

    After all of the years of misery (and the top 5 picks that came with it), they finally have a winning team, and they can't get more fans than the Nationals? Some fans...

    What gets you a decent seat down there? $15?

    For baseball, that's absurd.

    Wasn't too long ago in the early to mid-90's when the Yankees average just 20,000 a game and the Mets 17,000. The Yankees going on that 4 WS run changed New York.

    It's lower than I would have expected, though it is an awful place to see a ballagame.

    For those prices, I would watch my AL champion team play underground.

    Actually they kinda need a dome or a retractable roof down there. It rains alot and it's absolutely disgusting there in July and August.

    Florida has no buisiness having 2 teams let alone 1, everyone in that state are transplated from up north and still hold legions to other teams. Time to move Tamps to Portland.

    AL East
    Boston
    NY Yankees
    Toronto
    Baltimore
    Pittsburgh

    AL Central
    Detroit
    Minnesota
    Chicago Sox
    Kansas City
    Cleveland

    AL West
    LA Angels
    Texas
    Seattle
    Oakland
    Portland

    NL East
    Philadelphia
    Florida
    NY Mets
    Atlanta
    Washington

    NL Central
    St. Louis
    Chicago Cubs
    Cincinnati
    Houston
    Milwaukee

    NL West
    LA Dodgers
    San Francisco
    Colorado
    San Diego
    Arizona

    *Brewers move back to the AL East having switching leagues in 97, this evens out the divsions to 5 each. The AL West only had 4 and the NL Central had 6, made no sense.

    I doubt they'd go to 15 AL & 15 NL but if they did Milwaukee belongs in the AL Central and Cleveland in the AL East.

    Why not? Why isn't it even?

    That could work, or Pittsburgh can go to the AL East.

    I've heard that they don't want an interleague game every day, which would be necessary with 15 & 15.
