We killed the Rays when they didn't sell out Game 4 of their series, but this is just as bad, isn't it? That was a day game; this is a night game. The Tampa-St. Petersburg market ranks 19th among MLB's 26 markets; Phoenix ranks 14th, with a huge population difference between 14th and 19th.
The Diamondbacks drew 2.1 million this season, even though they played well nearly all season. I guess we'll see what they've got next season, in the afterglow of this division-winning season.
