They haven't had a "gate receipt" guy since Ripken. They thought Tejada would be one, but even with him on the team that first year, it was close to 50% visiting fans when Boston/NYY were in town. A rookie ain't gonna fill the seats.
And yea their pitching sucks the donkey scrotte. But don't catchers call the game? Is Wieters going to be that kind of catcher? I hardly think so. Word around the fan base is no earlier than late June.
