It's rare that you ever see anything positive regarding the Sox attendance in the mainstream media. King Kauffman, who writes King Kauffman's Sports Daily for Salon.com, is a rare exception. I was so impressed with his recent column that I did something I'm rarely ever compelled to do. -- I wrote him an email. It wasn't even one of those explicative filled rants; it was a thank you email.
It's refreshing that you actually looked at the numbers before adding [to] the garbage heap of wasted copy.
Thanks again. I'll be sure to get a link up to your article on my blog.

Rest of May: 27,621
August: 30,768 (three dates)
Since All-Star break: 35,089
Even better: The White Sox drew an average of 13,487 for a three-game midweek series against the Kansas City Royals in early May. In late June, another midweek three-game series with K.C. drew an average of 29,032.
Winning even trumps ticket price. Monday games at U.S. Cellular Field are half-price. The first two, on April 18 and May 16, drew 27,018 and 26,889, good crowds. But starting with the next half-price night, on May 30, the Sox have never failed to draw at least 33,000
Tonight's game is sold out. Only limited tickets are available for Saturday and Sunday (Scout Seats baby!)
Scott Podsednik is slumping. BAD. I just wanted to guage how everyone here felt about it. There is a new poll at right. Use this thread to place your thoughts on the poll.
