    Quick Question....

    Exactly how do they claim this "Sell Out" streak when they announced that last night's game was the highest paid attendance in fenway since the end of WWII?

    Did they suddenly add more seats overnight?

     

    From ESPN.com

    The paid attendance of 38,422 was the largest at Fenway Park since the end of World War II. The previous top paid attendance was 38,347 on May 21, 2009, for a 5-1 win over the Toronto Blue Jays.

    Wait until the Fire Marshall hears about this.

    Boston Globe future headline: 'Boston's Fire Marshall finds John Henry in violation , shuts down Fenway and effectively ends consecutive sellout streak along with the Red Sox season.'

    Henry states he didn't think Fenway had to abide by rules as it is open in the middle and in the event of a fire, smoke and flames could escape easily and the games likely could go on without disruption.

    Yup, and the Yanks outdraw the red flops by about 6K at home and about 3k on the road.

    I don't start a thread about it once a week. I just think it's ridiculous that they continue to perpetuate this fraud.

    I'm guessing the red flops care so they can continue to sell all the "sell out" paraphenalia.

    well chum, maybe they do, and maybe they don't. one thing is for sure. when the red sox play there appears to be not a single seat open. where as when you see a game at the new stadium there seems to be a grand amount of open seats. especially behind home plate. this argument is totally moot.

    SRO is the short answer to the silly OP. 

    The longer answer is that keeping Fenway and keeping it small are just short of marketing genius.  The remarkable thing isn't that 38,000-plus fans set a new record last night, but that it was against the lowly Padres.  Never happen in Yankee Stadium, even today's brand-new, ideal sight-lines, guaranteed dingers every inning on the inning Yankee Stadium.  Ironically, Fenway Park is terrific on TV, but not so great in person (once you get ever the history and personality, which, granted, doesn't happen quickly) because of the atrocious sight lines. 

    There is another MLB team that does the SRO thing even better and claims an average attendance so far this year of 104%.  The Sox only claim 101%. 

    Whatever the facts are and regardless of whether true sellouts have occurred for six or so years, the attendance and the TV revenues are big enough to allow the Sox to compete with the very wealthy Yankees year after year.

    But the Yanks don't claim a fictitious sell out streak. And the Yanks also draw more at home and on the road then the red flops.
