Tampa Bay attendance

Over on his blog, Shysterball, Craig Calcaterra notes that the Devil Rays are having a hard time attracting fans:
The Rays are again playing games at Disney World as part of an initiative "designed to bolster fan support in the Orlando area." Last night's attendance: 8,989. You're doing it wrong, Tampa Bay.

I'm going to have to agree with Craig Calcaterra here. Any time I see empty seats my first instinct is that they should lower the price. A cursory glance at the official pages of both teams shows that tickets to a single D-Rays home game are more or less comparable to a home game at Fenway, though I would guess that the scalping value of the Bosox tickets would be much higher. Also, they should consider going back to being the Devil Rays.

If neither of those works, they could always have $0.10 beer night...
