Attendence Update
The Royals are 21st in average attendence, at 22,112 a game. However, and here's the mildly good news, they are 19% in the more prestigious Percentage Capacity Standings filling roughly 54.2% of the K.

Actually, I'm not even sure why ESPN keeps that category... What exactly does that tell us? So many teams are so close to the 42,000 range, and on 9 nights out of 10, in 2/3rds of the cities in MLB the capacity of the stadium has absolutely no bearing on how many tickets are sold. Perhaps the whole category is just invented to make us worship the Red Sawks and Cubbies even more.

I must admit, that 101.2% capacity the Sox are drawing is impressive, although, doesn't the actual listed capacity need to increase if they pack more people in every single game?
