Yes, they did, The weather was really bad.
Attendance is down all over

Who wants to come out in the cold?

MLB needs to shorten the season and start later. 162 games is way to long. Go to 122 games (40 games less) and start in May. This gives the players more time off. Sucks for owners ancestors they would lose roughly 20 ho e games. But itís better.
We had maybe 250 in Rochester

Our Opening Day was supposed to be Friday but was postponed three times until last night. Ridiculous that the AAA has a Southern Division yet schedules home games for Rochester in the first week of April.

Going to 122 games is absurd. No way in hell will anyone go for that. Going back to 154 will be hard enough will all the TV contracts.

Yeah, a 122 game season is never ever happening. That's a massive reduction and would cost teams tons of revenue.

No chance in hell.

Would never happen...but starting April 15 would make sense.
Regardless of the weather...

"What percentage of the fans were there for the White Sox?"

Agree on shortening season  
lugnut : 4/10/2018 8:59 pm : link
And agree it will never ever happen. I think MLB is the only major sport that still derives most of its revenue from fans' butts in seats(?) - so no way will owners give up the $$.

Ideal - Start mid-April and have last reg season game on Labor Day, fitting end to the summer. Playoffs and WS are done by Oct. 1, when it's really fall and football is kicking into high gear.
Anyway, listen to the roar of the crowd

Plz respkit.
Baseball's fine

Football players play in the snow and the rain. People don't come out, fine. They'll work it out or come to the games when the weather is better.

If less people go to the games, then oh well, contracts will have to change.
Keep the 162,  
MBavaro : 4/11/2018 4:57 am : link
but shorten the season by playing double headers. Spread them out over the course of the season.

Maybe if the players
