Biz of Baseball on 2011 Attendance

David Simmons took a look at the attendance projections for the Astros, and he disagrees with our attendance thoughts:

The Astros will have a tough time out of the box both on and off the field. The team is home for 22 of its first 37 games while school is still in session. The lone bright spot is that the Red Sox come to town for interleague play. Just like the Pirates, I can’t see the team going anywhere but down at the box office. I forsee the Astros having a 10% drop at the box office in 2011.

I'll vote with this guy and say 10% attendance decline as well. Lack of wins, lack of young up-and-coming players, more holiday games...meh. It's halving that the number of bobblehead giveaways over last year that'll really keep folks away!!!
