The attendance issues probably won't be seen yet for two years. The Twins have been pretty successful pimping the All-Star game.
It's after next season that I have some serious concerns about the team's season ticket holder levels going down dramatically unless we start winning.
Hendriks,Tonkin, and Pinto are good enough for me. I don't believe Parmelee is being punished, nor did I buy the persistent argument he was being blocked. I wouldn't doubt the next time his name comes up he's DFA.
If there are auditions. Cheap seats about to be available bigtime on StubHub. Yes, the Twins will average 27-29,000 the remainder of the year due to season ticket holders and such. But a lot of unclaimed seats, my friends. Also means loss concession revenue.
Thje Twins have no 40-man spots to add guys. The only likey prospects are May (AFL), Hicks and Parmelee (will be punished by no recall), Hermsen (stunk up AA), Santana (too young), Pinto (will show up, at least, I hope). Tonkin will come on board. Maybe Diamond will return after playoffs. Maybe DeVries will get a shot. Hernandez and Mastro are up. Who am I leaving out? No one exciting, my friends.
No 40-man spots to open up for anyone.
Last I looked attendance was averaging 31,000. I friend just offered me his seats in LCF for September. I really enjoy going to Target Field and can't wait to see the auditions the remainder of the season.
