Calling out all Ranger fans......
In my opinion, the Clubs money issues could have been solved or helped with better turnout this season.
If the Rangers could have drawn 30+ thousand fans per game on average I believer that the increased in income alone would have helped the 2009 outcome this season. With increased income/attendance, the Rangers would be able to pick up a pitcher or bat with they need it and not end up flat at the end of the year. The Indians and Braves benefited from saleout or near sellout crowds in the 90's. The Red Sox and Yankees while have bigger wallets to begin with arn't hurt by poor turnout.
I say if Ranger fans really want to see this team excell in the playoffs and put the end to Angel domination in the West, the Rangers need to see atleast 30,000+ crowns nightly and sellouts in weekend games.
I live about 2 hours from the ballpark and usually try to make it one game a season. This year I descided to make 2 games. There are enough Ranger fans in the D/FW area to fill the Ballpark. The new Cowboy Stadium holds over 100,000 fans and if the Cowboys can get that many per game a few blocks away, surely 30,000 plus per game is possible. Better attendance will help The Rangers be able to jump the Angels and be the dominating team in the AL West..
