More Rays fans show up for the clincher

Sep 29, 2010, 10:00 AM EDT

It wasn’t exactly standing room only, but let the record reflect that 17,891 souls showed up for the Rays’ playoff clinching game last night. I don’t have the energy to go back into yesterday’s What Does This Mean discussion, but I figured people should know.

And no, this is not an epic fail in light of the Rays 20,000 ticket giveaway. That’s for tonight’s game, not last night’s.  Of course, if they still draw only 17K tonight, OK, we’ll talk.

    Oh, crap. And I’ve been making fun of them for the past twelve hours.

    17,891 is still below the season’s average attendance. That fact is that they are still in a pennant race with the Yankees. If a bunch of Rays fans show up in KC this weekend, I think we can all shut up about this.

    All this talk about clinchers and clinching sound dirty.

    That’s ok, since they already clinched last night and considering the 20k ticket giveaway, Bodog set the over-under for tonight’s attendance at 17. Not 17,000. Just 17.
    In unrelated news, there’s also a prop bet out there about which will be the lowest (and highest) during tonight’s game:
    1) total Attendance
    2) Total Rays players dressed for the game
    3) Soriano’s pitch count
    4) Total runs scored for the game

    3 will be the lowest. They won’t pitch Soriano. They’ll be so hungover that they’ll get shut out tonight.

    I could see only 17,000 fans showing up for a Feesh game if Scrooge McLoria gave away 20,000 tickets. Hell, I could see only 5,000 fans showing up for a Feesh game if Scrooge McLoria gave away 20,000 tickets.
    But what I can’t see is Scrooge McLoria giving out 20,000 tickets in the first place.
