But you make a good point on how important it is to win to attract the additional players. Especially role players.
My point about Citi is the Mets overestimated the draw of the new stadium — and the ticket prices showed it. And now the empty seats show it. For that matter, the ticket prices at Yankee Stadium have had an impact as well. Lots of empty seats during the playoffs.
