The good news is the Rays' attendance has been ticking upward a little bit since the end of the Lightning playoff run, but the team's recent two-week slump could mean hopes of a huge recovery due to an MLB playoff run are getting dimmer.
There are lots of reasons contributing to the team's struggles at the gate, but the first explanations I've always turned to is the team's self-fulfilling prophecy and the region's lack of ability/interest in supporting three pro teams at once.
Happy All-Star Break.
