Dang it. It sucks I live so far away that I can’t buy a package in order to get All-Star game tickets. I would love to go to that, and wanted to get tickets. But it looks like I won’t be able to get them at all, or at a fair rate. #boooo

The Reds are truly killing me! I mean they are paying for bad contracts and they say they are cash hamstrung. Do you really think other than opening day people are going to come out like they did last year and watch this team? I HOPE NOT! I am an avid Reds fan. Have been for 45 years. I now live in Michigan due to my job, but originally from Dayton. I am passionate to see the Reds win a Championship. Been way too long. The year I was married to be exact….1990. The Padres are all in and I can’t believe it. Where do they get their $ with them also being a small to mid market team? We now have taken 2 starters away, we have no left fielder to speak of and we are counting on everyone to have return to form years to even make us competitive. Jocketty drives me nuts and I am also tired of hearing from him they are cash strapped. Give me a royal break! Castellini started out making good on his promise, but due to stupid and hideous long contracts we are hamstrung and probably will be a last place team in 2015. It just hurts!!! Your thoughts?

One. Regarding San Diego, they just signed a new TV deal of gargantuan proportions, reflecting mostly the growth underway in that region of the country and the expectation of continued growth. That hands them an enormous windfall. The Reds are also up for re-negotiation by 2016, and it will increase, of course, but not nearly with the same sizable jump, reflecting the fact that the Reds operate out of a slowly dying region of the country. So, yes, it does come down to revenue stream and dollars available, as it always has in the New Age of Television and Free Agency.

Understand that TV deal and how we get ours in 2016, but San Diego probably will still not get the attendance we got last year and the midwest has better fans. Bottom line is I think we would fill more butts in the stands if Castellini showed us a little faith this year with maybe one good free agent signing for LF. That’s all.

Part of my point is that attendance no longer matters as much as it used to. TV rules the roost!
