Holy cow, it's almost time for the 2016 MLB season to begin. Time to archive the 2015 attendance record and move it off the sidebar, but memorialize it here for posterity.
This season in particular was a crazy one. We went to 40 games, which is about par for the Sons. This includes two games on the road, again about par for the Sons. And it included two playoff games...we won't talk about that.
Despite the Dodgers' first-round bounce from the playoffs, the Sons can still bring it.
Our eight-year cumulative record of 155-99 represents a .610 winning record, an 12-hundredths point improvement over prior year, and at this point the Dodgers really need to give us season tickets in order to ensure a solid season.
And this doesn't even factor into it our beer intake, which probably overindexes consumption levels (and concession sales) right there. Factor this in to one's economic modeling, and it might have been plausible to re-sign Zack Greinke this year. Instead, we've got Ross Stripling. Which is basically the same thing, I know.
I need another beer.
Oh yeah, about that record:
