For the first time in a few years, reason to cheer in Boston. Five-dollar beers!
The Fenway attendance bubble is on the verge of popping. (Actually, it popped. The Red Sox have been keeping their 10-year sellout streak alive on technicalities, resorting to giving away tickets and fudging the standing room numbers, among other tricks.) April is set up as a perfect storm for low turnout—cold weather, 17 home games, unsexy opponents, and of course a Red Sox team that should be near the cellar of the AL East.
