Illustration for article titled Chart: Which MLB Fans Suck At Supporting Winning Teams?

This graph, from Harley Ellenberger, charts MLB home attendance and winning percentage throughout the season. As expected, the Red Sox, Cubs, and Yankees had solid attendance despite missing the playoffs, and no one went to see the Astros or Rays. But what's most amusing is that despite making their first playoff appearance in 29 years, the Kansas City Royals had shit attendance, ranking 23rd in filling their stadium to capacity. Manager Ned Yost was apparently onto something.
