Baseball is not dying. The White Sox should not be contracted. It is April, and it is cold and gray and wet in Chicago, and normal people are at work or in school. There are many more reasons not to be at U.S. Cellular Field than there are to be there, but my goodness: That is an empty ballpark.

Today's turnout is, somehow, even worse than yesterday's:


The announced attendance (which you can always assume is inflated) for yesterday's game was 10,625. Will today's crack 10,000? Place your bets—it's the most exciting game in town.
