    Will 2017 be the first time in the last 19 years that the Yankees fail to draw three million at home? I think they have a good shot at it – watching their attendance trend.

      Yes. A team winning only half its games and finishing in 4th place will attract fewer and fewer fans. Or, just extrapolate 2012 – 2016. They’re losing 100,000 fans per year.

      Definitely a possibility they’ll draw less than 3 million. They’re in a rebuilding stage (although they won’t admit it) and they have no last year of players like Mo, Andy and Jeter.

      I agree its likely they’ll draw under 3 million this year, and probably next year as well.

      I HOPE that their lack of success makes Hal remember his dad’s philosophy regarding putting asses in the seats. ‘Spend money, stay in the news, win, win, win’…..
