Were they sold tickets and not used or unsold tickets?

Yes those contracts look bad; and I have at no point claimed to possess even adequate baseball knowledge; but come on man, I think most rational royals fans are well aware that this is most likely a lost season...

There's absolutely no reason to defecate all over any little spark of enthusiasm
Is it not okay to discuss merit and context of contracts in a thread discussing the Royals?

Asking for a friend.

Not for me. Should be for the org. All it means is they've now spoiled the fan base with winning. The effect lasted a couple of years. It's worn off. They have to do better to rebuild faster and get back to competitive baseball quickly after a wave hits FA. There was a day when opening day was the best thing to look forward to in a season. The fan base has changed...they know that better baseball is in October. Good for us. Now DM and company need to get us back, stat and all will be fine again.

Gotcha. I thought that was the gate total. Still not a shock. Bad team and I think the loss of Salvy gut punched a lot of people. Still in the 5 year window of a championship. May still be hard for people to accept the rebuild/90 loss days.

I mean it doesn't concern me, but it should concern Glass and Moore. The home opener was always a guaranteed sell out for years. Even when we were in the decade of trash.

I haven't followed the Royals closely in the offseason. Is Boxberger the closer?

Where was O'Hearn? Is Lopez expected to get playing time in the near future?

There are some good explanations but honestly, 31k for Opening Day is awful news. This is the first time in my life (other than in 1995 right after the strike) that I heard ads for Opener on the radio. And they were advertising “upper and lower level” which the lower has NEVER had availability.


We had 15k season tix during much of Mr Ks era - he capped it at 15k to make sure Joe Shmoe could get out there too. It fell to 10k under Glass, and I assume it went back to 20k during our WS runs.


What does that mean? Simple - the Opener has never, ever, under any time frame, had avail until yesterday. That’s scary. Our market may not be able to support MLB.

O Hearn sucks against lefties so he sat. Lopez is in the rotation and Boxberger was just a guy we threw out there because Diekman tried blowing it

I don't think I'm going to like this Diekmann fellow. He looks like a true piece of shit. I guess he had one good year in 2013. But he's from Nebraska so Royals fans will probably like him.

LMFAO @ the notion that KC may not be able to support an MLB team.

That’s so incredibly fucking stupid.

The KC economy is at its highest point EVER, and civic pride is at an all-time high. This town supported its baseball team through one of the greatest recessions in history while the team was GOD AWFUL and you think low opening day numbers indicate a lack of support? The effects from the WS win go far beyond ticket sales. There are more kids in this region who are diehard Royals fans than there have ever been...merch sales, ad dollars (look at the big-name sponsors in the stadium now...the local companies are now national ones)...this all contributes to the team’s bottom line.

Weather 100% played a role in the empty seats on Thursday. And it will again on Saturday.

KC is doing a fine job supporting its three pro teams. Your fears are nonsensical.
