It's the outfield, stupid!

The Bank President had a bit about how the Reds had to cut a couple of staff because of the economy. Alright, fine. We know the economy is bad and that people are losing their jobs. However, this little bit from Karen Forgus, the senior vice-president for business operations, is just an excuse.
The economy has hurt ticket sales -- so far, at least.

"Fans are telling us they still plan to come to games during the season," Forgus said. "They just aren't buying tickets in February. They might buy them in June."
Sure, blame the economy for poor ticket sales. But I know I'm not the only one who has no desire to buy tickets because of the team they're fielding this year.
