SBJ breaks down the impact of various ballpark giveaways and promotions on attendance. There's a chart at the link that I'm not going to reproduce here.

Things I wrote while wondering whether I am the only attorney in Columbus, Ohio who is listening to "Protect Ya Neck" on his iPod right now. Maybe this guy is . . .

Angels 7, Yankees 6: Behold the power of the Rally Monkey. Or behold the the suckiness that is A.J. Burnett when he doesn't have his best stuff.

Whatever the case, each team did its best to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory, with the Yankees just barely edging the Angels in that department.
