Cheap Giants-Dodgers ticketsAs the Yankees ponder lowering some ticket prices, the Giants actually do it:
The Giants announced deeply discounted tickets for the coming April 27-29 series against the Los Angeles Dodgers.
In a lot of places too. I haven't seen any official numbers yet, but it seems like every game I've watched -- not just the Yankees' games -- feature much smaller crowds than we've come to expect in recent years.
As with anything else, I'm prepared to admit that I'm a victim of confirmation bias here. I've been talking baseball economics doom and gloom for several months now, so maybe I'm just forgetting that seats tend to be emptier before school lets out and weather becomes less volatile. And to be sure, not everyone is suffering through poor attendance (or at least ticket sales).
But it does at least seem emptier out there.
UPDATE: Squawking Baseball is dubious that anything apocalyptic is happening. Read the first comment to the linked article for some actual numbers.

We’re still doing good in Philly. Every game sold out so far.
