The Marlins' fire sale is reportedly due to attendance levels being lower than expected. However, the Marlins ranked #18 in total attendance last year with 2.2M fans at the games. The Royals on the other hand, ranked #25 with 1.7M. Wanna see something really depressing? Sort the data by "percentage stadium attendance for away games" If you guessed the Royals were dead last, you were right.
