Ultimately though if they didn't experience sustained winning, that bump would go away. One thing and one thing only affects attendance: Ws.
I think any attendance bump from PA announcing a deal to sell would be affected by WHOM he was going to sell it to. If someone like Cal Jr. was the front man then I think you would see a ground swell of excitement that would flow through the clubhouse into the stands. Of course, winning will be the ultimate draw but just the news that PA may be sailing down the Chesapeake may be the best news to hit Baltimore since they woke up one morning and found the flag still flying.
