Texas Rangers: Decline in single-game ticket sales has cost the Rangers an estimated $54 million in revenue since 2012 | SportsDay

Some people should NOT be allowed anywhere near a calculator.

In 2012, coming off a second consecutive World Series appearance, the Rangers set a club record with 3,460,280 tickets sold. They followed that with 3,178,273 tickets sold in 2013.

The drop from 2012 to this season is 1,353,173. That is the 10th-largest decrease within a seven-season window in baseball history.

Using the $40-per-ticket estimate, that also translates to a revenue shortfall of $54 million.

2012 was a complete outlier. It's a bit silly (and dishonest) to use that year as a baseline for expectations

Silly and dishonest are nice ways to put it.

'A straight up lie' is another way.

Do you think a large for-profit enterprise would do that? Just lie?
