As a hitter he is able to hit the ball to all fields though his home run power is mostly to rightfield. He has hit lefties decently for a left-hander, but naturally most of his power comes against righties. …

Here is the attendance index for each team (taken simply as the fans per home game, divided by the MLB average, for that season), averaged from 1969-2006.  Number 1 is the Dodgers, who had 61% more fans than average, on average (while playing .534 ball in that time frame):

Att_Index	win_percent	years	team
0.86		0.501		38	CHA

That’s 86%. 14% below average.

How about when the Sox play under .500?

Att_Index	win_percent	years	team
0.72		0.45		18	CHA

That’s 72%. 28% below average.

and when the Sox play over .500:

Att_Index	win_percent	years	team
0.98		0.548		20	CHA

That’s 98%. Just 2% below average.

So, keep winning and the fans will be coming Kenny!

Peoria Javelinas vs. Mesa Solar Sox: Boxscore, Gameday. Dayan Viciedo is playing 3B. C.J. Retherford is playing DH. Weather: 88 degrees, sunny.

BTW, here’s Jonathan Mayo:

Sergio Santos, White Sox: Like Lo, he’s gone four innings without allowing a run. He has yielded five hits, but hasn’t walked anyone and has struck out four. Plus, it’s a cool story since Santos played in the Fall League a few years back as a shortstop.

And C.J. Retherford is twitting @ CJRetherfordAFL.

UPDATE: Peoria won 8-1:

Dayan Viciedo: 1-5, 2 RBI, 2 K, .333 AVG
C.J. Retherford: 0-2, 1 BB, .364 AVG
Jordan Danks: 1-1, 1 HR, 1 BB, .357 AVG
Jacob Rasner: 2 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 0 K, 0 BB, 0 HR, 33.75 ERA
