    Disregard my facebook message as this is pretty much what I was looking for. I wonder if they’d ever move the rotation around so that Price pitches on Tues/Thurs more often to drive up attendance on those days.

      Thanks for reading, Jack Cobra! We look at starting pitcher attendance tomorrow! Will David Price make that much of a difference?
