Angels Outdrawing The Dodgers

10

Yes, it's been a harsh year what with a losing record and the slow-motion McCourt fiasco going on, but the Angels are outdrawing the Dodgers despite the fact that they also are two games behind the Dodgers in home games, 1,636,546 to 1,607,623. As viewed by average per-game attendance, the disparity is even more stark, 38,965 (5th overall in MLB) to 36,537 (10th overall). The recent interleague series home and away between the two teams was also interesting; Dodger Stadium still outdrew Angels Stadium, but not as much as in years past, when it routinely sold out ( Angels @ Dodgers series was in the 52,000 range). I have to look in my Lahman database, but I think that the Angels have never outdrawn the Dodgers over a full season before.
