Bud Selig calls Rays attendance “disgraceful”

Noah Pransky supposes that Bud Selig wasn’t being critical of the Rays’ marketing department when he called the team’s attendance “disgraceful” this week on John Feinstein’s radio show.

Pransky adds this to the list of adjectives Selig has used to describe the Rays’ Stadium Saga:

2010: “There has to be concern.”
2011: No reason “to be too optimistic.”
2012: Attendance is “inexcusable” and “disappointing.”
2013: Situation is “economically not tolerable,” “beyond disappointing, and “troubling.”
