Relatively speaking, of course.
Ever so quietly, THE PHILLIES DIDN’T SELL OUT ON SATURDAY AND SUNDAY, THE SECOND AND THIRD HOME GAMES OF THE SEASON, ON A WEEKEND, WHEN IT WAS PRETTY NICE OUT.
They didn’t even top 40,000 each of those two days.
Yeah, that’s not good.
For a team that sold out three straight seasons, failing to come even close for weekend opening series games, I can assure you, is more than mildly concerning for the team. They couldn’t even get close enough to fudge the numbers this weekend.
So, what to do? Back to the hot dog wrappers. Almost:

There’s more, too. Suddenly, the Phillies realized that they have to use social media for things other than pictures of giveaways:
