Will baseball crowds make noise? The Chicago baseball scene isn't exactly overflowing with confidence on either the North or South sides, so it will be interesting to see if fans continue to stay away from Wrigley Field -- where the high prices hardly match the low output -- and U.S. Cellular Field -- whose sponsor has even forsaken the area. Yes, the economy was bad as the Cubs drew their lowest season attendance total since 2002 and the Sox their lowest since 2004, but it doesn't appear to be much better for this year -- and neither does the outlook for either team.
