PACK THE PARK: In St. Louis, Derrick Goold reported the Cardinals are MLB’s “third team to surpass two million in attendance this season, joining the Yankees and the Dodgers.” Through Sunday, the Cardinals’ average attendance of 42,534 ranked third in MLB, behind the Yankees and Dodgers. The Cardinals, who sold out their first 48 games, played the first month of the season “without a section of seats opened” at the new Busch Stadium (ST. LOUIS POST-DISPATCH, 7/17)....The Red Sox reached the 1.5 million attendance mark in their 42nd game, “their fastest yet.” It took 43 games last year (BOSTON HERALD, 7/18).
JAM SESSION: SI.com’s Jon Heyman cited a friend of A’s P Barry Zito, who becomes a free agent after this season, as saying that he “wants to go to a big market ‘so he could sell his music,’ and believes he would prefer one of three teams: 1) Dodgers (his parents live in the Los Angeles area), 2) Mets, 3) Yankees” (SI.com, 7/17).
