Phillies' attendance cartoon caption contest

It doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out the Phillies are having attendance problems this season. In the first six games of the season, the Phillies have averaged just a hair over 31,000 people per game, which if it held up would be the lowest number since 2003, when the team averaged just 27,901 people per game. And we're not even into May. So what do you think about all those empty seats at Citizens Bank Park?

Submit your best ideas in the comments below, and use our cool new Disqus commenting system to up-vote the captions you think should win (works better than telling me the ones I pick are terrible). You can tweet me suggestions, too - @RobTornoe. I'll pick the best and announce the results on Friday.
