Could Chris Archer be the voice of reason in the Rays' Stadium Saga?

After record low attendance on Monday and Tuesday for home games against the Yankees, Chris Archer took to twitter to comment on the near-12,000 who showed for Game 3 of the series:

Last night's game was no different, failing to crack the "12,000" figure noted by Archer as the dividing line.

Of course, butts in blue seats aren't everything, the Rays are consistently strong draws on the television market, and a fan on twitter agreed. This led to a brief and quick discussion:

Three tweets, and Chris Archer is ready to bring his thoughts on the Rays Stadium Saga to the City Council itself.

- Per MLBTR:

Yankees right-hander Chase Whitley left tonight's game after just 1 2/3 innings due to an elbow injury. Whitley will undergo an MRI tomorrow and he told reporters (including Chad Jennings of the LoHud Yankees blog) that he has been coping with the injury for a while but hadn't told the club about it until tonight.
