  1. Received an email about a new 10 ticket 'Voucher Pack' they are offering, and from that, I am led to believe we are going to see significant increases to ticket prices this year. $291 for 10 Lower Corner tickets. Do the math, that's up $9.10 from the $20 they've been at for quite a few years now. $30 for Bleachers, are they nuts?
  2. Please, everyone, stop with the bullshit "equivalency". You can't just multiple the games by 2.7 and say that's what would happen in a full season. Baseball games aren't played on a calculator. They showed most of the year that they had the talent to win 4-5 more games than they did. Expectations change, they did not outperform when it was all said and done.

    Blue Jays must Find a US home field

    It's not MLB who would care, it's Sportsnet. Minor league parks don't meet the standard for Major League level broadcasts. Pittsburgh and Baltimore are the favorites, as both have hotels steps away from the park, eliminating the need to an auxiliary clubhouse.

    Reinsdorf makes money off Cubs network

    Hulu is majority owned by Disney and NBCUniversal (Comcast) has agreed to sell their remaining shares by 2024? I believe.

    Most Memorable Sox Game You've Attended?

    I was at that game too, 6/25/06 (my brother's birthday) on Sunday Night Baseball. We left in the 6th when the rain started, I was leaving the country the next morning. Heard both homers on the radio and watched them lose it at home.

    Most Memorable Sox Game You've Attended?

    1) Lee Walkoff vs Flubs - what a scene 2) Opening Night 2006 - one of the most memorable nights of my life, despite all the rain 3) This game, my 14th birthday in 2003. Robby Alomar broke up a no-hitter in the 7th, and Frank homered to tie it right after, then walked it off with another one! In recent years, I'd say Moncada's debut is up there, also because I was in the GR Club for it. Kopech's would be without the rain, the crowd was electric for those couple innings.

    Ticket Codes

    They're still probably holding back a lot of tickets in hopes of selling plans. Also on Sundays from May-August, Reggie's, a bar at Cermak/State, buys up a big block of bleacher seats. So if you look at 160-161, the former likely is why there's nothing in the 1st 10 rows, while the latter is why there's nothing in row 17 in up.

    Ticket Codes

    Taxes were not included in the price last season. The $7 tickets became $7.84 at the window.

    Hawk on Wrigley

    The funny thing about Wrigley is that it was really a dump in it's time. Cubs fans along with the local and national media, act like it's so great and historic because it's old, but in reality it was built on the cheap with no upper level for the Federal League Whales. It never held a candle to Old Comiskey, Tiger Stadium, Old Yankee Stadium (pre-70's reno), Shibe Park, etc.

    Is GRF bad at being busy

    As was said, they were expecting 10k less people. Staff don't work for free.

    The Sox don't managed the concession stands, Delaware North does.

    Is GRF bad at being busy

    They were checking yesterday on the ramp to get back into the 100 from the social lounge. We had to walk up to the 500 just to come back down on the other side to get to the Craft Kave. They normally check all around if it's over 30,000, sounds like they were blown away by the walk up, so both concessions and security weren't prepared.
