• They Must Think They’re In! (v.2006)

    Posted by on August 23rd, 2006 · Comments (4)

    I just got the bill for my 2006 Yankees post-season tickets. The price always goes up.

    Last year, for my seats, it was:

    LDS: $71 per seat
    LCS: $106 per seat
    WS: $191 per seat

    Now, for 2006, for my same seats, the post-season prices are:

    LDS: $76 per seat
    LCS: $106 per seat
    WS: $231 per seat

    And, I betcha there’s some convenience fee or something to be added when you try and pay for them on-line.

    In 2001 and 2002, the prices for these same seats were:

    LDS: $45 per seat
    LCS: $70 per seat
    WS: $175 per seat

    The World Series seats this year are through the roof. That’s too big a leap in one year.

    In the end, what can you do? If you want to go, you have to pay.

      Gotta start paying for that over-priced new ballpark sometime.

      In early August right after the Abreu trade Steve plugged the Yankee players into the Lineup Analysis tool. It calculated that the team was good for @6 runs in almost any possible batting order.

      23 games later the Yanks are averaging 6 runs per game. Hope we can keep that average in the post-season.

      Since I don’t live in the NY area this may ring hollow, but I’ll take your WS tickets if you don’t want them. Yes it’s a lot of money, but don’t take the opportunity to go to a WS game in Yankee Stadium for granted.

      Good point zgveritas!
      And, I hear you 15, I hear you. :-)
