    Actually will mean more tickets available at the gate for common people and families.

    Hard to say at this point there won't be sell-outs.

    In response to selenium's comment:

    Every three months a Yankee fan starts a thread about the sellout streak and it draws other Yankee fans, Softlaw, and those who for some reason hate "pink hats". If you can't afford to attend games then you should be grateful for those who can. They pay the bills so that we can have a competitive payroll.

    Do Yankee fans hate the Wall Street crowd that leases their suites and seats behind home plate. Perhaps Babe, Steven, and Zac can fill us in on what is being said on Yankee Forums about hating the rich folks who subsidise the Yankee payroll of $206 mil. in 2013. The problem however is that Babe, Steven, and Zac never go to Yankee forums. Why is that?



    There's some of us long time Red Sox who don't like the "Pink Hats" because they're responsible for making it harder to get tickets.They bought the tickets only because being a Sox fan was fashionable at the time and Fenway was THE place to be and be seen.That made it more difficult for the real devoted fans to get tickets,and drove the secondary market for them through the roof.

    At it's height,seats were selling for 4-5 times or more than face value for a regular season game on eBay for those fans who weren't lucky enough to get them through the ticket office.Scalpers were making a killing because of the demand for tickets.

     Now,because the Sox looked so horrible last year,the "pink hats' are leaving in droves.The demand for tickets has gone down and finally the long time fans can buy their tickets at the regular(although still expensive)prices rather than through some scalper in Iowa on eBay.

    Good-bye and good riddance I say.

    Go Sox !!!

    Where in the Lucchino quote does he say that the fans are leaving in droves? Link please?

    OK, you agree with me then. You couldn't afford the tickets and hate those who could. Thanks for being sincere and honest about it. I prefer to watch at home anyway so I don't have any influence in respect to the supply-demand curve.



    I'm the one who said the "pink hats" fans were leaving in droves,not Larry"the leak" Lucchino.If you had been paying attention the last several years,you'd know that tickets were hard to come by unless you got them through a scalper.The demand has gone down because it's not so fashionable to be seen at Fenway these days(the pinkies are leaving in droves).Now tickets are available.

    I still went to games the last several years,but I was paying WAY over face value to go.Just because I could afford to buy tickets from scalpers doesn't mean I liked it.But I always enjoyed going to Fenway and I wasn't going to let some fashionable fans stop me from doing that.

    The only problem is, if and when the Sox start winning, they'll be back.

    When a poster quotes Lucchino as saying  " the fans are leaving in droves", shouldn't one get a link on that before making the assumption that he indeed said that. 



    Show me where I said that "The fans are leaving in droves" is a quote from Lucchino.I never claimed that at all.

    Babe is right about Pike.  He's just a troll here to get people going.  And he's doing it again.

    not sure what pikes problem is with mr mojos post is

    mr mojo had it right

    http://www.bostonglobe.com/sports/2013/02/01/red-sox-season-ticket-renewals-are-down-percent/UxpgHW6cbuahlKHd96D2DL/story.html

    Season-ticket renewals are down 10 percent from this time last year. Although those coveted tickets will eventually go to fans on the waiting list, the renewal lapse is seen as a signal that even hardcore fans are cooling in their enthusiasm. And that can translate into a drop in overall ticket sales — and empty seats in the stands.

    “It will come as no surprise if, on the heels of a 69-win season, our fans don’t sell out the park some nights this year,” said Sam Kennedy, the team’s chief operating officer. “We know it takes time to reconnect, to restore faith, and to believe again. We are passionate fans, too. We understand.”

    Kennedy also said that although there are no tallies yet on single-ticket sales, he expects those to be down, too.

    Re: Lucchino :

    In my humble opinion, the single most uninteresting aspect of Red Sox baseball that could possibly be discussed is this sell-out streak, from all angles.  I could care less about the streak itself.  Totally meaningless.  I could care less whether it is trumped up by the front office or media.  Classic entertainment biz, anything including smoke and mirrors to get people under the big top.  I just don't see why we should care about any of it.
