Many teams in baseball have tiered pricing for their tickets, meaning games against the better teams are more expensive than games against the lesser ones.

For some clubs, it's a way to take advantage of out-of-town fans coming to their park. For others, it's just a matter of supply and demand.

In the American League, the Red Sox and the Yankees have been the prime-time attractions for several years now. But the Tampa Bay Rays have decided the Sox no longer rate that kind of treatment any more.

The Rays have reclassified the Sox and taken them out of their highest tiers.

Oh, the shame.

Not that the Rays had much choice. It's hard to sell anybody on the idea that a last-place team is a premier opponent. There may not be many Rays fans, but they're not stupid.
