Secondary market again under average for weekend set

By

The Seattle Mariners, as Cliff Corcoran detailed in his extensively entertaining series preview at the new Pinstriped Bible, aren’t a very good team. The team is 48-73 and have somehow managed to average 3.28 runs scored per game. It is no surprise then that tickets for the weekend are selling at 20 percent below average.

Surprisingly, tonight’s game — the one top-notch pitching match-up that features Felix Hernandez and A.J. Burnett — is the one with the lowest prices. Tomorrow’s game, an afternoon affair on a nice day, is selling strong, but with bad weather moving in on Sunday, the prices dip a bit. With so many New Yorkers out on vacation this week and next and an uninspiring Mariners club in town for some mid-August games, it’s no wonder ticket prices are a bit depressed. As always, grab your seats from RAB Tickets.

    Are these prices only based on ticket sales in the secondary market, or do they include all ticket sales?

    Do you think as we get closer to September and the playoff odds increase almost daily that the market will continue to be soft? People may just save up their money for playoff tickets rather than go to a less-meangingfull September game,

    • If the Red Sox mount a charge and a real pennant race ensues, I think prices will go up. The games next month vs. Tampa and Boston will probably be expensive too, but otherwise, it’s not much of a race. The PO Odds report have the Yanks reaching the playoffs 90 percent of the time. It’s not that thrilling of a race right now.
