Tigers series drawing little secondary interest

A good road trip gone bad
Yankees limited Vazquez between-start work

As Johnny Damon and the Detroit Tigers stumble into town for a mid-week four-game set, the Motown Nine’s post-season dreams have all but faded. They team is in third place at 57-60, and they find themselves 10.5 games behind the AL Central-leading Twins. As such, as our partners at TiqIQ report, the secondary market for this week’s set is less than robust. On average tickets are selling at 35 percent below season levels, and only Thursday’s afternoon affair sees the average price approach $100. TiqIQ has a bit on the Johnny Damon factor as well.

While the demand isn’t quite up to par, this week presents a great opportunity to score some quality seats for a good price. Check out the stock at RAB Tickets.

    Is the data implying Johnny Damon isn’t a True Yankee™ (nor Royal, A, Red Sox)?

    It’s crappy out and supposed to be crappy for the week. It’s understandable.

      True. It’s horribly humid in nyc.

    Considering 7/30-8/1 was a weekend series (Friday-Sunday) and the next four games are not………do I even need to say more?

    • TiqIQ

      swo, we actually looked at that and the Damon/Fenway series was about 25% higher than a typical weekend series in Fenway. The current Damon/YankeeStadium series is about 35% lower than the Yankees’ season average.

      There’s always other factors that play in, but between those two numbers, we thought there was enough there to suggest that Yanks fans are less interested in Damon’s return than Sox fans were.

    I don’t think Johnny Damon was ever a “real” Yankee. Then again.. only Jeter, Rivera, and Posada are “real” Yankees.

    Of course Boston fans payed more when Damon returned than Yankees fans. It was Yankees-Redsox. Those tickets always go for more than vs. the Tigers
