With Boston in town, resale ticket prices jump

WCBS 880 tops MLB cumulative radio ratings
Olney: Yanks considered Willie Harris before the deadline

Whenever the Red Sox come to Yankee Stadium in August, something special seems to happen. Last year, the two teams played an epic 15-inning affair that ended with an Alex Rodriguez blast off of Junichi Tazawa en route to a sweep. What will it be this weekend?

This year, the games have lost some of their immediacy. Boston comes to town in third place either six or seven games behind the Yankees, and the Red Sox are only hanging around the fringes of the pennant race. If they can’t take 3 of 4 from the Yankees this weekend, they’ll have a very tough climb to get back into the October picture. Still, the tickets are going like hotcakes.

Our partners at TiqIQ have put together the following graphic to show where ticket prices are today. Even though the Red Sox are hurting and limping along, this series’ average resale price is still 20 percent above season levels. Take a peek at the graphic below, and make sure to check out RAB Tickets for more pricing information and game needs.

    HAHAHA. Cant wait to watch the hobbling Red Sox this weekend! Should make for a good laugh. Remember earlier in the season when Sox fans brought bubble wrap to games to taunt Jeter?! I think every fan at the Stadium should do the same for the Sox entire team! Oh the irony!

      man, don’t do that…we’ll end up having Wood, Gardner and CC go on the DL!

      Shouldn’t get overly cocky, Yankees have been playing like shit lately.

    I was able to get a bleacher ticket for $50 for tomorrow’s game, thanks RAB Tickets :)
