Funny how the Cubs announce they will raise prices in the midst of bear mania and in the middle of their convention. Link (http://chicagosports.chicagotribune.com/sports/baseball/cubs/cs-070121cubsbrite,1,1719111.story?coll=cs-home-headlines)

Sullivan is wrong the new savior does not have a number issued yet and he is on the 40 man roster.

That article is idiotic. It starts out discussing ticket prices and then takes a bizarro Sammy Sosa slant:

And if you do buy one of those tickets, you won't see Sammy Sosa, even if he signs with Texas, because the Cubs won't play host to the Rangers in interleague play in 2007.

The Cubs, however, could see Sosa on the road this season. They face the Rangers in Arlington, Texas, on June 19-21.

:?:

Clearly, Sosa is to blame for ticket price increases.

:rolleyes:

The Cubs have said Jason Marquis can take Sosa's number 21, which has not been issued since Sosa left after the 2004 season. So far, Marquis is the only player on the 40-man roster who doesn't have a number listed next to his name.
Um, you were saying?

Although to be fair, Samardzija is now on the roster and he doesn't have a number.

Well, yea, the Cubs are raising ticket prices, but after the kind of season they had last year they earned it. I mean, who DOESN'T want to see a ninety six lost team?

I don't think it would be possible to raise ticket prices without the Soriano acquisition, as well as Dusty Baker returning, instead of Sweet Lou. Maybe...but I doubt it.
