I now this is redundant to my OP- but they are just getting lazy when it comes to marketing, etc.
Small example- I go to the game Friday night- as I walk in I'm handed a small, black and white piece of paper with the 2013 schedule on it.
I go to Miller Park Saturday night- I'm handed a rally towel (still fighting for wild card), a team photo and a nice, large magnetic schedule with the 2013 chedule- really nice and on the fridge at home.
