I realize that no one is holding a gun to my head blah, blah, blah, I understand basic economics and I know how businesses are run. I'll likely re-up, but I honestly feel taken advantage of and will articulate this to my rep if she ever calls me before I receive an invoice.
Yeah, the Sox should absorb the costs so they don't hurt loyal fans' feelings.
And then they should field the roster with AAA players going forward just so that everyone is happy and costs are kept down.
You think your Season Ticket is worthless now, wait until this team becomes a consistant 90 loss team each year by fielding a crappy roster all for trying to keep loyal fans' ticket prices down.
