Some weekday games are as low as $42 per ticket. The Red Sox and the Yankees aren't what they used to be and their games are all on weekdays. And the Sox schedule doesn't have any "marquis" summer weekend series against higher interest teams like the Cards, Giants, Nats or Brewers etc. Our interleague games are the Marlins and the Mets...yuck. Not really an exciting schedule this year.
This could be the first year that season ticket holders lose money when reselling the cubs games. At least there are only two games. The only game that will definetly sell for a premium is opening day and maybe Elvis Night since it is AJ's return to the Southside. The Marlins series would have made for some interesting games but we all know what happened with that team. The other wacky thing about this season is that there are only two Saturday night fireworks scheduled including one in the middle of September.
