The Sox got this one wrong - big time. Since there was such a delay from the Sox with this information, I was hopeful the delay was a result of price tweaking. I guess they didn't get the message over the last several years that this is too expensive for the casual fan, or even some die-hards based on the lack of attendance.

After all of the surveys the Sox have sent out over the course of the last year, they still think it's OK to charge people a young fortune for its fan convention? I just don't get it. They're so out-of-touch with their fan base, it's not even funny. It'll be comical to watch the Sox all but get down on their knees and plead with people to attend this event once December and January roll around.
