I'll join the chorus of people saying SoxFest is overpriced. It seems like they've really had trouble selling that thing the past couple years, and now they are coming off a historically bad season. You would think that would lead to lower prices for this event, but it has not.
Granted, I would never buy a hotel package. I can't fit it around my work schedule, and I'm not much of an autograph collector anyway. However, I would buy a day pass for Saturday and listen to the seminars and ask questions, if I thought it was reasonably priced. Alas, the cost is higher than what I'm willing to pay for that experience, so I don't go.
