Ken, just imagine what the Tribe would look like if our payroll even approached $150M, let alone $200M+

I'd been fine this year if not for dropping 2 of our starting pitchers to injury...that hurts when you're playing for best of 7.

Yeah hell of an outing by Cub's bats and pitching last night.  One thing I know for sure is you wont see as many Indian's fans at Wrigley as you did Cub's fans at Progressive.....they cant afford it!!!

Going to be hard to shut down the pine of the Cub's...amazing talent and the mystique of Schwarber has just raised the level through the roof.

See Indian's taking 1 of 3 at Wrigley, then fight to win 2 at home.....ugghh  ???

I grew up batting as first baseman and continued as a pitcher. I was lefty pitcher yet I learned first to hit as right hander. It's a dynamic that I like in baseball, and should be the same across leagues....all pitchers hit or none hit IMO.

$100 standing tickets in Cleveland went for over $1000...that's crazy and seriously prohibitive for many.  What bothers me more is Cleveland's upper deck in right field still had the seats blocked off with advertising barricades.  So many tickets that could have been sold and so many more fans that could have gone.



Yeah, it's just crap. Fans are getting priced out the games and it's a shame. Just trying to take my family of four to a Colts or Pacers game in the regular season is ridiculous. Postseason is prohibitive.

They likely don't have the stadium support staff to work the increased capacity.

I think football has a rule as well. I remember reading if a team covers seats to reduce capacity, therefor avoiding blackouts and saving labor on staff, they cannot add that capacity back if they make it into the post season. Typically the Raiders cover much of the upper seating, so if they continue to do well, owner, city and county are out a lot of money. Too early to search hard, so just believe me.

I see. Figured it had to be something like that....giving up cash for seats that would be sold seemed crazy.

Come to Cleveland Jon- Take the whole family to Cleveland Clown's football game for about $10 ticket (price for $60 tik on street day of game).   ;D
