Today is the last day to get premium flex packs. The cheapest Friday or Saturday ticket I could get for the Angels series was $60 a piece before fees. Face value for NLDS tickets are less than that. But unless Albert is hurt and doesn't travel with the team, making the seats a total loss, I'm betting the secondary market is going to move up from there as the date approaches. The hype is going to be in full force.

Our ticket strategy is always to buy premium games at face value before just single game seats go on sale and then buy the rest of our games on the secondary market. This allows us to drive down our average ticket price. Those $5 seats really help you average out the $30-60 you might pay for weekend Cubs games or stuff like the Pujols series.

These are the kind of schemes that keep us finishing second in the bidding for premium players Hoot.

If you had told Mozeliak Albert would have 188 HR 653 RBIs after only 7 years, he would have jumped at the chance to sign him for $250 million.

Owners only worry about the player being on the DL for 3-4 years out of the contract.

You guys are delusional if you think Albert Pujols is "costing" anyone while averaging 26 HR 94 RBIs a season? His WAR could be -14. Owners wouldn't care.

The dude is averaging 10 more RBIs than Matt Carpenter has ever had in one season!

You can't ask for more productivity than 188 HRs 653 RBIs in 7 years?

Esp considering Albert is probably worth $25 million a year to owners just sitting in the dugout?

Albert's contract couldn't be going much better, IF you're realistic?

But sure, if you're determined to say it was a mistake, then just point to "WAR" or whatever stupid little stat that proves how "bad" the contract is?

Meanwhile, back in reality, Mo would have taken 26 HR 94 RBIs in a freakin heartbeat!

Dewitt was only worried about 3-4 years of "0 HR 0 RBIs".

You've got to be one stupid **** to think 188 HR 653 RBIs in 7 years isn't enough.
