Besides businesses that divvy the tickets out, who the heck buys season tickets anyway? That's really expensive, and what do you do with tickets to 81 games? That's crazy.
My father and I split them for the Red Sox. We go 40 and 40 then we both typically sell about 15-20 games to friends and keep 20-25 for ourselves. We usually get to 4-5 games together a year. If I plan it out it comes to about a game a week which works pretty well for me.
With secondary marketplaces like StubHub, or the ability to electronically transfer tickets to a buddy if I can't get to a game that night, I think season tickets holders should be even higher now.
It is so very easy to buy good seats cheap now that you don't have to pony up the cash for 81 games to get great seats. It is also harder to sell most of your tickets at anything close to face value in most markets.
If the secondary market is selling below face value, and it is for most teams and games, then buying season tickets to go to 20 to 25 games a year is a serious overspend.
I want somebody experienced, not a rookie. I'd be very happy if they hired somebody like the Red Sox manager ... Valentine? Bobby Valentine.
But you're not paying face value. The only way you're paying face value is if the market for regular season tickets is higher or equal to the cost of the tickets.
