An epic collapse + a quiet Hot Stove season = raised ticket prices!

    I guess you could say the same thing about the Yankees and probably 20 other franchises.
    It's what teams do...they raise prices every year.

    WHAT?? You mean it doesn't matter how much a team pays its players or if it is successful on the field? They'll raise ticket prices regardless, based on demand and market value, not any other factors? Amazing.

    Mets + 2007 (including off-season) =


    Plus, they also wasted an MVP-caliber season by Wright. 30-30 seasons, improved 3B defense and red-hot Septembers don't come very often.

    The Detroit Tigers have spent money over the moon this offseason, and amazingly enough have NOT raised ticket prices.

    Not that Uncle Ilitch is a philanthropist or anything dumb like that -- he simply found out with the Red Wings what happens when you crank your ticket prices beyond the screaming point in a depressed local economy.

    Once that sellout balloon busts, it busts in a big way.

    In the new Sports Illustrated, MLB team representatives were asked to describe their team in one word.

    Omar Minaya, Mets GM: "Championship-caliber."

    Hey, the hyphens join the words. Counts as one. Get off Omar's ass.

    How come Omar didn't say "choketastic"?
