  1. Attendance isn’t the only metric that matters. Rights fees have skyrocketed with more offense.
  2. I went. Showed up a few minutes before 11, I’d estimate about 200 there at that point. Got a free blanket, enjoyed Santa Bird and the statues, got a DD card and some other freebies and saved a bundle in the team store and the Authentics store. It was exactly as advertised. Rain sucked... I don’t see how you can complain about a free event that was as advertised.
  3. I’m just happy they are active in the draft. Can’t second guess the scouting they have internally; the type of pitcher selected makes sense and the flier on the batter with a crazy exit velocity is worth the few dollars it costs.
  4. Buck is a master of the crowds. He'll deflect tough questions and entertainingly turn them back on the person that asked them.
  5. I think it's more likely the Ravens move then the Orioles. Ravens 30 year deal expires at the end of 2028 season. Orioles with MASN guarantees, and the stadium will be profitable, may not be competitive. Ravens if they don't win will see more attendance seasons like this last one, and the city is not getting richer or drawing more people. Ravens could easily be the London team in a decade.

  8. He looks like a 4/5 starter and every club needs one. At the price paid obviously he's not as desirable but the real key is the club can't afford him blowing up the bullpen. Hopefully we get the 50% quality starts.
  9. An alcohol free section would be well liked. Dugout Club is a great deal.
  10. You know I always thought I could make money scalping but I believe in "ticket karma". That being said I have resold desirable games to pay for my plan and that is a win/win. Last year I'd sell the extra tickets I was allowed to buy on StubHub and that paid for my seat. It would not have bothered me if I was not able to buy extras. The club takes advantage of you at every opportunity so you need to take advantage when the ball is in your court too. In 2010...this just wasn't an issue.
  11. Hey Mayor, Thank you , I think we all understand the dollar for dollar exchange. If you buy a 29/81 game plan with the intention to resell though you have some undesirable games. So for simple math... you have 10 seats for Tuesday night for Toronto. They cost $100 total. You can only sell them for $7 each...you lose $30. Now you take your $100 with of LF nosebleeds to the ticket office and you trade them for two $50 Club Seats to a Yankees game on Saturday night in June. You sell them for $65 each. On your $100 you use to lose $30 (thus eating into your profits from Opening Day), now you made $30 and you don't have to sell as many tickets. You are thinking like a fan, not a scalper.
  12. The Orioles also sell those seats to bars and these tour groups. They force them to do 2 or 3 other games but they give them preference because they buy every year. The other reality is scampers have the same right to exchanges so you can play your useless Tuesday night Toronto tickets into Friday night Yankee games. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. In this thread we see why the servers get overloaded. The Orioles know exactly how many customers they have but people open 18 windows on three devices. I get the frustration, but most of you frustrated contribute to the reasons for the slowness.
  14. When you walk into McDonalds you don't get in line by the year you first bought a Big Mac. I'll agree communication has been very poor from the ticket but they have decided to give priority to the 81 and 29 game plan holders. Either upgrade or take your chances. They have also sold LF Upper Reserve seats to group sales groups who are already advertising packages. I'm sure those folks had to buy additional games. The sense of entitlement that you are entitled to anything in the future because you had something in the past is outdated in the sports world.
  15. I'd like to amend my earlier post to all the apologists. Had a great conversation with a rep in the ticket office this morning. He indicated further delays in the season ticket invoicing process. They obviously are putting a lot of thought into this with the creation and elimination of 2 new plans in the offseason. Very kind of them to acknowledge their issues and alert everyone that communication will be coming on Monday in that email a little while back. When people didn't get the autograph vouchers they wanted, THAT was a big deal. Lack of communication with your entire customer base is obviously no big issue.
