Orioles Ticket Plans

Recommended Posts

I went to Winter Warmup and they had a sales booth set up. I went in, and it was ticket plans they were selling.

For those who don't know (as I didn't) the O's are presenting 2 plans as "Holiday Packs"

- A 5 Game plan, listed as $99, which includes a ticket for Opening Day March 6, Wed Apr 29, Mon May 25, Sun June 28 and Wed Aug 19.

- A 3 Game plan listed as starting at $45, Sat Aug 8 or Sun Aug 9, Sat Apr 25 and June 19.

If you buy into the Holiday pack you also get a free knit holiday beanie.

Imagine, getting an Opening Day ticket for a 5 game plan. I know they're gong to be bad, but still, that's surprising.

Here's an even better deal...

Get NO plan.. and buy great seats for OD at face value from the O's or below face value on Stubhub. BYOB (bring your own beanie), though.

Imagine back a few years ago, as a "black" season ticket holder (29 games) I was guaranteed my seats for OD, as well as the chance to buy the same number after the full-season ticket holders did the same.  My first year was 2014, and I got similar seats in the field box for my friends.  The next year, they were all down to the foul poles and stayed there for a few years until 2017/18.  As an orange (13) member, you were guaranteed the number of tickets that you had, but not the same seat.  

It's a pretty sad state of affairs that OD tickets are part of a five game plan right now.

I doubt they sell many of these opening day plans.

People on here are pretty cool, and we usually get a thread a month or so before OD when the O’s just release OD tixs to the general public for single game purchase. I’ve done that like 3-4 times since 2013.

I think there will be plenty of tickets available this year even with it being a Yankee game.   As it is during the week and in March it will prevent more Yankee fans traveling.

Based on Fronby’s numbers and Elias’ moves concerning the MLB roster, it is clear the team could care less about season ticket holders.  I heard that message loud and clear.

You were there to hear it?

I wouldn’t go for free. The price of parking or the train from Glen Burnie is more than this team is worth. I’ll enjoy potentially the last season in Frederick instead.

Anyone coming from the south should park at the North Lithicum station.  There are over 300 free parking spaces and you don't have to deal with stadium traffic.  It's where I parked coming from DC

Just to remind, the MLB is getting rid of Frederick. Not the Orioles.

At the end of the day, the Frederick thing is just a rumor/best guess anyway. There's really no telling what will happen, and I wouldn't describe it as likely at this point.

    • That's why people get nostalgic about the pre-free agency days.  There was no discussion of player retention beyond "is he still a positive for the team?"  If yes, then keep him. But I've long since made peace with the fact that the old setup is both awful for players and never, ever coming back.  While fans loved having Mike Cuellar for eight years on absurdly team-friendly terms, maybe Mike Cuellar would have liked some say in where he played and for how much.  And I don't blame him one bit.
    • I’m very jealous of anyone who has a pension as opposed to (or in addition to) a 401 k type plan.    One of the real perks of being a government worker, for example.   I’ve made a nice living as a lawyer but what I’ve saved is what I’ve got coming to me, and nothing else.    My firm won’t be paying me a dime after I retire.   
    • I could see Buck steering the ship for couple years while the Astros deal with the ramifications of this scandal. I think the last thing the Astros want to do here is go with an unknown quantity. 
    • I know it seems counterintuitive, since there are 27 outs in a game and only 4-5 runs scored on average, so that seems like more like .2 runs per out.    But have a look at this base-out matrix, which shows the expected number of runs scored in an inning depending on which bases are occupied and how many outs there are.   This matrix is based on actual game data, not theory.   https://www.google.com/amp/s/thebaseballscholar.com/2017/08/14/sabermetrics-101-re24/amp/ Let’s take the simplest example, the leadoff batter.    If he grounds out (so now it’s bases empty, one out), the expected runs in the inning are .243.    If he’s safe at first (so runner on first, nobody out), the expected runs are .831.    So, the increase in expected runs between making that play or not is .590.      There are other situations on the chart where the differential is higher or lower than that.    On the high side, let’s say you’ve got runners on 1st and 2nd and one out.    Make a play there to record an out and hold the runners, and the expected runs are only .343.    Fail to make that play and so it’s bases loaded and only one out, and the expected runs increase to 1.520. Anyway, someone did a weighted average of all these scenarios and came up with .6 for an average.    If I remember correctly.       
    • Connolly was and apparently still is literally Buck's PR man, so I'm not surprised by his thoughts on this matter. 
    • Dan Connolly has a good column in The Athletic about it.   He said that a few weeks ago, he would have thought the Astros were the LAST team that would ever consider hiring Buck for the reasons you give.   And that those reasons still exist.   But in terms of taking over leadership of a talented team in crisis, in terms of making sure no further cheating takes place and protecting the integrity moving forward, suddenly he MIGHT be the best guy they could bring in.   It's a good read.
    • I was single for a while in 2010.  4 different women made me watch "He's just not that into you" with them and 1 made me watch "Eat Pray Love".    And I even watched "Sex and the City 2" a couple of times.   Let me tell you Sex and City 2 is not a good movie by anyone's viewpoint.   If I could get through them a wife should be able to make it through a war movie here or there.
