Re: 9-News: 40.014 – Nine, Freddy Delgado, Come to Terms

Obviously, I'd like Pineda to be ready this year to push either Delgado or Barnard out into the pen. Outside chance that In-sung Yi might come back from his injury and make that happen, too. But if nothing else, Delgado is a good insurance policy, and he bumped my fan interest a little, too. So mayb...

What Happens When You Cut Ticket Prices by $2

As noted in the past episode of this series , over the past five seasons we had 25 cases of teams raising prices by $2 or more. On the flipside, only nine teams have <em>dropped</em> prices by $2 or more—or technically, $1.94 or more, since I made the line down that far just because I wanted to. Reg...

Re: Lets take a look at the Frick League

Nice discussion. In the Heartland, I think you're sleeping on Omaha a bit, and Chicago will be better than you think. Louisville is a player or two away, but assuming Commie Child survives his injury recovery then 2041 will be a Slugger push. Des Moines is going to be a good team by the end of the y...

My general rule of thumb when you're in a full-blown sale is that I need to be closing any deal that seems reasonable.

The Effect of Increasing Ticket Prices By $2

After forum posts and media guide pieces that suggested we could do better at managing ticket prices, it’s become all the rage around the league to default to raising prices. You can see it in the charts I dropped yesterday—particularly in 2037, right after the big rush. At the time of those posts, ...

Here's Hawaii--a team with very low fan interest and who hasn't been winning, but start with middling-high prices ($16): | Team | Year | Ticket Prev | Wins Prev | FI Prev | Ticket+ | Ticket Now | Win Now | FI Now | Win+ | FI+ | Att+ | Gate+ | Budget+ | |------|:----:|:-----------:|:---------:|:-----...

Re: Interesting Ticket Charts of the Day

I need to figure out how to present the things I'm looking at and thinking about in a digestible fashion, but at present I'm coming to think that the big push to drive ticket prices up is probably not really good policy across the board. Instead, I'm thinking there are obvious times it's a good prac...

Re: Interesting Ticket Charts of the Day

Here's Vancouver over the same years...they are interesting because their fan interest has been middle 50s (fairly low), but their prices have been fairly high. Note how ecah time they drop their prices, they make a lot more money and therefore gain future budget, and how each time they raise prices...

I've been doing a lot of work on this topic this AM. Edmonton is an interesting case, and doesn't actually match a lot of others because of that Landis run. Here's data I've pulled out of StatsPlus...(the "+" categories are relative to the year previous) Edmonton's 2036-2039: | Team | Year | Ticket ...

Re: Interesting Ticket Charts of the Day

Here's what i see...ticket prices went up about $2 on a $16 basis in 2037, and attendance fell about 300,000 heads per team in the year. That seems like a natural event to me. All total, though, ticket revenue edged up, though until last year it wasn't quite record setting.
