For the Twins, spring training vs regular season, not much difference in the quality of play!

If the Twins intend on having any AAA caliber players in their starting lineup in April, then these nudgeup prices should carry over to the regular season as well, Else get out of town.

Well why wouldn't you after last seasons stellar play. I especially enjoyed watching our powerhouse pitching staff and that steal from Japan. I guess I'll have to pass on your kind offer of really expensive, really horrible baseball. I'll just have to find somewhere else to get warm $7.50 (plastic) bottle of beer.

Twins are in the middle for spring training ticket prices. Less expensive than Yankees or Boston but higher than Pirates, Marlins, etc. At spring training, you're there for the sunshine and crack of the bat - not paying for a major league-quality game.

This group just doesn't miss a chance to stick it to the towns and fans which produced new facilities in Florida and Minnesota and which suffered through a 99 loss MLB season. I could not be less impressed with this team on so many levels.

Crucial to - and lacking from - the story is that the Twins set a spring training attendance record last season, so it's obvious that "the average American" whoever that is, CAN afford to attend. And if a team is selling out all its games, that means ticket prices are too low. I know that won't stop the whining, because some people just like to whine.

99 losses and still they raise ticket prices for SPring Training. I shudder to think of what the price increase would have been if the had only lost 98 games.
