The Twins may not always be competing for a championship, but they’re definitely always competing for your entertainment dollar.

In Cinci, Legend's Club level tickets include food. In D.C., what costs a season ticket holder 30 here is 24 there. The good news about the club being bad is that by the third inning anymore, ushers don't care if you "upgrade."

I'll be doing what I did last year: waiting until May when the team is solidly in last place, and picking up a bunch of tickets on StubHub for $.99 a ticket. True story. I'll let someone else pay the Pohlads' racket pricing.

Interesting how the "Larry the Liquidator" Pohlads come up with a new way for squeezing every nickel out of the system and public. Rather than trying every conceivable way to improve the team with credible starting pitching for the past 3 years, they have managed to come in number 1 in the category "highest prices for last place teams". We're # 1...it's a beautiful story. You can trust the Pohlads, but not the guy on the street trying to make a few bucks selling tickets...right!

This really ticks me off. They are basically trying to save their own butts because the games are not sold out, so they are discrediting every other way for fans to get tickets so they can sell their own overpriced ones.

This "tiered pricing" sounds great, but not for season-ticket holders wishing to sell tickets for particular games. My brother has a pair of seats in the Legends' Club, and he pays a flat price for all 81 home games ($58 per ticket, I believe). But because of these new price "tiers" based on game desirability, for some games the tickets are marked with a face value in the $30s, and others in the $70s etc. This makes it pretty hard to sell a pair of tickets for what he paid for them ($58 each), when some are marked with a value well below this. They should mark season tickets with the flat price, and only show the tiered prices on single-game tickets.
