Ticket Prices Announced

There's a press release on Reds.com about the revised ticket prices. I like how the second paragraph seems to say that there were $1 tickets available last year. The team wasn't that bad.

So, let's take a look at our to-do list. New radio announcers: check. New pun-worthy pitching coach: check. Increased ticket prices: check. All that's left is actually improving the team and we're good to go.

CINCINNATI -- The Cincinnati Reds today announced ticket prices for individual games at Great American Ball Park during the 2007 regular season.

Depending on seat location, ticket prices for non-premium seating categories will increase from $1 to $4. Some seating categories have been combined and renamed for convenience to fans in selecting seating options.

The popular outer view level seats will remain $5 and next season will be sold in advance of game day. Approximately 38 percent of the ballpark seats will be priced at $19 or less.

Next season there will be three Premier Series against the Cleveland Indians (June 8-10), St. Louis Cardinals (June 29-July 1) and Chicago Cubs (July 27-29) and four Select Series against the Texas Rangers (June 15-17), Arizona Diamondbacks (July 6-8), San Diego Padres (August 10-12) and Florida Marlins (August 24-26).

Season ticket packages purchased in full by January 31 - including current season ticket holder renewals in addition to new accounts - will be priced at the 2006 season rates. Season ticket packages purchased by January 31 will include savings up to 34 percent over next year's individual ticket prices and will not be subject to all of the variable pricing scales.

Season ticket packages renewed or purchased after January 31 will be priced at 2007 season ticket prices but still will include savings up to 22 percent over next season's individual ticket prices.

All season packages will be available for sale December 1 at Redsfest or by visiting reds.com. For additional information on season packages, contact the Reds' season sales department at (513) 765-7500.

Gift certificates for the 2007 regular season now are available in $10 and $15 increments. They can be purchased online at reds.com or by phone at (513) 765-7400. Gift certificates also will be available at Redsfest.

David Weathers: The New Rich Aurilia

Just when you thought that Rich Aurilia was the only Red whose name was being bounced around in the media, in comes David Weathers.

His name popped up this weekend in the Philadelphia Inquirer, where he was mentioned again yesterday:

But Gillick thinks the Phillies not only can land that big fish in left field, but re-sign Randy Wolf, complete the rotation, and rebuild the bullpen. The Phillies won't be going after any Japanese pitchers, third basemen or otherwise. But they will look at righthanders Joe Borowski, David Weathers and others to fortify the bullpen. Mark DeRosa or Wes Helms could spell trouble for Nuñez at third base.

He comes up again in the Daily Herald, however briefly:

Just pondering

Think White Sox GM Kenny Williams is looking at free-agent relievers Joe Borowski or David Weathers?

Here's what I'm pondering: Is there any chance we'll get to see the Philles and White Sox get in a bidding war over Weathers? Because I think that might be something I'd like to see.
