$ox Are At It Again
Red Sox Owners are now in the travel package business

And what a bargain: Packages START at just $899 per person!!
This little travel package is designed to get around MLB rules that cap ticket prices, so...

Let me ask you this: Who is the real scalper??

"This was sent to us by a friend of the Hub who happens to be a Red Sox season ticket holder. No, he isn't a yuppie scum at Fenway just to be seen. He won't be the idiot behind home plate on the cell phone waving at the TV cameras. He is just a hard working guy who saves and works hard to afford overpriced Grandstand tickets, dividing them with 5 friends and, yes, occasionally selling tickets above face value in order to pay for some of his $20,000 bill that he is required to pay 6 months before opening day. In the years before the bandwagon, he often was stuck paying for tickets that went unused, or at least as freebies to friends and neighbors. The Nouveau Sox Owners just don't get it...So get out."

They email spam that is addressed: "To our valued season ticket holder". In the meantime, they are targeting season ticket holders that sell games that they can't use on Ebay to help soften the blow from the highest ticket prices in baseball. The real scalpers, the big ticket agencies and unlicensed thugs around Fenway, are left to do whatever they please. Yeah, we know about the lawsuit, but also know that it is simply a tactic designed for the Hollywood-Lawyer-Trader Owners to get a cut. We smell another partnership. Hey Red Sox: Don't you find it a little hypocritical that Ad revenue DURING your Red Sox broadcasts is coming from ACE Ticket and STUBHUB???
AND FOR THAT MATTER:

WEEI, your Cartel partner-in-crime, doesn't seem to have a problem with running these ads, or peddling paternity test kits all day long. Hopefully, this Circus leaves town soon...
