A very strange sequence of events in Game 5 of the 2011 World Series made headlines as the Texas Rangers defeated the St. Louis Cardinals 4-2. The Cardinals are returning home for Game 6 of the series tonight (after it was postponed yesterday) down three games to two and will be fighting to force a decisive Game 7 on their homefield. Can they overcome some bullpen decisions and base-running blunders and bring this series to a tie for the third time (fourth, I suppose, if you count 0-0 as a tie), or will the Rangers win on a cool and damp night in Busch Stadium to capture their first world championship?
Much is being made of BullpenPhoneGate and how exactly signals were crossed for the Cardinals and manager Tony LaRussa, and there’s a message on the ticket front that’s almost as confusing. Game 7, by definition, is IT in the World Series. The season’s going to end that day and your team will either be consumed by euphoric victory or wallowing in “so close” defeat. It’s your last chance to see a live baseball game this season, waiting around won’t get you a better deal on the next day (or ever again, perhaps – right, Cubs fans?). And for your wallet’s sake, it’s not a huge gamble either. If the Rangers win Game 6 and Friday’s game just never happens, you get your money back.
Game 6 versus Game 7 average prices
|World Series: Texas Rangers at St Louis Cardinals - World Series Game 6||2011-10-26||$548.31|
|World Series: Texas Rangers at St Louis Cardinals - World Series Game 7 (If Necessary)||2011-10-27||$601.42|
But the secondary market – and the demand that drives its prices – doesn’t seem to be getting the memo. At the moment, prices for Game 7 tickets aren’t towering above Game 6 tickets, on average (only 9.7%). So let’s take a quick look on some of the deals you can find out there right now. If the St. Louis Cardinals tie things with the Texas Rangers tonight, you’ll be even happier because of the value you found today.
