Subway Series Most Expensive MLB Games Left In April

Major League Baseball is on the verge of concluding its first full month of the 2015 regular season, and while much exciting baseball has already been played, there is plenty more to come. The excitement of the games thus far are starting to translate into demand for upcoming games for the rest of this month and beyond.

 

With information provided by TicketNetwork.com, we dive into the five most expensive remaining games in the month of April, where the Subway Series between the New York Mets and New York Yankees hogs the spotlight.

 

Whether baseball fans want to attend just multiple Subway Series games or any other game on the April schedule, TicketNetwork.com is running a baseball promotion until the end of the month where purchasers will receive a 10% off promo code for their next order after making a qualifying baseball ticket purchase. That should provide even more incentive for fans to make their way to the ballpark for any of the below games.

 

4/25/2015 | New York Yankees vs. New York Mets | Yankee Stadium | Average Price: $173.04 | Get-in price: $52

 

The Subway Series highlights this month’s remaining games, as all three games in this series appear in the top five most expensive games remaining for April. Aside from Saturday night’s game coming in at No. 1, the game on Friday, April 24 appears second, and the series finale on Sunday, April 26 appears fourth.

 

4/24/2015 | New York Yankees vs. New York Mets | Average Price: $149.96 | Get-in Price: $43

 

The Yankees are usually the New York team in the baseball spotlight, but the Mets had other plans to begin 2015. Between their young, talented rotation and timely hitting thus far this season, the Mets are leading the National League East division with an 11-3 record, including a perfect 8-0 record at home (stats are as of 4/22). This series will be held at Yankee Stadium, where the Yankees have surprisingly started 2-4. The second-place Bronx Bombers have gone on a bit of a run as of late, however, winning four of their past five entering Wednesday night’s game. The rubber match of the Subway Series will see an average price of $97.22 with a Get-in of $23.

 

4/25/2015 | Oakland Athletics vs. Houston Astros | Average Price: $103.31 | Get-in Price: $18

 

Yes, it’s early. But how many people knew the Houston Astros were leading the way in the American League West division? Houston’s one half-game ahead of the Athletics, so this game at O.co Coliseum may result in some jockeying within the feisty division. Oakland took two out of three in their first series against Houston on the road.

 

4/26/2015 | Baltimore Orioles vs. Boston Red Sox | Average Price: $89.10 | Get-in Price: $14

 

Unsurprisingly, a matchup between two popular and so-far successful teams, the Orioles and Red Sox, has landed on this list. With this game come the potential ramifications of helping to settle first place in the AL East in the early going. Oriole Park at Camden Yards will host first-place Boston for the fifth most expensive remaining game left in April. The Orioles are trailing the Red Sox by one game in the standings, and both teams are in the top ten as far as offense goes, which could lead to a slugfest. Fans can be prepared to enjoy some sun with some runs scored in Baltimore on Sunday.

Mark Simon Compares A Couple of Texas Pitchers Too

Shannon sometimes doesn’t give himself enough credit about the posts he comes up with. For a fat(his words,not mine) blogger from his basement he is almost always ahead of the curve. He compares Cliff Lee to Mike Scott of the 1986 Houston Astros. You can read his post here.

Mark Simon, of ESPN New York, also makes the same comparison and a few others too.

Playoffs Outsider: Yankees honor Freddie Sez

Hey Mets fans,

I am home tonight enjoying the couch and HDTV while some Yankees fan enjoys my jacked-up-on-Stubhub seats (I told you guys I am a capitalist) but my Yankees friend Mr. Sunshine is there.

Sunshine enjoys his privacy so I won’t post the pictures from his seats (he has some good ones, this guy must make lots of money) but he did send over this shot.  (Click on it for a much bigger version).

I’m glad to see that the Yankees honored a fan.  Cool move.

As I typed this Hamilton hit this one out.  Attention sportswriters: you can park your generic “Andy is a winner, true Yankee, Joe is a genuis” column and dust off the other one, the “Girardi blew it and should’ve started Andy in Game 2” article.   However, it’s early..maybe you’ll get to use that first one yet.

Oh and John Smoltz just talked about the quiet crowd that “you’re not used to at Yankee Stadium.”  Well John you are technically correct….at Yankee Stadium it was loud.  At Fake New Yankee Stadium it is quiet.   Lousy upper deck design and fat cats (and Mr. Sunshine, who does cheer) down low.
