Agreed. For the Cubs, that's a steal. Hell, for the Brewers, Twins, even the White Sox, that's a bargain. Now the Cardinals, on the other hand...
If that's for a St. Louis game, that seems way overpriced. For that kind of money, they'd damn well better send a car to pick me up and bring me home. Wait, that's ridiculous and unreasonable. I'm in Omaha, so they'll need to send the team plane. I'm not traveling all the way to St. Louis in some damn limo.
And pre-game field access. I'll have to have that. That's just non-negotiable. And I'd want a direct line to the dugout during the game because I may have some thoughts about strategy. (In a tribute to Ed, I might call for a first-inning bunt, but that's assuming the Cards could get somebody on base, and that's a lot to expect). And the exclusive right to get guys up and throwing in the bullpen. Whoever and whenever I choose. I might have the next day's starter throw about five innings out there just because I could. And that 35 bucks better be family pricing, and by "family" I mean everyone even distantly related to me, my buddies and my softball team so they'll need to send a bigass plane. If all of that's included, then yeah, the price might be about right, although I'd try to see if they'd come down to around 30, maybe 25.
Unless, of course, it's for a Cubs game in St. Louis, in which case, that's seems like a really good deal.
