In a move that's hardly surprising, the Monforts have mailed a letter to season ticket holders citing the desire to bring another World Series back to the region as their reasoning for boosting ticket prices for the second consecutive season. At least this season they have something of substance to point to as a basis for the hike. The size of the hike is fairly significant as well, which confirms to me that pre-orders are likely far exceeding what the team had projected they'd be this summer.
Okay, so now that they have shown where they will get the money, they need to show that they will use it to their stated goal of a World Series win. Otherwise, I suspect this short leash fans seem to be giving ownership will double nicely as a noose. Western justice, this isn't Boston or Chicago guys, you know that.
