The Red Sox announce their 2011 ticket prices

Oct 26, 2010, 3:00 PM EDT

The Red Sox have announced their ticket prices for 2011. Yes, there are increases. You can read the whole press release here. From best I can tell, ticket prices overall will see only a modest increase — 2 % — but the bulk of the pain will be felt by the rich, with those in the more expensive seats seeing the biggest hikes.

As a result, a spokesman for the Republican National Committee just called this “the biggest ticket price increase in American history” and labeled the Red Sox “a socialist, confiscatory kleptocracy.”

Aren’t you glad people don’t talk about sports the way they talk about politics?

    can’t tell if that question was sarcastic, or do you not remember the way the writers handled the steroid era?

    I think your wrong there Craig. The Republicans would be saying this is the free market at work, if the Red Sox can get however much they can more power to them. The democrates would be the ones screaming Everyone should get the same seats for the same price.
