If you are a Boston Red Sox fan and think you deserve some reward for enduring the 2011 turmoil, think again. Bargains on Red Sox tickets are hard to come by during any given year. The organization has announced that the price of tickets for the 2012 MLB season will remain the same as last year.

What do you expect for a team that has sold out every single game for the past 9+ seasons? There will also be a lot of mystery going into the 2012 season. For starters, manager Terry Francona and general manager Theo Espstein have left Boston. Free agents like David Ortiz could also make an exit from Boston this off season as well. The prices for Red Sox tickets may stay the same but the demand and consumption of tickets will likely decrease for the upcoming season. Especially if the Red Sox are as slow out of the gates as they were in 2011.

In related news, New York Yankees General Manager Brian Cashman has acknowledged interest in free agents such as C.J. Wilson, Mark Buerhle, Edwin Jackson and Roy Oswalt. Adding only two of these aces will deflate the Boston Red Sox hopes of reaching the playoffs next season. Count on it.
