If There Was Ever A Time for Frank McCourt to Emulate The Red Sox, It's Now

Sports Illustrated reports that the Boston Red Sox will not raise ticket prices in 2009:

BOSTON (AP) -- For the first time in 14 years, the Boston Red Sox aren't increasing any ticket prices at Fenway Park for the 2009 season.

Prices range from $12 to $125 for tickets bought after Dec. 17. There is a discount for earlier purchases once tickets go on sale Dec. 13.

Red Sox President Larry Lucchino says the team knows that fans are facing challenging economic times and wanted to give them a break.

Fans with contracts for premium seats can keep their ticket prices the same if they agree to extend those contracts for one year.

The team plans to add about 350 seats at Fenway Park before next season.

Wow, and they're even giving early purchasers a discount! Sounds like a neat idea, doesn't it, Frank? Frank?

If the Dodgers sign Manny or CC, a ticket price hike is guaranteed.

If they don't sign either of those two, a price hike is pretty much guaranteed anyway. Who else is going to pay for Andruw and Juan?
