How do you win four World Series and still be the third best owner in Boston (Behind Robert Kraft and Wyc Grousbeck)? Well just ask Red Sox owner John Henry.
Time and time again he’s tried weasel himself out of problems he put himself in. We haven’t forgotten what ownership did to Terry Francona or parting ways with a proven GM in Theo Epstein to appease that snake Larry Lucchino. Not only that, he’s fired two GMs within two years of winning titles. What the hell is wrong with this guy?
Now he wants to raise ticket prices again. As if the Red Sox don’t already have one of the most expensive ticket prices in sports, let’s just keep adding on!
This ownership is almost as bad as Bruins ownership (perhaps I’ll get to write something about that one day). But anyways… TICKET PRICES.
A year ago I wrote an article detailing how much it costs a family of four to attend a Red Sox game. At that point in 2018, it was $337 for four decent seats to a game (not factoring in food or parking). After 2018, it was reasonable to have ticket prices go up because they had just won a World Series. But to raise them again after this shit-show of a season? My god.
How spineless do you have to be to keep wanting more and more out of your fans who see the writing on the wall: baseball is dying. Maybe they’re just trying to squeeze every last dollar before they can sell the team to a poor sap who doesn’t realize that the revenue for the MLB won’t be the same in a few years.
Do you think Boston fans are stupid Mr. Henry? We’re onto your bullshit shenanigans. The time is ticking. Be a decent human or watch the league/sport die out.
