Red Sox Tickes 41% Below Average For Series Vs Angels
The Boston Red Sox have actually played some pretty decent baseball in the last couple weeks despite trading away almost their entire starting pitching rotation. But the Los Angeles Angels have also played well lately, and they’re next on the Red Sox schedule. The Angels are currently tied for the best record in all of baseball, thanks to one of the best offenses in the league, and a pitching staff that has been better than advertised. Boston Red Sox tickets are currently averaging $62.44 for the series on the secondary market, which is 41% below the season average at Fenway Park.
8/18 - LAA CJ Wilson vs. BOS Brandon Workman | Avg. Price: $66.83 | Get-in Price: $20
The Red Sox have their work cut out for them in the first game of the series. They’re sending out Brandon Workman for his 11th start, and the first ten weren’t that inspiring. He’s lost his last six games, and has deserved the record during that time. He’s going up against CJ Wilson on the Angels and, lucky for Red Sox fans, Wilson has been the Angels worst starter this season. He’s issued the most walks on the team by a wide margin, and has given up way too many home runs this year. He currently has a 4.71 ERA and 4.35 FIP. Surprisingly, Red Sox vs Angels tickets for the game are currently the most expensive of the series with a $66.83 average price and $20 get-in.
8/19 - LAA Jered Weaver vs. BOS Allen Webster | Avg. Price: $61.40 | Get-in Price: $15
Allen Webster is making his fifth start of the season for the Red Sox, and has pitched better than his ERA would indicate. He currently has a 4.79 ERA and a worse 5.41 FIP, but a lot of that is from one start where he allowed four runs in less than three innings of work. But in his other three starts he hasn’t allowed more than three earned runs, and has made it to the sixth inning all three times. He was even an out away from going seven against the Angels when the two played in Anaheim. The average price of the game is $61.40 and the get-in price is $15.
The most seasoned starter still in the Red Sox rotation is Clay Buchholz. He’s the only original member of the starting rotation still on the team, but that doesn’t mean he’s had a particularly good season. After putting up dominant numbers before landing on the DL last season, Buchholz ERA is up to 5.79. He has been one of the big reasons the Red Sox fell apart this season, just a year after winning the World Series. Red Sox vs Angels tickets for the game is the cheapest of the series at $55.64 and with a get-in price of $15.
8/21 - LAA Matt Shoemaker vs. BOS Rubby De La Rosa | Avg. Price: $65.89 | Get-in Price: $17
The most consistent pitcher remaining on the Red Sox staff might be Rubby De La Rosa. He hasn’t been masterful, and is likely to regress over the remainder of the season, but so far he has a 3.79 ERA in his 12 starts. The problem is he has a 4.55 FIP because he allows too many home runs, walks over three batters per nine innings, and has only a slightly above average strikeout rate. The average price of the game is $65.89 with a $17 get-in price.
