After being extremely disappointed with the past two seasons, and not receiving a good value out of my Cubs tickets, I have already decided that if Mike Quade returns as Cubs manager for 2012, I will not purchase my usual package of bleacher tickets (15-20 games) next January or February. If I want to go to any games, I’ll buy single game tickets for dirt cheap, when people are struggling to give them away, and the Cubs are running several promotions to discount tickets, just to get people in the stands.
I’m on the season ticket waiting list, and I typically purchase the Flex package that is offered (9 games or 13 games) several weeks before individual seats go on sale. Then, I usually purchase additional single games to some of the best series (Cards, Sox, Yanks, etc.), when tickets go on sale to the general public.
With BCB being a soundboard for Cubs fans, which often gets read by members of the Cubs organization, I was curious how others felt about the same thing. And so, I’ve decided to create a poll.
Will you still purchase your usual amount of tickets if Mike Quade and/or Jim Hendry return to the Cubs in 2012?
