Good news for all you Marlins fans who were worried that you were going to have to pay prices inflated by people actually wanting to go to the games: Tickets for Sunday's game against the Mets are now online for as low as $2.99, and tix for next Tuesday's game against the Pirates can be had for $1.40. Looks like South Florida's already lost interest in the new stadium. Or in Ozzie "Fuckin' Grow Up, Motherfucker" Guillen; take your pick.

There were tens of thousands of tickets available Thursday afternoon, so if you're in the mood to see the 16-15 Marlins, roll on over to StubHub and spend the change you find in between your couch cushions on a professional baseball game.

thought the Marlins are counting on their new fan base of Julios to fill the stadium

Throw in parking and you got a deal.  Parking is a deal breaker at any price for a ticket!!

If you try to buy those $1.40 tickets, it will come out to about $13 and change for a pair with the StubHub fees. The seller will make maybe $2, but that is their fault for buying season tickets just so they can get a ticket to opening night. Newbs will be newbs.

You can buy seats for a Cubs game at Wrigley Field on Stubhub for a game next week against the Phillies starting at $4.99.  Cubs fans sure do hate their team.

Marlins are averaging 30,681 and their stadium has been 82 percent full (according to ESPN). Obviously the season is still young and the stadium is still fresh, but if they keep those numbers up for the entire season I think you would have to call it a success.  I think it's a bit early to say that nobody wants to go to the games.

Well, this is what one gets (Loria) for being an arrogant ass and building where the fan base never resided and never will reside.  Did he actually think that folks from Palm Beach and Broward would come down to the new stadium, spending all that gas money in heavy traffic and back again even on a weekend?  He blew it by accepting his Miami/Dade fascade and tax break, when the clear numbers were in Broward and Palm Beach (and before anyone says otherwise, he was offered land right at Joe Robbie Stadium to build on, offered land even by Don King in Palm Beach to build on, as well as offered the entire land mass that contains Ft. Lauderdale Stadium and the complex itself by Ft. Lauderdale....he turned them all down for his sweetheart robbing the taxpayers of Miami/Dade blind, Stadium Project.

But, but, but.....I thought  the Cuban community was all the support they needed and the reason they stole the Orange Bowl and took up roots in Li'l Havana. Hah. Screw the Marlins.

But it's probably an obstructed view seat way back in the middle deck.  But still, it's Wrigley.

Is that paid attendance or actual through the gate attendance? Most teams record tickets sold as attendance whether the holder actually shows up or not.

You can buy bleacher seats on Stubhub for tonite's game at Fenway for $9, which is WAY below face value. Those seats are definitely not obstructed. Availability of cheap tickets on Stubhub has nothing to do with anything other than the availability of cheap tickets on Stubhub. The Marlins just completed the best road trip in their history with a series of extremely entertaining games btw. But "Good Stuff 'Bout the Marlins" is not the title of the NT's upcoming book.

 If the seat is sold is what the team cares about most.  I have season tickets this year and sold my 2 tickets to the game I couldn't attend on Stub Hub for a small profit.  Obviously not everyone always shows up for one reason or another.  If the Marlins keep winning especially at home; tickets will likely sell, and people will show up.  It will also be good for people trying to sell on Stubhub.  Marlins may be in 4th in the division but only 2.5 games out of first.

Nah Maynard, I love the NewTimes probably as much as anybody not named Eric Barton. It just drives me nuts how negative they are about our local sports teams. These are our teams!

You tell him fat Hand! Guy obviously has a Hard On for the Marlins. New Times is a great resource for rub and tugs though so...
