Angels Tickets For Series Vs Royals Available For 32% Below Halos Season Average


Recommended Posts

The Los Angeles Angels host the Kansas City Royals for three games at Angel Stadium this weekend. According to TiqIQ, each game will see an average ticket price below the Angels’ seasonal average of $61.98 on the secondary market. No game will top a $50 average, making this series as a whole 32% below the season average for LA Angels tickets.

 

The Royals have played mediocre baseball through the first 46 games, going 23-23 over the first two months of the season. The Angels are 26-20 in the same time frame. The two teams match up for the first time this season over the weekend.

 

5/23 - Danny Duffy vs C.J. Wilson | Avg. Price: $46 | Get-in Price: $13

 

The series kicks off tonight when lefties Danny Duffy and C.J. Wilson take the mound. Duffy is coming off a near-perfect outing for the Royals after retiring the first 20 batters in a May 17 start against the Orioles. Wilson is also hot, pitching his first complete game in three seasons for the Angels against the Rays last week. The average is $46, which is the most expensive game of this series, but still 25.7% below the season average.

 

5/24 - James Shields vs Matt Shoemaker | Avg. Price: $43 | Get-in Price: $6

Saturday afternoon’s game will feature Royals pitcher James Shields against the Angels’ Matt Shoemaker. Shields has been impressive, posting a 6-3 record and 2.67 ERA over 10 starts. Shoemaker has started just five games but has collected two wins and a 3.06 ERA. The $43 average price is 30.6% below the season average at Angel Stadium.

 

5/25 - Jason Vargas vs Garrett Richards | Avg. Price: $37 | Get-in Price: $4

The final game of the series will be played Sunday afternoon and will see the cheapest average secondary prices of the weekend. The average price for is currently $37, 40.3% below the season average, with a get-in price of just $4. Jason Vargas will pitch for the Royals against an improved Garrett Richards, who has gone 4-1 with a 2.90 ERA over nine starts this season.

 

The Royals went just 2-5 against the Angels in 2013, but won two out of three games in Anaheim. Duffy and Shields have been dominant as of late and will look to continue the Royals’ success in Anaheim as they get the nod during the first two games of the series this weekend.

 

This weekend’s series will be the first of two time the Royals appear on the Angels schedule. The second series will be played in late June at Kauffman Stadium in Kansas City.

While the Royals have played .500 baseball through the first quarter of the season, they’ll look to turn things around against the Angels this weekend. Head to Angel Stadium to see Mike Trout tee off against a Royals team hoping to keep their head above ground as the Angels take on the Royals all weekend long.

i thought the royals were supposed to be freakishly stocked with young talent.

are they ever going to put it together?

Their big time prospects just haven't done what they were predicted to do. 

 

Hosmer had a solid year last year but has been bad this year and was the year before. Moustakas just got sent down to AAA. Myers was part of their future and they foolishly traded him for 2 years of Shields. One guy who has performed is their catcher Sal Perez. 

 

That doesn't even cover all their pitching they were supposed to have. Duffy is showing good signs this year and Ventura is electric but those may be the only 2 guys. Aaron Crow is a reliever instead of good starter now. Mike Montgomery got traded in the Myers deal and isn't all that great. They traded Oddirizi in the Myers deal as well, who is going to be a nice back end starter. 

 

Basically, they've sold 2 pieces who could've helped in the long term and a good majority of their highly touted prospects haven't done much.

thanks for the writeup!

so rarely does talent on paper equate to production on the field.

hope they eventually figure it out - its a great fanbase out there.
