Chicago Cubs Tickets Down As Jeff Samardzija Goes On The Trading Block
As of today we are one month into the 2014 Major League Baseball season the Chicago Cubs have a record of 8-17 and went the entire month of April without winning a single series. However there is one bright spot for the Cubs, that being starting pitcher Jeff Samardzija who has taken his game to the next level this season.
Samardzija, the former standout Notre Dame wide receiver, is currently pitching out of his mind to start the season with one of the lowest ERA’s in the entire major leagues at 1.98 and a WHIP of 1.24. However despite all this Samardzija has a record of 0-3 even though he has been pitching masterfully due to the Cubs lack of hitting and run supports in his starts this year.
A result of his great pitching Samardzija has been mentioned as one of the hottest trade commodities in baseball and with his current value so high one could surmise that there is a very good chance he will be traded to a contender at some point this season, whether that comes now or before the trade deadline that time will one day come.
At the start of the season the Chicago Cubs had an average ticket price of $100 which has since dropped down to a current average of $88.65 with their most expensive game of the season at Wrigley Field coming after the All-Star Break on July 26th against the St. Louis Cardinals going for $153.66 with a Get-in price of $34. On the other hand the Cubs least expensive game of the season comes in one of their final games of the regular season on September 17th when they host the Cincinnati Reds for the average of just $61.67 and a low Get-in of just $7. Regardless of the lack of Chicago Cubs wins so far this season they do still have some great games left on their schedule for which you can head over to ScoreBig.com for some fantastic deals on tickets the rest of the season.
