Ryan Franklin on the Cardinals and he getting booed at home . . .

"They must have short memories," said Franklin. "I think I've been decent for the four years I've been here and then ... to do that. ... But that's all right.

"I wouldn't do it. I'm a fan of the Oklahoma Sooners and whenever they have a bad game, I don't stand out there on the sidelines and tell them, 'You [stink].'''

Earlier, Franklin had said some other things he later would regret, including a jab at the St. Louis fans.

"You don't boo your own team," said Franklin. "I don't care who you are or what you say or just because you spent your money to come here to watch us play that somebody happens to make one bad pitch and give up a homer and you are going to start booing?

"They are supposed to be the best fans in baseball," Franklin had said. "Yeah, right."

Have I ever mentioned how ridiculous ticket prices are in St. Louis?  The cheapest face value ticket for Saturday is $51, and that's for the worst seats in the stadium.  That's just nuts.

That's not really that much more than I use to pay 10 years ago though...so at least its remained consistant. ;)

To be fair: the Cardinals use those tickets as give away's, cheap season seats, and specials.  For example: I will get several offers a year that I can go to a ballgame for $10 as part of a teacher appreciation.  Or my high school baseball team will be given 100 tickets to sell for $20 and if they do, they get to go on the field and play for an hour after the Cards' game.  And they get to keep the money. 

By cheap season tickets, I mean for around $1000 you can get those seats all season long.  At $50, that's a fourth of their value.  And if you have a special event and need tickets to sell at auction or give away, they are very generous, and it's usually these seats.

So the seats aren't spectacular, you're in the ballpark.

As much as I dislike the Cards, they do some smart things to endear their fans and supporters.
