The Boston Red Sox made many offseason acquisitions that had some in the media projecting them to pull off another one of their worst-to-first seasons that have been commonplace in recent years. The biggest question mark was their pitching, and just under 30 games into the season, that question mark still remains.
Boston can mash with any team in the league, but that can only take them so far. In their last 10 games, the Red Sox have given up on average six runs per game, and have one of the highest team ERAs in all of baseball.
Currently, the Red Sox sit in fourth place in the AL East division and have won just three out of their last ten (as of 5/6). The friendly-confines of Fenway Park have not been kind to Boston, as they are surprisingly under .500 at home with a 7-8 home record.
Boston started off the month of May by getting swept by the division rival New York Yankees and are now looking to shake off that series and string together consecutive strong performances. With information provided by RazorGator.com, below are the most expensive Boston Red Sox tickets for the month of May, where the team looks to put their foot in the ground and turn things around.
Most Expensive: 5/24/2015 | Boston Red Sox vs. Los Angeles Angels | Fenway Park | Average Price: $136.40 | Get-in Price: $46
5/23/2015 | Boston Red Sox vs. Los Angeles Angels | Fenway Park | Average Price: $122.16 | Get-in Price: $32
The two most expensive tickets for the Red Sox in the month of May are two games in their series with the Los Angeles Angels. The Angels are struggling in the first leg of the season, but find themselves in second place in their division, as the entire AL West aside from the Houston Astros is underachieving. The Angels won a league-best 98 games last season but have not been able to replicate their strong pitching, something the Red Sox can certainly relate to right now. In any case, it’s a great chance for Boston fans to catch the 2014 AL MVP and perhaps baseball’s best player, Mike Trout.
5/16/2015 | Seattle Mariners vs. Boston Red Sox | Safeco Field | Average Price: $115.88 | Get-in Price: $14
The Red Sox will have their hands full when they play in Seattle and face one of the league’s best pitchers, Felix Hernandez. The Mariners’ ace is 5-0 with a 1.73 ERA, 0.84 WHIP, and 44 strikeouts, one of the highest totals in baseball so far. Tentatively, the perennial Cy Young contender is scheduled to pitch on May 16, so if that changes, so will the ticket prices for this particular contest.
5/30/2015 | Texas Rangers vs. Boston Red Sox | Globe Life Park | Average Price: $113.78 | Get-in Price: $13
Due in large part to untimely injuries, the Rangers are currently in last place of the AL West with a 10-16 record. Boston draws them in May for a series in Texas, where opposing teams love playing, as the Rangers are only 3-9 at Globe Life Park. This is one of Boston’s 17 road games during the month of May.
