The key, apparently, is depth: "But there are so many prospects here with high floors, players who would be top-10 or top-five in other systems but are 11-20 here that they are well-positioned to compete even with modest major league payrolls during the next five to six years."

Help a Padres fan out--survey on attendance

7

This is my first fanshot here, though I've commented for several years. I'm taking a technical writing class (gotta build up job skills in this market), and the final assignment is to write up a proposal. I'm writing about ways in which the Padres can increase their attendance and get people to buy more food and merchandise. I have to conduct a survey as part of the assignment, and who better to ask for input than fellow Padres fans?

Padres implimenting "dynamic ticket pricing", also known as gouge fans on popular game days...

+

Looks like the Padres have decided to join one of the lame new trends in MLB ticket modeling by using the so called "dynamic pricing" scheme. Which for those that doesn't know means that the Pads will highly over inflate ticket prices on game days where desirable opponents or pitchers are in town like the Dodgers, Giants, Phillies, etc... and will, if they do it right, drop prices when no so popular teams like the Pirates and Nationals come to town.

TV deal info - nothing new

Beginning this season, the games are expected to air on a new channel, Fox Sports San Diego, though the agreement in principle between the club and the network has yet to be finalized, formalized or announced. Still, sources familiar with the plans expect the Padres’ April 5 opener against the Dodgers to be seen on the new network. Nothing new here, although this is the first article I've read that mentions the padres ownership stake.

Padres implementing dynamic ticket pricing

4

The Padres have become the latest Major League team to implement dynamic pricing for single-game ticket sales. By using advanced computer programming, dynamic pricing will give the team the ability to adjust ticket costs higher or lower based on market demand and such factors as pitching matchups, the team's performance, weather and potential milestones. Dynamic pricing is geared toward giving fans more day-to-day options in 2012. It also allows the Padres to accurately price tickets in a timely fashion.
