The Cincinnati Reds have endured a rough 2015 season that has them looking up at every other team in the NL Central, being in the division cellar as the season enters its final month. Todd Frazier has struggled ever since the Home Run Derby, while the Reds took a step back in the pitching department after unloading both Johnny Cueto and Mike Leake in trades.
While things have been on a downward trend, Cincinnati still boasts a ton of offensive talent, and theyÃ¢â‚¬â„¢re getting a good look at their promising future in the starting rotation, with impressive pitching exhibited by youngsters Raisel Iglesias and Anthony DeSclafani. The losses are mounting, but the Reds can still avoid the bottom of the NL Central with a strong run in September. The best part? Along the way, Cincy fans get rewarded for sticking it out through the tough times, as ticket prices at GABP are falling.
A significantly low average like that is sure to give way to some insane value. To see just how much value fans are in for, letÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s break down the cheapest and most expensive Cincinnati Reds tickets for September:
Most Expensive – 9/12/2015 VS. St. Louis Cardinals at Great American Ball Park | Avg: $71.98 | Get-in: $17
This being the RedsÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ most expensive game down the stretch should come as no surprise, as the Cardinals are the best team in the Major Leagues, and have held that title for months now. By comparison, the $71.98 price-tag is actually right around the average ticket price for Cardinals tickets, making this a solid bargain all around. Reds fans may not see a win in this affair, however, as the Cardinals are 8-4 this year against their division rivals, although in general, St. Louis is far more vulnerable on the road than at home. Even if they canÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t pull away with a victory, itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s still certainly worth it to check out this meeting in mid-September, especially since the get-in price is only $17.
Cheapest – 9/8/2015 VS. Pittsburgh Pirates at Great American Ball Park | Avg: $22 | Get-in: $3
The Reds welcome the Pirates into town for another division rivalry clash fans will eat up. This is a tremendous value buy every way you look at it, and that sentiment is further solidified when you note that an early-October date with the Pirates at PNC Park is roughly $90 more on average. Additionally, the Reds are remarkably 9-4 opposing Pittsburgh in 2015, adding extra incentive to get to the game. The Reds could be a critical playoff spoiler to deal with for the Pirates, who will have to overcome them twice in the final month-and-change in two different series matchups.
