The Reds lead the NL Wild Card race and are just 3 1/2 games behind the first-place Cardinals in the NL Central Division. Far and away above any pre-season expectations of their position on August 3.
Which begs the question: Are there any teams in a comparable position that feel they need to sell 1/2 price tickets to encourage fans to attend games?
Anyway, here's the Reds' latest offer. Take it or leave it.
The Reds are offering tickets for half price in 10 seating locations for games Monday, Tuesday and Thursday against the Cardinals at Great American Ball Park. The offer doesn't include Dave Concepcion bobblehead night on Wednesday.
In addition, during that entire four-game series against St. Louis, fans can purchase hot dogs for just one dollar.
Half-price tickets for the Cardinals series can be purchased at Great American Ball Park ticket windows or online at www.reds.com.
Now, if they'd just add a fifth starter, trade to get Austin Kearns and Felipe Lopez back, put Edwin Encarnacion in the lineup everyday, dump Royce Clayton ... is there anything else?
