The roller coaster that is the 2012 Pittsburgh Pirates season went completely off the rails this weekend when the team sealed its fate for a 20th consecutive losing season when they lost to the Cincinnati Reds 4-3 on Sunday.
So what if the team blew a division lead. So what if they were 16 games over .500 at one point in the season. So what if Clint Barmes and his .226 batting average is coming back next season for the second year of his $10.5 million contract.
There are still three more games to be played and thanks to the laws of supply and demand you can see those last three games at a huge discount. Tickets this afternoon on Stub Hub, a ticket re-sale sight, were as low as 48 cents for the Pirates season finale Wednesday afternoon against the Atlanta Braves at PNC Park. If you're a baseball fan, it will be your last chance to see Atlanta Legend Chipper Jones live and in person before he retires at the season's end.
If you think 48 cents is still too much to pay for the Pirates, you can go out and see the team tonight because tickets for that game are a real steal at 15 cents.
