A Beautiful Night
For a Sellout

Fenway Park. Sold out again
(Yoon S. Byun / Globe Staff)

Just Ask the Red Sox

Globe: Fenway Sold Out, Plenty of Good Seats Available
So Why Do They Sell the Standing Room Seats in December Again?
Nah. The Sox Don't Profit from the 400 Percent Markups at Ace Ticket Either
Survey: 85 Percent of the Fans Aren't Buying What the Sox Are Selling
On WEEI: Sam Kennedy's Knee-Jerk Reaction and Talking Points:
1. The Red Sox Were Using This Fuzzy Math Before We Got Here
2. Everybody Else Cheats, Too

"We have a [sellout] definition that is tied to this metric which the team has used for a long, long time and again it's based upon the seating capacity at Fenway, and that goes back to if there are more standing room tickets sold, that's how you can exceed that seating capacity. It's a metric and a definition that's been used here for decades, and by other professional sports teams in town." -- Red Sox COO Sam Kennedy, dealing with the faux-sellout mess on WEEI's Mut and Merloni show
