Aloha! The World Series started last night, Shane Victorino is analyzing it on Twitter… and now you can dump a few hundred bucks on Spring Training tickets!
The Phillies sent out their Spring Training email today and one reader cc’d us on his reply:
Dear Phillies Vacations Customer Service Team,
I find the timing of this e-mail to be quite poor. The fan base is still trying to cope with the tragic event that was the NLDS. Like many, I have not been able to watch any baseball since the best team in the history of the Phillies organization went cold in October. The Fall Classic started last night and a date which I anticipated for months meant nothing. The recovery process is a longer one this year and I am anxiously awaiting the end of the World Series to mark another step in the process. Then this e-mail comes along!
Not sure whose idea it was to start marketing Spring Training trips the evening after the start what should have been our World Series, but I think you could have waited a bit.
I will always remain a die hard, but for now I am still devastated!
I’m not going to kill the team for trying to sell their product, but, yeah… timing, guys. Timing.
