Strasburg tickets are extremely affordable

Maybe it's the weather. Maybe it's because he's pitching in the afternoon. Maybe it's because it's a Wednesday. Maybe it's because people spent all their sports capital on the U.S. soccer team. Or maybe because he's pitching on a horribly hot Wednesday afternoon on the day people spent all their sports capital on the U.S. soccer team.

Whatever the reason, this is clearly the day to go see Stephen Strasburg on the cheap. As of this writing, StubHub is offering more than 400 tickets to Wednesday's matinee for 4 bucks or less. That includes 57 tickets for under $2. That means you can buy your heat exhaustion treatment and an extra shirt to replace the one you drenched in sweat and still come out ahead of where you should be. You can even vomit up a beer or two due to heat cramps and still buy replacements without crushing the wallet.

In other Strasburg financial news, the 2010 Bowman Stephen Strasburg Red autograph card auction has crossed the $100,000 barrier. For that amount, you could likely buy 50,000 seats to the next matinee against the Royals, assuming Strasburg isn't starting.

Don't forget to include the Kansas City Royals in your list of reasons why tickets might be available for this 4:35 start on a 94 degree, sunny, high-humidity day on which a lot of folks spent their mornings surreptitiously watching the World Cup.

Can someone explain why anyone would schedule a middle of the week game in the afternoon?

It was a "get away game" for the Royals. Meaning that the earlier start was scheduled to help them travel before their game today back in Kansas City.
