CLEVELAND INDIANS
The Indians have a deal on their season tickets. They have $9 Season Tickets in the Bleachers or BUY ONE GET ONE FREE Season Tickets in both the Lower Bowl and Upper Deck (View Box) seating areas. Worth over $5,000 in value, you can get Two Full-Season Bleacher tickets for only $1,458. Two Infield Lower Box seats cost a total of $2,592; two View Box seats cost a total of $2,106.

All Full Season Ticket packages include:
• Seat(s) for all 81 home games
• FREE Terrace Club membership
• Complimentary Suite for one game
• Complimentary Club Seat for one game
• 67 Exchange Dates
• Access to Exclusive Season Ticket Holder Events
• Loaded merchandise or food value per ticket
(Excluding Bleachers and Upper Reserved)

I’m a huge Indians fan, but maybe they should also throw in some Pepto Bismol and aspirin. As the team has growing pains I know my brain will let my tummy know that I’m putting it through some unnecessary torture. I’m sure it will build character. My heart is made of leather now going through all these seasons supporting Cleveland teams. But ya know, just like a lot of Cleveland sports fans, they are my teams and I don’t jump to winning teams in other cities just because they win it all and mine don’t. LeBron supported the Cowboys and Yankees and that was just one of the signs he showed that his loyalty wasn’t with the city he grew up around. I actually like supporting an underdog. As Yoda would say, glutton for punishment I am.

KEN STEWARTS LODGE
I had to use my $40 Groupon for Ken Stewarts before it expired so we went this past weekend. Beautiful place with a wood cabin motiff that I like. Prices are real high. The cheapest bottle of wine was $36. The entrees were around $30. Then we got lucky.

We were already seated and eating our salads when the manager came over. He said he had to ask us something. He wanted to know if we could move to the booth next to us. He offered us drinks and dessert if we would. Apparently he forgot to save the exact table we were at for another couple that got engaged at that table and were there to celebrate their anniversary. Free drinks! Free dessert! At an expensive restaurant! No brainer for me. I was practically already seated at the other booth before we even said yes. We had to “upgrade” our drinks of course. And just before the manager asked us I was crabbing about not making it there in time for the happy hour deals.

LEWIS TURNING POINT
When surplus labor dries up and hikes in wages, prices and inflation ensue it’s called the Lewis Turning Point, named after a Nobel prize-winning economist. China is close to hitting that “point”. Wages are increasing while the labor supply dwindles. Wouldn’t it be nice to see some manufacturing come back to the U.S. when that happens! We need better paying jobs here that manufacturing offered. Many of the newest jobs are in lower-wage industries like retail and food preparation which accounted for 49% of new jobs gained over the last year even though they were 23% of the jobs lost during the recession. Higher-wage industries, by contrast, accounted for 40% of the jobs lost, but just 14% of the jobs gained.

Another concern is that a recent Wall Street Journal analysis found that even though productivity rose 5.2% from mid 2009 to the end of 2010, wages increased by just 0.3%. This time around, far more of the gains went to shareholders, in the form of profits, which are at record levels. The economy is getting better so hopefully everyone will share in the rewards this time around.

TIME WARNER CABLE
Time Warner came out with a new trial called “TV Essentials” that offers a package of cable channels for $29.99 per month available in northeast Ohio. It’s available in New York for $39.99 per month, After 12 months the price will jump to $49.99. It’ll be available in other markets eventually. The networks being offered are: A&E, AMC, Animal Planet, BET, Biography, Boomerang, Bravo, CNN, Cartoon, Centric, Cooking Channel, Discovery, Disney, ESPNews, FX, FitTV, G4, GAC, GSN, Gospel Music, HGTV, HLN, HSN, Hallmark, History, Jewelry TV, Lifetime, MTV, Military Channel, Nickelodeon, Nick Jr, QVC, Shop NBC, TBS, TV Guide, TV One, Teen Nick, USA and, VH1.

Time Warner lost 155,000 customers in the third quarter last year, so they need to stem the losses by offering better deals. The pricing is inbetween their Broadcast Basic package, which is around $15, and its Expanded Basic Package, which costs around $60.

These channels aren’t part of the package: CNBC, Comedy Central, E!, ESPN, ESPN2, Food Network, MSNBC, MSG, SNY, SportsTime Ohio, SyFy, TLC, TNT, YES Network, and the Weather Channel. ESPN adds around $4 to cable costs so that is why it isn’t being included. By comparison, Lifetime, which will be included in the cheaper package, costs 28 cents a month per subscriber. Then again I think they can take a good handful of the channels offered off the package since they will only grow dust on my remote. I would love to see an a-lacarte offering. Pay for what you watch!
