3. Chicago CubsAverage ticket price: $44.55 Change from 2012: -3.8% You're just paying to maintain the ivy at this point. That $44.55 is for antique maintenance and little more as General Manager Theo Epstein continues to stare up from the bottom of the NL Central and wonder how the other teams do it. It doesn't help that the only team worse than the Cubs in the National League last year -- the Astros -- fled for the AL. While nearly 4% price cut is a nod to fans who know all isn't well, a few wins wouldn't hurt, either.
