The Giants figure out economicsThe Giants may not understand the law of supply and demand when it comes to thirtysomething middle infielders, but they do get it when it comes to ticket pricing:
Next season, San Francisco Giants fans buying single-game tickets for an April game against Milwaukee might pay half as much as they would for a weekend game with the rival Los Angeles Dodgers later in the year.
Makes sense to me.

I know the Mariners do this to some degree: they bump the price up for an identified “Premium Game” and cut the price for an identified “Value Game”. It basically amounts to a tax on Red Sox/Yankee fans and a sort of Chinese Government packing-of-the-stands for Royals games. Both of which are just fine by me.
If the Giants can figure a way to make it even more dynamic I agree with Larry Baer that it could be the future of ticket pricing and be totally awesome. Especially if went the route of what I originally misread the article to say: that walk up prices could go for as low as a quarter. Now that would be change I can believe in.
