Mark McGwire and Yasiel PuigWith the excitement building up for the Los Angeles Dodgers 2014 season, season ticket prices were temporarily suspended before sales resumed, but at a much higher price.

Some tickets rose up to 140% higher than previous ticket prices from last week. Rarely does a team suspend season ticket sales and even more rare is it for a team to raise prices before a season even begins. The Dodgers are expected to be title contenders this season and the anticipation for that to occur has caused ticket sales to skyrocket.

Dodgers’ hitting coach Mark McGwire took some time to speak about the team on MLB Network Radio. He spoke about Matt Kemp and Yasiel Puig, mentioning the fact that Puig made a mistake with his second arrest this off-season and that he loves the energy Puig brings to the offense. He also added that Kemp looks fantastic, especially with his swing that looks like the 2011 National League MVP runner-up.

The former Oakland Athletics and St. Louis Cardinal slugger also added that he loves new infielder Alex Guerrero’s swing and believes he’ll be a good ballplayer for the Dodgers.
