The Los Angeles Dodgers are reportedly raising prices on season tickets in 2016. This won’t be particularly popular.

Dodgers fans are already on edge to a certain because of the Time Warner Cable issue. Add to that their rising prices and eliminating the $5 ticket plan on season packages and fans might grow increasingly restless.

Increases might go anywhere from 10 to to 25 percent depending on the section.

The news comes at a curious time, considering the Dodgers are without a manager and Zack Greinke having just opted out Wednesday morning. For those weighing the outcomes of those situations into whether or not they’ll either renew their passes, making such a decision with an increased investment could get tough.

On the Dodgers’ side of this, they’re coming off a season with a $300 million payroll with just a trip to the first round to show for it. Grading the roster by the amount of money invested into it is a flawed exercise, but from a purely business standpoint, somewhere along the line it makes sense to cut back.

An interesting question for fans to answer in all of this is: If the increased investment on your part leads to the signing of the free agent or re-signing of Greinke, would you opt for the passes despite the jump in cost? For many, especially the die-hards who can afford the games, I’d imagine the answer is pretty straightforward: I’ll fork up the cash so long as you promise to do the same.

First and foremost, I love everything Los Angeles. I was born and raised as such. There is video of me, hardly a year old, saying my version of "goooo Dodgers" as my parents cheered alongside me. I could not possibly be more proud to hold this position as we at DodgersNation look forward to enhancing the Dodgers fan experience in any way we possibly can.

    You said: Increases might go anywhere from 10 to to 25 percent depending on the section.
    My season ticket price jumped almost 50%.  No one seems to be reporting this. Just the remarks in the times from November. Additionally you would think the Dodgers would at least write an email to its subscribers informing them of the unfortunate increase and offering options. Like relocation since they seem to be targeting certain seat locations especially in a pay up or get out mentality.  The subscriber rep told me it’s fine with him if the Dodgers raise ticket prices.  Not exactly a trained customer service response.
