Spring is Here… Opening Day 2014

2014 MLB Opening DayAlthough the first day of Spring was officially on March 20th, we think Spring really starts the same day as the Major League Baseball season- opening day.  With opening day happening tomorrow (Monday March 31st), we thought it would be fitting to make our predictions for the upcoming season.  As a Chicago Cubs fan, spring is the time for optimism.  A time where every team still has a chance to reach the post season no matter how big or how small the payroll.  While, over the last several years, parity has increased across the MLB landscape – most experts still pick the big spending teams like the New York Yankees or the Los Angeles Dodgers.  The bigger and more interesting question is who will become this year’s Pittsburgh Pirates?  With that in mind, here are my picks for the 2014 MLB Season.

National League

NL East – Washington Nationals:  The Nationals were a big disappointment last year but they will be ready to rebound.  Bryce Harper will be ready to compete for a MVP crown this year.

NL Central – St. Louis Cardinals:  Hard to pick against St. Louis here… They made it all the way to the World Series last season only to lose to the Braves.  This Cardinals team is loaded with young talent that should only be better this year.  As much as I hate to admit it, unless they implode, expect them to cruise to another NL Central Title.

NL West –  Los Angeles Dodgers:  Again not a surprising pick here but the L.A. Dodgers are absolutely loaded with talent.  The got off to a slow start last season only to come on strong at the end – that could happen again this year but I just can’t see the Giants or Diamondbacks running away with the division early.

NL Wildcard Teams: Atlanta Braves and Philadelphia Phillies

American League

AL East – Tampa Bay Rays:  While most are picking the Red Sox or Yankees here, I just can’t pick against a team with an abundance of young talent and the best manager in the game (Joe Maddon).  Watch out for Desmond Jennings and Chris Archer this year!

AL Central – Kansas City Royals: Ok, here is my out-on-a-limb pick.  Every year I think the KC Royals will be much better than they turn out to be.  Maybe it is my inner Cub fan coming out but I really think this will be the year the Royals put it all together.  Watch out for Yordano Ventura!

AL West – Oakland A’s:  On paper the A’s look like nothing all that special.  However, they never look all that special on paper but Billy Beane always seems to find a way to keep the Athletics competitive.  With not a whole lot of dominant teams in the AL West you have to go with the team that will likely be the most consistent.

AL Wildcard Teams:  Boston Red Sox and Texas Rangers

NYE and NFL on the Rise – Tickifieds Top 10

Green Bay Packers Tickets

The Green Bay Packers surge to #3 this week following their big win over the Chicago Bears. The NFC North Champs are once again headed to the playoffs.

Although we saw little movement atop this week’s Top 10 most searched for tickets at Tickifieds.com, several events and performers made their first appearance.  Making the largest jump this week is the Green Bay Packers.  Star quarterback Aaron Rodgers, Clay Matthews and the Packers are fresh off clinching the NFC North and are looking towards the playoffs yet again.  Another NFL team making waves are the Washington Redskins. The Skins are currently in a 3 way battle for control of the NFC East.  If the Redskins can hold off the Dallas Cowboys and NY Giants, they would make the playoff for the first time in 5 years!

Other events to note are 3 New Year’s eve comedy and concerts that came in at a tie for the #10 spot on this week’s list.  Once Christmas is officially over, expect New Year’s related events to surge.

1.  One Direction

One Direction is showing absolutely no signs of slowing down as they maintain a comfortable lead over the competition.  1D will be appearing on the XFactor finale tonight so we should see another spike in 1 Direction traffic as parents scamble for last minute Christmas gifts.  Don’t forget, Tickifieds will also be giving away tickets to see One Direction see be sure to register for the ticket giveaway.  For all the details check out:  http://blog.tickifieds.com/win-one-direction-tickets-from-tickifieds-com/

2. Taylor Swift

Taylor Swift continues to maintain her position just behind the champs One Direction.  Perhaps Swift is eyeing the top spot with the recent news she is dating 1D heart-throb Harry Styles.

3. Green Bay Packers

After a big win over the rival Chicago Bears, Green Bay Packer fans are hoarding tickets for the final game of the season (vs the Titans) as well as they playoffs.

4. Brrr! Music Festival

With a lineup that includes Moby, Miss Kittin, Magda, Deniz Koyu, Deniz Kurtel, Chus & Ceballos, Dubfire and Justin Martin , it’s no wonder there is heavy interest in the Brrr Music Fest.  The 2013 version of the festival will be held at Echo Beach in Toronto.

5.  Justin Bieber

Is Bieber Fever starting to cool off?  It sure seems that way as JB slips to #5 this week despite the fact that many tickets have yet to go on sale to the public.  Is the 18 year old starting to get washed up?

6.  BCS Championship

The 2013 BCS Championship game is still drawing considerable interest as fans are still searching for the best deals.  Demand should remain strong through the new year.

7.  Capital One Bowl

The 2013 Capital One Bowl continues to well represent college football.  Fans for both the Georgia Bulldogs and Nebraska Cornhuskers travel well so it should be no surprise that this is one of the more popular bowl games.

8.  Washington Redskins

Robert Griffin III has led the Washington Redskins to a first place tie in the NFC East and has fans excited for the first time in years.  However, RG3 and the Skins are going to make the playoff they will have to beat the Dallas Cowboys in the final game of the season on December 30th, 2012.  This will be a huge game for ticket buyers!

9.  St. Louis Cardinals

It’s a little early to start thinking about baseball but Cardinal fans are an odd bunch.  What else is there to do in St. Louis?  Interest is particularly high for the 2013 Cardinals Season Ticket Holder Reception.

10.  10th Annual Greatest Night of Comedy Tickets

Chicago will be hosting a huge comedy event on New Year’s eve that will feature DeRay Davis, Aries Spears, Lil Duval and Jay Pharoah (of SNL fame) live at Arie Crown Theater.  The 10th Annual Greatest Night of Comedy is looking like it will be one of the hottest events this NYE.

10.  Widespread Panic NYE

Panic-heads are amped to ring in the new year with their favorite band, Widespread Panic.  this jam band with a huge following will be playing NYE at the Time Warner Cable Arena in Charlotte, NC.

10.  Phish NYE

Phish, much like Widespread Panic, is a popular jam band picking up where the Grateful Dead left off.  Phish will be playing a series of shows at Madison Square Garden with the most popular being on New Year’s Eve.
