Stephen Strasburg's Impending Return A Financial Boon For Nationals

Via the always insightful Mr. Irrelevant, it appears the September big league return of Washington Nationals' pitching phenom Stephen Strasburg will boost both the starting rotation of the Nats AND the coffers at Nats Park. The graphic after the jump, courtesy of Mr. Irrelevant's Jamie Mottram, using Nationals' home ticket prices from TiqIQ:

As the post illustrates, the Nationals are charging over 50% more for "Strasmas 2" tickets than for the four games surrounding the fireballing right hander's return. So I ask: smart business practice, or the selfish gouging of loyal fans? Discuss amongst yourself.
