In order to lure back fans after a disastrous 93-loss season, the Red Sox announced they will be cutting prices on their April concessions.

On "SportsNet Central," Michael Felger and Gary Tanguay debate whether Sox ownership deserves credit for the move.

Felger: "I think it's the right thing to do. They deserve credit. Most people think there's something coming down on the backside of this, that there's an ulterior motive. So, even when the Red Sox do something right, their fans still don't trust them.

Tanguay: "Gimmicks don't work. People aren't going to stop calling 'Felger & Mazz' and stop calling for the Red Sox skipper's head just because they got a weenie for $2 less."

For the record, beer prices will be reduced from $7.50 or more to $5.00 for the Red Sox's 17 April home games. Also, they'll be buy-one-get-one-free offers on hot dogs and kids under 14 will eat free before the third inning.
