Stubhub prices for Wednesday's game are going up.  Cheapest non-standing room tickets are now $120 and up.  Compare that to St. Louis, where you can find seats (not standing room, actual seats) for tomorrow's game starting at $41 and Game 2 on Monday starting at $25.

Just reflects the higher purchasing power in this area.

Look how cheap game 2 tickets are in St. Louis ($18):

http://www.stubhub.com/st-louis-cardinals-playoff-tickets/cardinals-vs-nationals-10-8-2012-4134438/

I wonder if the prices will drop that much right the day of our playoff game. The prices are high now but if the tickets don't get sold they'll drop in price in the same way.

However if the Nats go 2-0 at the Cards I bet you'd be hardpressed to find affordable tickets on stubhub.

Heard it noted on the radio that our win today means at least two home playoff games.  Either game 4 or a trip to the nlcs.

If you dig deeper, the $67 "ticket" for Wednesday's game is actually a parking pass.  SRO tickets start at $94 and actual seats start $115.

They should have sent an email out, but the Insider sale on Tuesday requires a generic password (likely the same one they always use for Insider presales).  For STHs, they sent out an email with unique, one-time use passwords.

How do you sign up for it?  I checked and couldn't find in my MLB account where the insider email list was?

I tried that link last week but I still don't see insiders when I go to "manage my subscriptions". Maybe it's just my account?  I see nationals auctions, nationals ticket alert, state of the nation, post game update, nationals show and some bi-monthly I can't read the text of. No insiders when I long in.

Well if you hang around here someone will post the email with the password and time. So if you don't get the email you'll still be able to participate in the sale.

Please use PM's for the pre-sale password.  Hate to have local Reds fans getting tickets because we made it public.

Did any season ticket holders here get an email with information about today's presale for STH?  I haven't received anything.  I just called my ticket rep about it and had to leave a message.  I hope they're working today.

Did any other Nats Insiders not get the password yet?  I'm waiting anxiously for the e-mail.
