Just like hammonds. No patience.  :lmao:

I haven't budged yet. But I just hate these people buying those tickets since it's making the demand crazier the more eople buy expensive tickets. Is there a stub hub app?

...do we break the Nats Park attendance record (set at Game 3 on Wednesday) of 45,017 tonight? Or the all-time NL Nats record of 45,157 set at the 'Who's Your Daddy' Sunday finale against the Yankees in 2006?


Yep. 46K plus tonight. Called it after last night's game. I called the Wed. record about a week before that game.

I still can't get over the posters who thought some of these games would have trouble selling out. :shrug:

I am excited about what was an excercise in "Supply and Demand" theory a month ago has become reality. Yup, the games are sold out, yup, ticket prices are up and yes, I'm loving every second of it. Pay what you can to get into the games guys, who knows when you will have this chance again.... Just ask Cubs fans.

I'm going to have to get that on my phone so if I DO make it down to the park without any tickets, I will have that thing handy. Do I need to have a ticket right there or can there be a barcode on my phone or something... lol

It's possible seats will go down quickly on StubHub in the next 3 hours. Grandstand seats at Yankee Stadium tonight fell as low as $16.50 just before the 2 hour cut off.

Yea I saw that. I'll make sure to check back in a couple of hours.

Oh interesting. So if they aren't cheap there then there will definitely be a good amount of scalpers.

Also, I never used stub hub much. Why does it say there are tickets for 109$ then when you click on the game, the ticket jumps up to 120$?

Fees or the person changed their prices on you, which is odd.

The cheap seats sell quickly and you might get a notice that the ticket isn't available when you complete your transaction, so just make it quick!

Repeatedly adjusting prices a few hours before the sale end is very common.

Makes sense. I also think that StubHub automatically adjusts prices for sellers as well, dropping them over time (though they probably aren't doing it in this case, why would they)

lol people I'd possibly be going with are dropping like flies. I might just buy a ticket and stand by myself until afterwards (I know many people are going to be there but actually have seats). It would totally be worth it!

I just sold my SRO and picked up 2 in 222.  Paid a bit more for the comfort of seats and not having to get in early to claim a spot.

Just got an email from my sales rep.  She says she can get $100 Lincoln or Jefferson suites for a total of $275.  These are all inclusive tickets which included food and drink. If you want to buy, call her directly at 202-640-7661.  Her name is Mary Kate.

Standing room only is like $120 right now with fees, for $150 more you get a suite and free food and drinks....thought that might more sense for some folks.

Anyway, I'm off to the game!

Thanks Hondo, great info!  Also, she's not my normal rep, but I have worked with Mary Kate before, and she's great.  Good luck with tickets everybody!

Suite tickets are dropped to $275 on the official site too now.

SRO are at $106 which makes no sense to me, seeing as there are mid level tickets in the 130ish range.

I feel like I'm playing ticket chicken, trying to see who will swerve first...
