Apparently I am an Insider, because I received the email! Is an insider just anyone who has bought tickets online?

Anyone can be an "Insider" by registering as such at the team website.

The tix are for "Tiebreaker, Wild Card and N.L. Division Series" only.

 :(

I thought they were also going to be selling NLCS and WS.


What's the rush to run up your credit card on games that might not happen?

I've also signed up for the Orioles postseason lottery, on the chance that my White Sox end up playing Baltimore in the ALDS. The AL East and AL Central champs will almost certainly play each other in the first round.

They wouldn't schedule Washington and Baltimore playoff games for the same day now, would they? Oh well, possibly having two teams in the playoffs is a good problem to have. Hopefully I will experience that problem before Tribe Time does.

I think there's no way that they would give even the slightest consideration to avoiding that.  Much too complex as it is.

My ex and I run up so much on our credit cards (*), that the money for a few tix would hardly matter at all.
Would never notice it.

I'm done buying postseason tickets for now. I have six strips for the entire run through the WS plus 4 tix to each of the NLDS games. And, yes, at about $8K I do notice them on my credit card. :roll:

No.  Wait.  Really?   I thought we were being built to be in the WS for the next ten years.   That's why St. Stephen was shut down.  Remember?    ;)

i joined the Hard Times Nats fan club during my last visit, today they forwarded me the email with the "INSIDER" code that I had already gotten.

They actually will not charge the WS amount until Oct. 10. If they are eliminated before then, they won't charge it.

Any charges I incur for games not played will be credited toward my account for next year.

If you buy the single game tickets, they say they will refund your card for any games not played.

People are already trying to get to the purchase site before 10:00am.

I see I'm not the only one in a virtual waiting room right now.

I hope to score tickets for the first two home playoff games (I couldn't stomach a Game 5). I'm guessing at least one of these is going to be a day game that I can't attend because of work, and I'm gambling on the fact that I will be able to sell them for at least face value.

Still waiting as well... I'm flying in from Texas, so I have more to worry about than just getting tickets for my Dad and I.

I just got in and bought tix to all three games. There were still seats in Upper Infield Gallery, which is what I went for.

So don't give up, but note there will NOT be a popup window like it says. In my case it just suddenly went to the screen where you type the password. I'm thankful for dual monitors since I shoved the "waiting room" window onto the other screen and answered e-mails in the meantime.

Good to hear it worked for somebody.

I am still in a waiting room. Thankfully my 10 AM meeting had a call-in number.

I'm not missing our first playoff game. One way or another, I'm finding a ticket. I've never missed a home opener... I've flown back from either AZ or Texas (depending on where I've lived at the time).

This year alone, I flew to the away opener in Wrigley and then home opener vs Cinci. I flew to LA from Texas on last second's notice to see Bryce Harper's first game. Drove to Houston during that four game sweep.

Come on magic window... stop refreshing and let true fans buy the tickets. Not the damn scalpers!

GOT 'EM!   YEA!!!

Correct.  I'm at work and can't spend all morning just staring at the waiting room window.   By chance I took a look and it was at the CAPTCHA screen!  I almost missed it.  Whew.

Seats were disappearing before my eyes. So I just grabbed upper deck.  I don't really care.  I just want to be there.


GO NATS!
