Prices for game 3(hm game 1) are already plummeting on stubhub.

1 pm start is a killer for lots of folks.

I wonder what SRO tickets will cost.  Not sure I want to plunk down $70 plus service charges for the cheapest seat in the house.  Guess I will try for game 1 and if I don't get anything, it's no big deal.

WTOP ran the password in an online story this morning. $&@!!!!  It's still there as I type this, at least when I view their mobile site it is.

It's going to be half Cardinals supporters  in the house tomorrow - those fans travel well.

ANYWAY...

Game 2 - 3,757 starting at $122 3,951 starting at $120
Game 3 - 3,836 starting at $136 3,980 starting at $134
Game 4 - 3,614 starting at $155 3,755 starting at $140

The market was overly inflated. But while ticket prices are dropping, actual sales are still high, hundreds of tickets were sold yesterday at above face value. Bottom line is if you have tickets listed, price them to sell now, take a modest profit rather than risk losing money.

So what? I'm completely missing the cause for outrage. Publishing the password helps Nats fans.

Do you get the point of a PRE-sale and password syatem?  To reward people that have had loayalty in the past?

Trust me, it's a minor issue.  The allotment for the insider sale won't meet demand and everyone that tries will feel like they deserve it.

That is true which is why I don't like adding more people to the list of those who know the password.

meh. prices will jump when it becomes more likely. don't forget $70 on stubhub really means $83.



How much are the fees the Nats tack on?  Fairly similiar if I remember correctly.

Convenience fee is $6 per seat (at least for the $35 seats for home game 1) plus a one time $4 processing fee.

"loayalty" "syatem"? The Capitalist gang bang sure did a number on you when you look to them to provide a sense of validation of your fandom. What's next stories of how much you have "invested" by purchasing tickets?

DO you disagree with season ticket holders getting a chance to buy extra tickets first?

I refuse to endorse mollycoddle fans who cannot commit to a full strip.

Some people are posting that they can't go to the game due to the time slot. It also looks like Thursday game is 1:00 also.

Could be, but I don't think they'll announce anything till tonight's results are in - both of tonight's fixtures are potential elimination matches.

Just got in line on two devices for the NLCS tickets. I'd suggest you start trying now!
