Let's hope Metro un-sucks soon.

Looks like the ASG is coming to town a year early...but then, I guess it was important to have Harper on the NL team as a Nat...

Alanis Morissette would say isn't it ironic that the Nats Park area will be built up just in time to have all of the windows busted out after we win the Series.

Two of the largest area surface lots are gone this year.

That parking lot is history. They are building a new bridge. Construction company moved in a couple of months ago.

Prices at the Capital Skyline are going to jump.

Will the development of the soccer stadium help any? There are lots out there I hesitated to use because it seemed a little dicey at night (with only the wife to protect me).

The crew on FM-106.7 last night were lamenting this considerably.

It is a little dicey.  If solo, I might do that and ride my bike over for free bike valet parking at the park.

Pretty sure it was the Chad Dukes show, late afternoon.

Found it. The station employees used to park at that surface lot and have been moved to another lot that is more than twice the price.

Maybe they can use Audi Field for Nats parking when the United aren't playing. Can they fit 200 cars on a soccer field?

Only Audis will be allowed.

I used to sometimes park by the LEnfant metro. I believe you had to feed the meter until 6:30 and then it was ok. Of course you have to contend with the metro crowds after but it was a better alternative for me than taking the metro to springfield  and then another 15 minute drive after that.

Does the ideas of driving to the end of the Green Line in PG County seem like a worthwhile alternative ?

Capitol Skyline is my go-to lot when I/we drive.

I usually park in the surface lot across from Potbelly, just east of the stadium.  Easy in/out and relatively inexpensive.

Skyline has a bar.    :)    The times I've been in there after a game, I've seen some real characters frequentin' the joint.

This might have already been discussed, but a third large surface lot will be gone this year. The Yards lot at Tingey and 3rd.

I just read on Reddit that seats in 235 are listed as Restricted View. I've sat there before and never noticed this warning. Has to be based on the foul pole. The seat prices are the same as the rest of the price section but this kills the resale value. Another March surprise from the Revenue Chief? Or just something I missed in previous years.

I checked for tickets and 107 has the same restricted view notice. I wonder if season plan holders were notified of the change before they renewed. Good luck putting these on StubHub with that big warning slapped on your listing.

222 is not listed as restricted view even though you can't see the area around the Nats bullpen.

I checked StubHub and the seats aren't listed as restricted view. Which sounds good, except that the buyer will see the notice on their PDF and they will be able to get their money back. Even if they attend the game.

Another lot bites the dust!

This is Michelle from SpotHero; I'm reaching out regarding your upcoming reservation at 135 N St SE (1200 1st St SE). We were just notified that this location will no longer be available for parking during the Nationals baseball season. As a result, we will need to cancel your reservation(s) at this lot. We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience or trouble this may cause!

Must be a conspiracy to get all Nats matchgoers onto Metro.

I could understand the logic of METRO if it wasn't such a "limited" option.
