Looks like Turner is going to get a shot at replacing Rendon in the 3 hole:

Can he remember who he is in the third spot?

I saw the Nats there a few years ago.     At that time, we printed the tickets online before we made the trip.   I'll have to see what they're up to now.     I don't think my sister will go to the stadium to pick up tickets for me.         :)      Of course, I may be able to get game day, walk up tickets based on the Pirates' draw at PNC.
Had a friend tell me Atlanta is all electronic now.  Not sure about Pittsburgh?

I saw a game in Pittsburg last year but I don't remember what their deal was. I know it wasn't an APP though. Of course the way things are that could have changed by now.

Digital tickets are kind of a wild west situation because there is no 100% dominant standard and rules vary wildly between teams, and even at the same team from season to season.

For example, Washington's XFL Team accepts only digital tickets for games at Audi Field, and you can only show them digital tickets in your Apple Wallet (on an iPhone), the XFL app (which like 5 people have), or whatever Android's equivalent of the Apple Wallet is. You cannot show a screenshot of the ticket, nor can you show them a PDF from your email app, even though there are other places (like an MLB game or an airport) where showing a screenshot or a PDF attachment is just fine.

I guess if I go to a XFL game I'll need to buy at the gate then.

I have a phone that can't do APPS.     I appreciate this post because I had been considering going to NY, Pittsburgh, etc. to catch a few games.     Guess I better figure out a Plan B.

team cheats and wins- tries to prove innocence by winning- I wonder if people will consider them vindicated or just assume they found a more clever way to cheat?

I don't think anyone ever said they couldn't win legitimately. Even if they were to win, what value is it given the taint already on the pieces of metal the commissioner essentially affirms just as readily?

Plus, they evidently  messed with the integrity of the game at Black Sox levels, so I don't think I'm alone in not planning to esteem what they would accomplish, especially in view of the damage done.

I am just not sure this particular change is all that necessary with the end of September call-ups. With rosters only expanded to 28, that's 12 fewer bench players and arms in the bullpen to play the game-slowing match-up tactics. It seems like the really egregious game-slowing mainly happened with the expanded rosters.
