October Ticket Trick

So I'm pretty good at getting tickets to the Red Sox (gotten yankee games, Green Monster, Playoff...).  Here's a new trick that I found-Playoff ticket reservations.  MLB has a new gimmick where you can pay a little to "reserve" your playoff tickets-in other words, pay $10/$15/$20 for DS/CS/WS respectively to reserve the right to a guaranteed opportunity to purchase a ticket at face value for the postseason (maximum 2 tix per series per household).  The idea is that you pay a little, and if the Sox qualify, they'll contact you to purchase your tix.  This is a LOT cheaper than trying to negotiate stubhub or waiting hours on the phone to maybe get a face value SRO; the only catch is that you'll lose $10-$20 per ticket if they don't qualify (or you get a game that isn't played-eg. Game 7 in a series where only 6 are played).  Doesn't seem terrible to me.

I all ready got mine, for ALCS Home game 1-hopefully will be a weekend so we can make the trek up.

 

I'm just curious who the idiot was who purchased Pirates tickets!
