Hasn't he publicly said he won't spend significantly over the luxury tax?
Win another WS and he may just decide having a dynasty over the next few years is worth the taxes

I looked there and on rateyourseats.com (where the 360 view is actually from row 3 in section 437) and the only obstruction I can see is the foul pole, which I can live with.

Anybody have any luck getting in on the regular people ticket sale for ALDS now?


I got in and got some in the way up for game 1. Kept replacing tickets till I got aisle seats... I consider that a win.

So who wants to get #gamedrunk with me before game 1?
Hey alright! I just got game 1 tickets as well. Up in 405, but whatever.


We're in 405 as well for Game 1. If you have an extra O2 tank you can spare, bring it.


Here's a pic from folks in your section trying to get a beer between innings.

What were prices like?

I passed this year because of last year's prices and availability. Not a fan of sitting way up there for the prices they're asking.

For those that normally don't sit up there dress accordingly...It's HOT up there.

Bregman's fWAR is up to 7.8. For the last month, I've been roughly thinking that if he can get it up to 8, he'll be "close enough" to Trout's 8.6 and get the nod.

There may be some bias for us. It's been on our minds, in our papers, on our broadcast. It's been just now hitting a few some of the National shows.

I really hope there is a 3 way tie for the AL WC... that would be completely nuts
How would they sort that out if it really happens?

Ok so here's how it would go

  • the teams would be splits into team A, B, and C
  • team A would play at home against team B
  • winner of team A/B would play at home against team C

there's some tiebreaker that allows for an order of picking what team you want to be, so basically you can choose to play only 1 game, but it'll be on the road. Or take the chance of 2 games but both at home

edit: dont read this, it's all wrong. And I'm never wrong so obviously somebody has hacked my account.

sure about that?


Three teams tie for two Wild Card spots
If the A's, Indians and Rays were all tied, the three teams would choose/receive A, B and C designations. Club A would host Club B, and the winner would advance to the Wild Card Game. Club C would then host the loser of the game between Club A and Club B to decide the other Wild Card team.
Again, the three designations are decided by head-to-head records. The A's went 9-4 against the Rays and Indians, the Rays went 9-5 against the A's and Indians, and the Indians went 2-11 against the A's and Rays. So the A's would have first pick of designation and the Rays second.
This would present a fun dilemma for the club with the first choice. Would the A's prefer two shots at advancement (one at home, and, if that doesn't go well, one on the road as Club A), despite the impact that might have on their pitching with yet another sudden-death game looming in the Wild Card Game proper? Or would they prefer to take their chances on a single home game (as Club C) for a chance to get to the Wild Card Game?

hmm after reading the rules on the mlb website it seems you're correct

I was going by what I had heard on the radio and read on reddit but it appears the scenario I was describing is for a 3 way tie breaker for the division, I wonder why that's spreading so much.

I believe you were correct. Not sure what Panama Red's source is. Nevermind reading y'all's posts got me crosseyed. Here it is from MLB.

Three-Club Tie for Two Wild Card Spots:

After Clubs have been assigned their A, B and C designations, Club A would host Club B. The winner of the game would be declared one Wild Card winner. Club C would then host the loser of the game between Club A and Club B to determine the second Wild Card Club.

If we end up getting the daytime game, ticket prices should drop.
