Same here, I'm supposed to be able to purchase at noon but haven't seen anything today.

Edit: Nevermind, I got it just now after I hit post.

I'm less worried about the pitching today, but I hope that bats come out on fire and stay that way.

would be really freakin nice to go full Astros on them and score about 8 runs in five innings and let Verlander out of there after 65 pitches

Only uppers at 10am. Wasn't the corners, closer to home plate. But a little disappointed in the inventory.

so I won the lottery for tickets but I can possibly only make one game? Going out of town this coming week.....question is how are the tickets sent? In email. If I buy them and end up not being able to use them I am curious how easy it will be to give them to friends?

Check your junk folder. My selection email and code was filtered as spam.

Alright, may need to buy some rum on the way home and pour some out for Jobu to wake up bats.

I'd suggest you all do the same. That is, if you're dedicated.

Quote:

It is absolutely the right decision from Hinch, even if Verlander has never pitched on short rest in the postseason after a full start. I can remember all the hand-wringing about Josh Beckett pitching on limited rest for the Marlins in Game 3 of the 2003 World Series against the Yankees, in the old Yankee Stadium. Beckett was a kid, just 23 at the time. He went out and pitched one of the most dominant October games I have ever seen anybody pitch in the Bronx. The Yankees were helpless that night. Derek Jeter swung and missed at a Beckett fastball in the ninth inning that Jeter still hasn't seen. Beckett had the arm. Verlander has the arm. You don't need full rest when you have the arm, not this time of year.

Hinch had the best team all season. Presumably, he still thinks he has the best team. He also has the best pitcher of his time, and one of the best of all time. Hinch will give Verlander the ball on Tuesday in the first game their team has really needed all year. You worry about the ALCS when you get there. You do everything you can to stay away from Game 5. You better believe you give the ball to Verlander. He can rest on Wednesday.

The ONLY thing about comparing JV and Beckett is Beckett was 23 years old at the time. The body recovers faster at that age.

I think JV's competitiveness is so great that it doesn't worry me much, but it's a factor none-the-less. As someone said, it would be nice for the offense to put up runs early and often to give us the opportunity to not have JV throw 100+ pitches.

this.


you have the two best pitchers in MLB on your team. You don't leave one of them on the bench to rot when you need them. You make the Rays beat your best.

Didn't get selected... but I'd like to go to either the 19th or 20th. Looks like they release them to everyone at 1. Doubt they'll be any around by then. Anyone buying for Saturday and/or Sunday and have extras let me know.

Keep checking in the coming days. They hold some back. Not sure why because they aren't particularly good seats, but if you're just looking to get in the building keep checking the website from time to time. That's what I did in 2017 and got tickets for Game 6 of the ALCS.

So does being chosen for this crappy lottery spot ruin any chance of being selected for WS tickets?

Things I'm looking forward to:

1) Getting ALCS tickets in a couple of minutes
2) Beating the hell outta the rays tonight
3) Seeing Strasburg shut down the Dodgers tomorrow
