Did anyone get any seats not in the 400s? I doubt it, but just curious. Total ****show.
I clicked through the best available several times and didn't see anything that wasn't a 400 level in the corners.

I had tickets to all 4 games and they got released due to a shopping cart error. This is great.

I'm in 434. Could only get 2 tickets. Crazy. Might flip them for better seats. Anyone interested?

There is never anything but 400s and SRO for the CS and WS. Season ticket holders get their seats, partials and special groups (sponsors, etc) get first picks of what's left. That eats up 95% of the seats.

I grabbed 2 SROs for game 2 and game 7 (if necessary)

Did SRO for WS games 4 and 5 in 2017 and it was awesome. Got my place staked out. Even better- WS SRO tix were $150. Went w friends to game 4 so sold my extra for $800. Took my brother to game 5. That's 4 WS tix for $600 then sold one of those for $800. Got to see loss at game 4, best game ever at game 5, and made $200 off the deal.

Problem is that is all MLB money. Not Astros. The team doesnt get anything from postseason ticket sales.

And a huge chunk of that goes to the players' playoff shares.

Well

Cole won't be getting a playoff share ever again if he leaves for a team in the AL West

Right... Here is the breakdown from a fangraph's article:

Quote:


First things first. What type of postseason revenue must teams share with each other, the league and the players? Ticket revenue. Under MLB Rule 26, "paid attendance receipts" is defined as the "total sum of gross receipts from tickets sold" to each postseason game, minus any admission tax, sales tax or use tax. Game-day concessions, merchandise and other non-ticket revenue are not included.

MLB Rule 45 gives the Commissioner's Office 15% of the paid attendance receipts for all postseason games.
The remaining 85% is divided as follows:

  • Fifty percent of the paid attendance receipts from the Wild Card games is contributed to the Players Pool. (This provision was added in the new CBA.)
  • Sixty percent of the paid attendance receipts from the first three games of the Division Series is contributed to the Players Pool.
  • Sixty percent of the paid attendance receipts from the first four games of the Championship Series and the World Series is contributed to the Players Pool.
  • All paid attendance receipts not paid to the Commissioner's Office or contributed to the Players Pool is shared equally between the two teams in each Series or Wild Card game.

The Players Pool money is divided among players on the postseason teams. The more successful the team, the more money to that team's players. Here's how the funds are distributed, per the CBA:

  • World Series Winner: 36%
  • World Series Loser: 24%
  • Two Championship Series Losers: 24%
  • Four Division Series Losers: 13%
  • Wild Card Losers: 3%

I would be so happy if there was an AL West team in Las Vegas. Would go once a year, at least.

Does anyone have any extra to game 2? SRO? Anything?

Hinch obviously doesn't care about winning this game. If he did he would have moved Springer and Brantley down to 6/7 in the lineup. This is all on Cole tomorrow cause tonight will be a big L

AJ needs to play Tucker and Reddick concurrently. That guarantees a great game out of Reddick, at least. He's like a dog in heat as soon as they put ratatouille in the game.

it's getting hard to differentiate between satire and meltdown posts on this thread

also I was in the Dave Chappelle ticket waiting room with over 2,000 people ahead of me, so yeah, I'll just go to sleep at a regular time tonight.
