Wow, StubHub has a $137 service fee on 1 ticket priced at $550. That's just stupid!

I'm willing to pay $550 for 1 ticket, if I have to, but I'm not paying a $137 service fee.

Would you pay $700 with no service fee?
Not for 400 level seats. But that's beside the point. What added service are they offering for this ticket to justify a $137 service fee when I only get charged a $10 service fee for regular games?

I"m not *****ing about the ticket prices, it's the outrageous service fees that StubHub, Ticketmaster, etc.. charge.

I hear ya. I had trouble swallowing the fees to watch the ALDS and they weren't that high.

On top of all that, they are double-dipping. They take a cut from the seller too.
LOL check out sec 334 for game 2...two tickets, 2x $290 service fee!!!

damn, i jumped over there to snatch those 2 tickets up, when i couldn't find the $290 tickets I came back and saw you were talking about the service fee of $290.

Got me all randy for a minute.

Quite a bit of wind predicted today. Should be interesting to see how 50-60 mph gusts affect fly balls.

1100am window has SRO only for all games in groups of 2 tickets. Only found actual seats for games 2 and 4 using 1 ticket best available option. The game 4 is ADA restricted but what do they know.

Of course now I'm waiting for the system to actually log me into my ticket account and it keeps almost timing out. I have to cancel and replace a SRO ticket to start the 5 minute clock back over again.

Didn't someone say if the Nationals wrapped up early there was a chance the Saturday game would get moved back to prime time? (6 or 7pm)

I guess that's not happening because it already would have been announced

Pretty obvious that Houston didn't do anything after getting just 1 hit that happened to come from a rookie outfielder in the first 6 innings.

The narrative will now shift that it was against one of the UNWRITTEN rules.

I really want to take binoculars and a flashlight to one of the standing room outfield areas and randomly flash lights toward the field while the Astros are batting.

I like it!

I think a good sign for a game would be:

I stole this sign from the Yankees starting pitchers

Yankees mad. Yankees entitled to win. Yankees no like losing. Yankee media does whatever Yankees say. Yankees need excuses for losing. Yankees no lose unless other team cheat. Yankees investigate cheating. Yankees make big deal about other team cheating. Yankees no need investigation to prove cheating. Yankees losing mean other team cheat. Yankees tell media what to think.

I love how all of this nonsense has been reported about whistling, etc. Like the Astros figured out some mythical way to communicate that has never been done before.

Ever been to a high school game and wonder why the dugout sometimes say "let's go 5" vs "let's go Jack"????

Number = fastball
Name = breaker

Or any number of other combinations that can be used to pass on information. This whole conversation and silly and reeks of Yankee butt hurt.

Not to select, but to actually finish buying as it will not log into my account to let me complete the transaction. I have SRO for 2 games and an ADA ticket for 2 games. There will not be anything left at the 1pm time slot.

Got 1 SRO for game 1 but could never find a 2nd one. So if anyone has an extra SRO they are looking to get rid of for game 1 let me know.

Nice to know that there are MLB officials in the dugout that didn't catch any wrongdoing. Being shutout apparently wasn't enough evidence that we weren't stealing signs.

All of this because Paxton was terrible and because their pitcher who had only pitched in one regular season game and one postseason game got run up to 97 pitches in 4 innings.

What a bunch of babies.

Until he strikes out every AB as usual

Guy had 1 HR and you're ready to place all your chips in that basket

We should play the better pitcher matchup

Tucker is a good sinker hitter and got one of the few hits against Tanaka, I'd rather see him start

I'm not saying that based on the homerun ... I'm saying that based on his postseason experience and that he's a better fielder than Tucker. Especially given tucker hasn't done anything this postseason offensively
