Ticket presale Sat AM

Yeah I had lower boxes selected at first for Fridays game but somehow messed something up and lost them. Did the same with left field boxes. Then it told me there were no tickets for either of the first two games. Then I kept trying again and again until 1 and 2 were available again. Then I messed up and found tickets for the first game when I meant to do game 2. Then the thing wouldn't let me pick game 2 tickets because it thought I still had game 1 tickets. Finally got it fixed and purchased tickets in I think section 372. Been kind of spoiled the last few times I've gone to games, sitting in field boxes behind the dugout. So I'm not super stoked about this section...haha. kidding it'll be awesome either way.

If I remember correctly from 2012, there tends to be a bit of a mosh pit down in 66, 68 for the final few innings. Go join them.

Oh cool.

Just out of curiosity, for anyone, it says that section 372 has an obstructed view. Anyone have any experience with this? I'm guessing it's that you'll just lose sight of the left fielder at times...is this correct?

I'm pretty sure that is the foul pole obstructing the view.

Odd question that didn't really deserve its own thread:

ALDS tickets from this presale were delivered electronically. Either to be printed or used via app like Passbook.

If they make it to the WS, obviously a physical ticket is much more important as a memento. I'm assuming all WS tickets would be delivered via mail or will call.

yes that's putting many carts before the horse but I was curious.

After the last three games, I wouldn't be worrying about World Series tickets just yet. If the Orioles continue to play the field and fail to hit, they will be watching the ALCS.

I'm not worried about players like Casilla, Parades, Walker who are unlikely to make the playoff roster.

The atmosphere on Thurs will reinforce what the team is playing off. Not that they will need that.

    • Well, he can talk to Mandrews for some tips.
    • I just logged in and was thinking about Miller as a starter for next season, and whether he would make as much sense as Skubal does... and here you've starting a thread about the same thing.  LOL It's hard to say what it would take to get Miller, but having him an additional five seasons would be incredible.  I'd think the packages would be somewhat similar in value, but that's just a guess.
    • That’s actually really exciting cherry on top for this draft. I believe you can give 125K before it counts towards your pool.
    • Point taken, maybe on value w/r/t the draft. But Johnson isn’t in the same stratosphere as Holiday with what he has done so far in pro ball.
    • Most interesting player behind Honeycutt to me. The first 5 picks will be very interesting to see how much they are able to save. 
    • Just some observations and reflections on this year's draft and the strategy in general... In one thread I defended the emphasis on position players in high rounds, disparaging pitchers as "cannon fodder." Seeing all the pitchers taken in the lower rounds amplifies this take. To expand the analogy to a military "draft," to me this year's draft class especially looks like staffing the officers corps from the best recruits, the higher rounds. Then fill out the ranks of cannon fodder (perishable pitchers) in quantity from the lower rounds.  A post by Frobby in a thread on closers amplifies this point. How many top closers are effective for more than a few years? Same with top starting pitchers. Contrast the longer careers at the top of their game for position players. At the other end of the scale, look how many bullpens are revolving doors of low draft picks, waiver claims, reclamation projects. Sorry for not substantiating all this with researched stats: it's an impression, over many years.  Zoom in to what it's like to throw an unproven reliever out there. He might be lights out, for a few innings, a few outings or a season or two. Great! Rinse and repeat. Hello, Albert Suarez. Goodbye, Fuji. A hitter (and fielder) needs many more repetitions to get a good read on their ability (see: Jim Traber, Jackson Holliday).  So to me this year's draft is an optimum strategy overall (even tho they claim every pick is BPA). Take your few surer things first, the position guys to rely on. Then have lots of "maybe" arms in reserve, because you'll need them, to burn quantity and see what wants to stick when the time comes.
