BTW, the Athletics, Dodgers, Tigers, and the Yankees all give ticket purchasers the option of a refund or a credit toward 2007 season ticket plans.
I am under the impression that season ticket holders are offered discounted season ticket prices. I've gotten conflicting information between the various threads on the subject.
IF that is true, and the ST holders get a discount on the postseason tickets, I don't see how the Reds holding your money for a 2007 credit is "unprofessional". They are doing you a favor by offering tickets for sale, at a reduced cost, way before anyone else can purchase them. You'll have all the postseason tickets while others are scrambling trying to see if they can get any, and pay more to do it. In return for this favor, the Reds want you to use that unused money on future game purchases.
If you don't want to be locked in the answer is really quite simple. Wait till the tickets go on sale to the general public, pay more for them and hope you can get some of the games.
Then you woln't be locked into anything in 2007.
