    Playoff Dates

    I'm pretty sure they haven't been released yet, and even once they are some will depend on results of the previous series' games, but does anyone have a rough idea for dates for the various playoff series - specifically Wild Card, NLDS, and NLCS? I believe the WS dates are already out there (with the NL team likely playing at home Sat-Mon 10/26-10/28).

    A summer watching a bad Reds' team, is still a pretty good summer.

    Re: Playoff Dates

    As a partial season ticket holder, I'll have a chance to purchase 1 ticket starting on Thursday at noon. The cheapest is the bleachers at $710/seat for all games with the view level next at $945/seat. So I took $1K out of savings just in case.

    This may be a dumb question but how do they know how much to charge if they don't know how many home games there will possible be? A division winner, potentially, could have more home games than the second wild card winner.

    The ticketing systems used now can easily automatically refund credit cards for games not played or make additional charges for "if necessary" games that are played.

    Not dumb at all...

    This is what I paid for 1 Bleacher seat:

    1 Wild Card Game
    3 Division Games
    4 NL Championship Games
    3 World Series Games

    11 games total = $710 + $25 (fees) = $735

    For 11 post season games that's not a bad deal. Less than $77 a game no matter where you are setting isn't that bad. I am assuming you get refunded for any games not played?

    I bit the bullet and purchased seats today as well. I just hope the Reds are there and it goes better than last year. Walking out of that stadium after game five made me nauseous.

    Yes, but you have to ask for the refund within 7 games after the last game played - otherwise it goes as credit towards next years season tickets.

    I agree. I'm cheap even when it comes to my beloved sport but I'd totally hit that.
    There is no such thing as a pitching prospect.

    Call me a Pollyanna - but our hopes were SO high last year especially after winning the the first two games in SF. If they get past the WC or better yet win the division to get into the playoffs, I'll be happy because they've accomplished a lot with so much going against them.

    Not a bad deal either way if you have season tickets. If I lived in Cincy I would jump on these playoff tickets.

    Walking out of game three was more nauseous for me...
