    Re: Playoff Dates

    Question, and apologies if this has been covered elsewhere. How are tickets handled for a potential one-game playoff if it's in Cincinnati? Have these gone on sale to the general public (non-season-ticket holders) yet? If not, any idea when they will? I'm assuming it's some kind of lottery system, but I can't find anything on reds.com. Admittedly I did not look incredibly hard.

    edit: So looks like there was a lottery for the WC game yesterday. I should have considered travel plans earlier

    There is no such thing as a pitching prospect.

    Regular season record matters less than winning your division for playoff seeding, right?

    For instance, if the Reds win the WC, even if they finish with a better record than the Dodgers, if the Reds win the WC game and play LA, LA would have home field advantage (because they won their division, even if they had a worse record than the Reds) - is that correct?

    (Definitely confusing)

    In other words, wild card teams will open LDS and LCS on the road no matter what, right?
    Go BLUE!!!

    I think that is correct. the Wild Card is the fourth seed regardless of record. That's the way it was when there was only one WC team and I don't think that's changed. It was only weird last year because of scheduling issues.

    Division winner gets homefield over Wild Card regardless of record.

    My dad and I missed out on the lottery last year for the NLDS games, but we were able to purchase tickets for the NLCS and WS games in which my dad dropped $1000+ for 4 tickets to each game. He figured he could sell tickets not used and make back some money. Still stings though that we lost game 5.

    Anyways, we monitored StubHub and Craigslist for NLDS tickets and happened to get the Game 5 tickets for pretty cheap. I think we were in the 400's section too for something like less than $20 a ticket. Of course the game was at 12 or 1 o'clock or something. I still remember the tension and my knees shaking when Bruce battled Romo for what seemed like forever.
