Ticketwatch 2006: Post Season

Anyone who's been cruising craigslist or hoping to see one of the dozens of scalpers working outside Stan's in the Bronx had better come up with a better plan because the Yankees are cracking down.

The Post reports that "More than 100 season-tickets holders suspected of reselling their regular-season seats have gotten letters denying them the right to buy playoff tickets and barring them from buying season tickets for next year, the team said yesterday."

And where are these tickets now going to go? Why, the Yankees, of course. The team is in the process of setting up a StubHub center much like what the Mets, Nets and countless other teams already have in place. No word yet on if this means that we fans will have a better chance of scoring seats in the upcoming playoffs. Z's already registered with the team for the chance to buy tix:

"Fans who register during the Registration Period are eligible for consideration for the opportunity to purchase up to two (2) postseason tickets to one (1) game of the 2006 American League Division Series or 2006 American League Championship Series that may be played at the Stadium. Fans who register during the Registration Period are also eligible for consideration for the opportunity to purchase up to two (2) tickets to one (1) game of the World Series which may be played at the Stadium.Fans who register will be randomly chosen for the opportunity to purchase applicable postseason tickets (subject to availability) for potential Yankees' postseason games at the Stadium."

Alas, I think the better route is to shake off the ego and be a total media whore to all my sales reps who somehow always come up with good seats in the post season: Spa night, my ass! Give me four hours in the chilly October air up in the Bronx.
