    I’ll be requesting Opening night, one of the Red Sox games, and one of the 7/14-16 games (Cleveland), both TBD.

    I’d love Friday 6/2 (with 6/30 as a backup). Of course, Mrs. N would prefer I fight you for the Friday Indians game, but it seems like that’s a big focus for you.

    If it helps, you’re welcome to note I’ve never gotten these tix yet.

      Yeah – I’d give you the Clevelands in a heartbeat, but 7/14 is my father-in-law’s annual visit.

    • ptbnl Jan 25,2017 11:29 pm || Up

      Also, sorry you’re still gazing wistfully at the Mendoza Line on these; if I get 7/14 and the FiL doesn’t come for any reason, they’re on me.

        Hey, no problem. It’s not like I’ve been carpetbombing dates, so not surprising I’ve struck out.

    Only able to make a couple games this year. Can I request August 12 only this year?

  9. batgirl batgirl Feb 3,2017 8:38 am

    Of course down to the wire, I’ll put in for one more! Let’s try for Tuesday May 23. Then I’ll just pick from whatever is leftover. I know last year there were some dates that popped up which the seatholders didn’t want.

    • ptbnl Feb 3,2017 8:46 am || Up

      Thanks for posting a reminder to people that the first requests go in today!

  10. sslinger Feb 4,2017 10:37 am

    I’ll put in for 3 games now, thanks:

    Wed 4/19, Mon 5/8, Wed 8/9

    Sticking with division rivals.

    On another note – is there any interest in an Opening Night gathering?

    • FreeSeatUpgrade FreeSeatUpgrade Feb 4,2017 3:27 pm || Up

      I expect to be grilling, weather permitting, unless North Carolina’s in the finals that night in which case I’m staying home this time. Ruined two great events last year.

    First round responses in the table. Apart from FSU we did reasonably well, and nevermoor even broke his duck.

    Unannotated dates are still available, including the entire Yankees series and two Giants games.

        Baseball is like pizza. Good baseball is awesome. Bad baseball is still better than most alternatives.

        I think I went 0-3 (all with a lead or tie as late as the 8th inning) in the front row seats, and 4-0 when I sat elsewhere this year.
