****.  When Cleveland lost to send the series back to Boston I figured they'd be in trouble.

When they got their asses handed to them yesterday I knew they were done.  Double ****.  :(

Definitely shooting for the Rockies now that the Indians are out of it.  I'd root for anyone over Boston though (and yes, that includes the Yankees).

Yeah, I am going to try to get tickets for a game as well tomorrow. I'm not expecting much luck, but hey, you never know!  :D

Not going to happen.

You sure?

 :o

I've never been so happy being so wrong.  Those automatic outs I was talking about actually started hitting and showing up and the pitchers actually made it to at least the fifth inning the last few games.  Now that I think about it, it's not surprising.  The Sox have been up and down all season, so it just stands to reason that the trend would continue in the playoffs.

Good luck.  I can't even get tickets to a regular season game, so I know the WS is out of the question (unless I want to take out a second mortgage).  I'll be content to sit home, watch the games in HD and get blitzed.

Go Sox!!

I think it's easier to get an exclusive from GG or Sideshow than get these tickets!

Sure as hell seems like it so far... I've been trying for almost 2 and a half hours and haven't been able to get through yet...

Now there's a message saying that the site is down.  Supposedly no one has been able to get tickets from what I've heard.  I think there are also people starting to line up at Coors Field.

Over 8 million hits on the Rockies site in the first hour alone... :o

Four hours online now and still no luck. On the plus side the queue page did change for me, maybe the server is getting close to working.

That's what I heard as well. The news hasn't been able to confirm anyone who has actually been able to purchase them.

Still...that's kind of a good thing as most of the tickets are still available and perhaps we still have a good chance of snagging some.

Maybe I'll see you in the Rock Pile Ryan!   ;D

What game are you looking for? I'm going to try for game 4, in anticipation of another sweep (knock on wood). :)

I'm pretty sure I'll be Rock Pile unless I decide to pony up some big bucks for better seats, $130 for two Rock Pile seats is already pretty expensive though.

Hmm, looks like they just announced the tickets will go back up tomorrow at noon. I hope this works out this time around. :)

Serious question.  Why did the Rockies wait until after the ALCS to put tickets up for sale?  It's not like they didn't know when they were playing, just who they'd be playing.  I'd think they would want to limit the chances of the other team's fans trying to get tickets, especially if it's the Red Sox, a team who's fans are known to travel well.  So why wait a week?  Tickets should have been for sale the day after the Rockies clinched the League Championship.

If that is indeed the case maybe it is to try and help Rockies fans get tickets? I really think they should have had a local lottery here to let people in Colorado get first crack and then they could have still sold some online to anyone. By putting these up online only we are going to have to be dealing with scalpers that aren't even in CO buying this **** and immediately putting them on EvilBay. Not to mention we have to deal with all the frat-boy, bandwagon Boston fans. The Red Sox are easily my least favorite team in baseball (sorry Mikey ;) ).

EDIT: God damn this is such a cluster****. Supposedly tickets are selling but it going slow. I've been online for an hour now tryign to get tickets, no luck so far... :-\
