Anyone buy anything in the pre-sale today?

I got 4 to Opening Night. Not sure what I'm gonna do with them yet.

Bought 3 to Opening Night and will sell our 2 to cover the costs. We have 3 guys that share 2 seats and all want to go to Opening Night.

I was just going through the schedule as I put our spreadsheet together to keep track of the tickets at work, and I noticed we have 8 total Bronze games, and 5 of them are against the Reds, which is kinda hilarious.

Confirmation that the Cubs are using dynamic pricing for single game sales to the general public came in this email today. I was wondering why the pre-pre-sale prices seemed a little off and was thinking it might be this. Only STH get the regular "face value" and we will only have that until April 4th.

Following an exciting week of presale and on-sale opportunities, we would like to provide you with an update on your ongoing 2016 ticket purchase opportunity.

As an exclusive Season Ticket Holder benefit, you have the ability to purchase additional tickets directly from me throughout the season. Please note your Season Ticket Holder pricing remains in effect until 5 p.m. CDT Monday, April 4. Tickets purchased after April 4 will be subject to dynamic pricing. Prices for tickets will vary based on current market demands. This means prices will generally increase as demand grows and supply decreases for games.

Season tickets have been received. Like the replica lineup cards they included.

I love the winning but a part of me misses the days of 2011-2014 where tickets were $10-$15 a piece by June

Trying to make plans now and not a ticket below $100

Same. Only thing better, IMO would have been 3 and 5 of the WS. Going to suck if they make it and I won't be at the first WS game. Though having 4 and 5 gives the only chances to see a home clinch.

Only 3 and 4? What if they accidentally lose a game and have to clinch in game 5?
