If this series comes down to a game 5, any chance Washington is just like fuck it and pitches Strasburg?

It's the playoffs. Sell that shit out.

What determines "sold out"? Because there are 43,975 seats in Busch Stadium, and the attendance figure for today was 45,840. I don't think they stop selling standing-room tickets, since last year's Game 7 set the record with 47,399.

Since he's not on the roster, that would be against the MLB rules.

Well that's good that they sold all their seats, but honestly that should have happened the first day they went on sale, or at least when they clinched.

Again, Monday afternoon at 3:30, haha. Most people are at work, and the stadium's pretty far from most of the metro area.

Agreed, but I feel like the media would have gone NUTS if he were on the roster. I think they're tired of hearing about it.

Again, playoffs. Plus it's a holiday so more people are off than normal.

Yeah, man, not selling out a stadium of 47,000 BEFORE the game on a Monday afternoon during the first round of the playoffs against a team that's never made the playoffs before in a notoriously spread-out metropolitan area with no reliable public transportation to speak of... what a bunch of chumps.

Seriously, though, I don't know how many people you know that can afford baseball tickets and be at a ballpark at 3:30 on a Monday afternoon on fairly short notice, but people tend to either a) have jobs or b) not have jobs, and thus not be able to afford to go to a baseball game at 3:30 on a Monday.
Thanks for biting, guys.
