“I have 4 lower-level seats, and they are offering me additional seats near my existing ones, not the standard buy additional upper level offer,” one of my friends noted. “I am a little surprised that they would offer me additional lowers and not upgrade those from the upper level.”

Well, whatever lowers the team had in late May are apparently gone — because the team sent out a notice to wait-list members Thursday morning, offering the chance to buy standing-room or obstructed-view seats. General-admission season tickets, the notice said, were now sold out.
