In The Midst of Positive Feelings, The Cubs Still Manage To Frustrate

So I received an e-mail informing me that I was not fortunate enough to be selected to purchase tickets through the Cubs.  Balls.

However--even though playoff tickets have not been put up for sale yet--the same said e-mail informed me that I can purchase tickets on StubHub.  For just $400 a ticket, I can sit in the right field Bleachers!

You know, I'm all for the free market.  I think the lottery system is probably fair.  But the double-shot of finding out I will not be able to buy tickets when they go on sale, but can buy them for, I'm guessing, 7 times the face value...well, it's enough to put me in a pretty bad mood.

Did anyone get *good* news through their e-mail?
