Rays playoff tickets on sale at 9 a.m. Saturday at

Tampa Bay Rays playoff tickets are slated to go on sale to the general public starting at 9 a.m. today at

But as of late Friday, tickets for the first two American League division series home games were gone save for some single and obstructed view seats, according to Rays spokesman Rick Vaughn.

Last week, the Rays set aside up to 2,500 tickets for fans willing to buy a $100 membership to the Playoff Access Club. Vaughn said the club was pleased with the early-bird opportunity, but he didn't release specific numbers.

The Rays also doled out some tickets to fans through a random drawing Friday. Other ticket-seekers, meanwhile, have already been able to secure the option of buying postseason tickets after agreeing to reserve season tickets for 2011.

This weekend, the ticket-buying action shifts online.

Assuming any tickets for the division series home games are left after this weekend, they'll be available through all ticket outlets beginning at 9 a.m. Monday. Two years ago, during the Rays' first playoff appearance, tickets were snapped up before the outlets opened up for general sale.

Going through the Rays, however, isn't the only game in town. Check out sites such as, and But consider that you might have to pay a premium.

    ST. PETERSBURG — As pleased as the Rays were to win consecutive series against the contending Red Sox, Indians and Yankees and to get briefly back over .500, there was a lot of talk in the clubhouse before Monday's game against the Angels that it was time to do better.

    OF/DH Corey Dickerson missed out on a good birthday gift when AL player of the week honors went instead to Detroit's J.D. Martinez. Dickerson hit .385 with five homers, nine RBIs and nine runs; Martinez went .389-4-9-7 and got the nod.

  3. Rays journal: Alex Cobb learning to work with what he has



    If this were 2012 or 2013, even 2014, RHP Alex Cobb would have problems. He would find himself working with only two of his three pitches, with the missing pitch being his trusty changeup.

    Alex Cobb, working mainly with his fastball and curveball, is 3-1 with a 2.78 ERA over his past five starts. The Rays right-hander tries to continue his strong stretch tonight against the Angels.
