Best strategy for buying Red Sox tickets mid-April

Wife, kid and I are going to Boston in mid-April for the Marathon, and we'd like to take in a Red Sox game since kid is a huge fan. We are not regular MLB ticket purchasers though. Should we buy tickets now at 2X list price from a broker, or wait until closer to game day and hope the price drops? Are weekdays less likely to sell out? (teams on the schedule are Rangers and Angels, and it's Marathon weekend).

Help me score tickets for the NCAA tourney

Here is the situation. I live near DC and would like to attend the Purdue - Baylor game, which is the 2nd game of session 1 on Thursday afternoon. Given that none of the 4 schools involved (Purdue - Baylor - Xavier - Georgia) are from the DC area, and none of them inspire particularly national followings, do you think I can score a good deal by waiting until after game 1 starts and working the ticket resellers loitering around the Verizon Center? I seem to recall watching plenty of first round games on TV where the arena was not even close to full because the teams were not local. I can buy on Ebay for close to face value, but if odds are good that I can save $100 on a pair of tickets by waiting until the last possible second, I'll take the risk. After all it's just a basketball game. Looking for input from anybody that might have attended early round games under similar circumstances in recent years.

stubhub.com - scam?

Has anyone used stubhub.com to buy tickets? I want to buy tickets for an MLB opening day game, though these are yet 'officially' on sale. Will I be screwed buying one from this site? I assume it's from someone selling their ticket? Though I don't see how they have said ticket to sell now as they are not yet available.

Palau Musica Tickets - Jose Carreras?

I would very much love to attend Friday's Christmas Concert at the Palau Musica in Barcelona with Jose Carreras (scroll down slightly to the 21st of December). Only problem is, it's been sold out for months. The box office, concierge, and Google haven't been much help, so it's time for Ask MiFi. I would appreciate any leads on ticket brokers/ticket exchange sites that might be of help. I only need one ticket.

Selling tickets

Posting for a friend: I have a ticket to [a one-day music festival] but I can't afford to go (can't afford the travel or hotel). How can I sell the ticket? The booking paper I have says it'll be delivered to me "no later than 48 hours before the performance" - surely too short a time for eBay selling. How do other people do this?
