The Phillies don't think different
Actually, as it turns out, that error message is the modern equivalent of "your telephone is not compatible with the Bell System," or something like that. I thought the problem was that the Phillies' web site was too busy, but the problem seems to have been that their ticketing process was incompatible with Macintosh web browsers. Everything worked perfectly on my PC at work, so we now have 12th-row upper-deck seats to see the Phillies vs. Brewers at the new Citizens Bank Park.
Trying to buy Phillies tickets
Turns out the modern equivalent of a busy signal is the message "DTWP001E: Net.Data is unable to locate the macro file err_bad_user_init.d2w." (I got up ridiculously early this morning and have been looking at this, and related gibberish, for hours now.)

I guess it's going to happen
The first tickets have been purchased, bleacher seats for the Red Sox vs. Tigers at Fenway Park. Up next, Phillies tickets, which go on sale on Thursday the 19th. Those may end up being the only tickets we get in advance, although we're pretty sure we can use our connections to get free Cardinals and Pirates tickets.
