The Rangers would definitely be using them for the lower bowl where many tickets are grossly overpriced, but it wouldn't make too much sense for the cheaper price points. They are exactly like priceline, and teams like the Yankees & Mets have dumped whole sections into it in the past. One guy I know bought Mets tickets and it turns out he couldn't go so he sold them on stubhub (which is integrated with MLB so the teams see all your activity). The next day he got an angry call from his Mets rep telling him he shouldn't be reselling tickets from scorebig, lol (umm WTF!!). Basically teams use it as a way to clear glut without publicly marking down their product. They get tickets from brokers too and probably even individual people.

Teams also use Goldstar and lately even Groupon (desperation)
