Spring training tickets question

Hello everyone — My friend and I are road-tripping down to Phoenix this spring (March 15-19) for our first-ever Spring Training, and I had a potentially important question about advance ticket purchases.

We're hoping to see four Cubs games that week and a few night games by other teams, as well. But our plans aren't entirely solid yet and my friend in particular is really leery of committing to advance ticket purchases this far out.

I've read elsewhere that Cubs games sell out relatively frequently, especially on weekends. The days we'll be there include a Monday game at Colorado, a Tuesday game at HoHoKam, a Thursday game at LAD and a Friday game at the White Sox, all in the day. How important can I tell my friend that it is to pre-buy?

For non-Cubs night games, is there any need to pre-buy? I've read that the Dodgers and Diamondbacks are the only other teams that regularly sell out, but I'm not sure how true that is — or if night games are a different animal because there's usually only a couple going on?

Finally, we've been debating the virtues of sitting in the seats, the bleachers or on the grass. Any suggestions? (And pursuant to the first question, do some of those areas sell out sooner than others?)

Thanks a lot in advance for everyone's help. Hopefully we'll run into some BCBers down there.
