I missed this during the week, and didn’t catch in the papers or the blogs, but great job out of Crain’s with these nuggets:
We are told that:
More than half of the 42,000 seats will be $50 or less. That sounds good until you wonder about all the $49 tickets.
Loge seats that were $82 in 2008 are now $175. My calculator broke on that one, call Mushnick.
Seats behind home plate in the “Ebbets Club” will be $200.
Ebbets Club???!!!! For the millionth time Fred, YOU DON’T OWN THE DODGERS. I hate the Dodger obsession, it drives me bananas.
There will sometimes be $12 tickets, on “select dates.” From experience, “Select dates” means Wednesday in April against Washington.

Summery Saturday and I have nothing to write about so I’ll throw it out there.
The word from Boston (heard Sterling mention, then looked it up on Boston.com) is that The Sox have had it with Manny Ramirez.
The Mets kind of have nobody in the outfield.
Manny, while older, is going to the Hall of Fame.
Now adding Manny Ramirez to the Mets falls in line with everything I hate (Red Sox on the Mets, I’d rather lose with my own players than win with yours, plus he pushes executives to the ground), so I’m not saying I want Manny Ramirez, my question is – could the Mets somehow pry Manny from Boston?
I didn’t see much of the Met game, but Pelfrey still looking like an Ace. I didn’t see that coming.
Knuckleheads who booed Duaner in the 9th need to get their time machine out go back a month and a half ago and see how you feel. Jerry has a 2 game lead, don’t you dare boo this team right now.
I never touched upon OverReyes and his finger waving? Anyone want to guess what I’m going to say? Keep your hands down knucklehead. I hope one of the veterans verbally smacked him.
Nice trade by the Yankees tonight getting Nady and Marte without giving up the top prospects. They are doing a good job of “rebuilding” with a $200 million payroll while still competing.
Nice job out of young Joba tonight showing up at Fenway big time. How great is a 1-0 game between these two teams!
How often would a Subway Series be with both stadiums closing? How much do you think a ticket for Game 7 would go for?
I was out and came home with the Mets up 6-0 so I’ve been watching the 1-0 Boston-Yankee game….did I just hear a woman announce the batter?
And is she doing it in Spanish?
That’s interesting and I think a Shea first.
What am I missing? Is this because of Merengue Night?
Do only Spanish speaking people like Merengue? Do Spanish speaking people only like one type of music?
Are the Mets trying to throw me some new suggestions for the “Dopiest Moments In Shea Stadium History” contest? (hereby nominated)
Someone please explain this to me.
I just got an email saying:
Caller just said he was going to not renew his tix, but if favre comes, he will dip into his savings to cover his tix and psl’s…
So now fans are volunteering for PSLs?!
Jets fans, believe me, you might want to root for oh and 32 until the new stadium. Ask the Giants fans how long the Super Bowl high is lasting.
