Yankees Cancel Stub Hub

Although the Yankees cannot ban ticket buyers outright from using StubHub to resell tickets, they can make it far less convenient.
With the StubHub link removed from, buyers will no longer be able to print StubHub Yankees tickets from home. The seller will have to send the tickets or give them to the buyer in person, said one source.
A source close to the situation believes the Yankees might lift attendance by 5,000 a game by dumping StubHub. If the average fan pays $53 a ticket, that would amount to $21.5 million for the season.
Let me get this straight. The Yankees are stopping the resale of tickets through Stub Hub.
Tickets that the Yankees have already collected full price on.

The thinking is if you stop people from buying discount tickets, tickets the Yankees have already collected on, that they will buy tickets at full price????

I'll save my comments, as this incredibly greedy policy speaks for itself. I guess the Yankees don't mind a lot of empty seats.
You can't make this stuff up.
