I use Stub Hub all the time. Its great for the small time fan, even with the ridiculous fees.

You should make your feelings known to the Yankees. I just hope the Mets don't go the same direction, as I come in every summer, then use Stub Hub to get txxx at Citi.
I suspect that the Mets, and most other teams will soon follow the Yankees' example. When one owner finds a new way to make money the rest usually aren't far behind, fans be damned.

I don't think that's fair, considering that the Yankees have won 3 division titles and a World Series in Hal's 4 years at the helm. And I also think that you're somewhat romanticizing The Boss, who never hesitated to squeeze fans for every penny.
