I always loved Ken Griffey Jr's baseball game, that was sick.

It still was no where near capacity. they listed attendance as 47,574 or something like that. A nice amount of those were still on stubhub that day. could have gotten in for under 20 bucks in you lived in the City and checked stubhub 3 hours before the game lol

Best part of those was because it wasn't licensed by the PA it used fake names and you would have to match them up with the real players. Often they were puns of real players name

Pretty sure that was the case for Barry Bonds, if I remember correctly. I just remember that game being ridiculously easy to hit homers.

Probably my favourite baseball game. Griffey was so overpowered.

I agree about the 4 train, it's always that way and I don't know why that is...it's much easier to get on the 7 train to go to Citi and doesn't get anywhere near as crowded (and I'm talking about games in '06 and a playoff game, which Shea was packed for).

Taking the D train is even worse. the R68 models (Which is what the D train's model is) were built narrowly, unlike the R32 and R40S/M and 42. It gets like the amazon jungle temperatures in there..any way of getting there stinks.

Living in NYC the subway is the best way but not the most pleasant way. Especially trying to pregame on it.

This.

Fenway sucks. I have to hear people out here rave about its "charm" all the time.

MVP 2005 was amazing. The fielding was so good.

D or B on the way back can get bad but on the way there I've had no issues. I suppose it could get bad during rush hour on weeknight games.

On the other hand, I absolutely despise the 7 train. Easily my most hated train in the city.

The trains start out empty pretty much though, so even big lines can dissapear pretty quick. And trains come every five minutes, it really isn't all that bad. The worst part of it actually is after you get off the train, having to stand around for like ten minutes or more waiting for a 1/2/3 to come and take you the one lousy remaining stop to Penn Station.

I'd never want to drive there, at least not when I'm going myself. I tried that once and took a wrong turn on the way to the city and never found it (of course this was pre-GPS days but still, I hate big city driving)

That's the other reason I hate driving into the city.

Polo Grounds
Ya, but that stadium wasn't built for baseball, it was re-purposed, and that's clear from the name itself: "Polo Grounds". Fenway was built for baseball and it's still absurdly dimensioned.

And the traffic is terrible. I avoid the city whenever possible, even if the bypass route is slightly longer.

Its like less then 40 bucks for 1 car and when you usually go with 4-5 people, its a much better alternative. And parking at Citi is 10 bucks

and people wonder why this ******* sucks in the post season to pull this **** off in the regular season would have been ridiculous, but the playoffs? are you kidding? if this doesn't describe a-rod to a T, I'm not sure what does

Get the **** out of New York

Quote:
After being replaced in the bottom of the eighth inning in Game 1 of the American League Championship Series, the highest-paid Yankee openly flirted with a pair of pretty women two rows behind the dugout — even sending them a ball bearing a note asking for their phone numbers, a witness told The Post.

“I watched him flirt with two admittedly very cute young women nearby,’’ the witness said.

Instead of rooting on his teammates as they struggled to stay alive during the tense game at Yankee Stadium, A-Rod, 37, had a ball boy toss the young women a baseball inscribed with a message asking for their numbers

Like I said a few pages back. You don't get paid extra in the playoffs. A-Rod is perfectly content with his one World Series ring and collecting 30 million a year for the rest of his career.

That is what I was afraid of in 2009, was he going to love how he performed and love the whole experience that he would strive to do do it again and not be ok with failing, or revert back to his old ways and use his usual 'oh well' approach

Also in other MLB news, Jason Giambi is being interviewed for the Rockies manager job

Don't really care ball players do that all the time. Know of several first hand accounts.

Why is Arod continually getting lambasted when players like Cano and Granderson have been just as bad? They're also not the ones coming off an injury that severely hampers hitting ability.

Hey, I'd rather A-rod be trying to get some as opposed to making plans with Cabrera after the game a la Cano.

Because Cano and Granderson's salaries combined don't equal A-Rod's. It's like Kovalchuk catching blame for the Devils' shortcomings. People instinctively point their finger at the guy who gets paid.
