Just in time for the start of Rocket's trial for lying to Congress

Not that it would happen but if they both went down and ended up in the same jail they would have a great ball team.

I watched the Jays game on canadian tv and the sox looked good for a while but something is not right there, almost like the Villa

Reminiscent of Charlie Sheen's character in the film Major League

I took my 3 year old son to his first Yankee game at the stadium yesterday.  It ended up being rainy and about 40 degrees F.  (because of the weather we got free tickets to another game (which is customary when the Yankees play an official game in the rain).

But the Yankees won, so it was good.  He had a good time until about the 2nd pitch in the first inning when he realized that Mariano Rivera wasn't going to be in. 

He then asked me every 1.5 seconds when Mo was coming in...

...for 4 hours in the rain.


It was also probably the most costly game I have ever been too.

As for the Redsox (I haven't been on here in a while), they will be fine... unfortunately.

Found this online.  Take it with a grain of salt though since I pay $12.00 for Yankee tickets and have never really paid more (but I now do pay $35 to park...)

From CNBC for 2011:
The highest non-premium ticket prices are the Boston Red Sox ($53.38), the New York Yankees ($51.83), the Chicago Cubs ($46.90 and the Chicago White Sox ($40.67).

The lowest non-premium ticket prices are the Pittsburgh Pirates ($15.30), San Diego Padres ($15.45), Arizona Diamondbacks ($15.74) and the Los Angeles Angels ($17.13).

The highest raises on non-premium ticket prices as compared to last year are the San Francisco Giants (14.1%), Detroit Tigers (10.3%), Philadelphia Phillies (10%) and the Arizona Diamondbacks (10%).

The most expensive beers are sold by the Boston Red Sox (60.4 cents an oz.), New York Yankees (50 cents an ounce) and the St. Louis Cardinals (54.1 cents an oz.)

The cheapest beers are sold by the Arizona Diamondbacks (28.6 cents an oz.), Pittsburgh Pirates (31.2 cents an oz.), Texas Rangers (31.2 cents an oz.), Philadelphia Phillies (32.1 cents an oz.) and Los Angeles Angels (32.1 cents an oz.)

The most expensive hot dogs are sold by the New York Mets ($5.50), Toronto Blue Jays ($5.11).

The cheapest hot dogs are sold by the Cincinnati Reds ($1), Baltimore Orioles ($2).

The most expensive parking is the New York Yankees ($35), Boston Red Sox ($27), Chicago Cubs ($25) and the Chicago White Sox ($23).

The cheapest parking is the Tampa Bay Rays ($0), Washington Nationals ($5), Detroit Tigers ($5), Minnesota Twins ($6) and the Kansas City Royals ($6).

I tend to do the same at Baseball as I do at Villa, i smuggle in food and drink.

During my epic 30 ballparks in 32 days trip back in 2000, we rated the food quality & price at each of them. If anyone wants to sponsor me to update the research, please let me know

I know that he's been struggling but 2 earned runs over 7 innings against the Brewers seems OK. In fact, I think it qualifies as a "Quality Start".

One of the best things (well probably the only good thing) about being in the office by 06:15 these days is that I get to watch some of the West Coast games live.

This morning it was the Sox 11 inning victory over the "Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim in Orange County California". A preview of the one of the match-ups I'll see in Boston soon

Now, live from Boston Masserchewsex, its Ulysses Karl Redsox ............

This evening will be game number one out of eight of my annual pilgramage to Fenway Park as the Sox entertain Ichiro Suziki and the Seattle Mariners. However before that I'm going to hop on the "T" and go to Northeastern University's game against William & Mary (in keeping with today's Royal theme on H&V).
