Hey does anybody know, if you K but make it to first on a wild pitch, how does that count against your OBP?

Scott's a really smart guy. He probably knew before the players did ;)

Of course you are right. But I'm only a Yankee fan. Still bitter. I'm only human.

I think Manny used. I think Ortiz used. Big time. I don't think Schilling used. I don't think Pedro used. Bellhorn, Millar, Varitek, Nomar, even Bill Simmons thinks they used. I don't think Wake used. If he did he should get his money back. It sucks. It sucked when we found out about all the others. It really sucks for some of the better players of our times who had to play against all the cheaters. How good would they have been. Some will only be remembered as mediocre. Many didn't get as much money as they could have because they were considered merely average. For those Sox fans who don't think half the players on the Sox were using, you've got your head up your a$$. It really sucks. For the honest players. For the fans. For the kids.

Sounds like simple economics. Price is too expensive don't go. Enough people don't go, prices will come down. Yes, I believe the fan experience is affected, even when watching it on TV, it is however something you can choose to deal with or not. I won't be going to any games, can't afford it. Will this cost the Yankees fans, especially new young fans? Probably. Eventually if it costs them enough fans the prices will come down. Write them a letter and complain. It might help. Make suggestions, such as after the 5th inning letting any fans at the stadium move down into the unoccupied seats if they want to. Maybe they'll do it maybe they won't. The Yankees aren't doing anything wrong or even unethical here. They have made a choice as to whom they wish to cater to, and they believe this will maximize their profits. That is the goal of a corporation. They provide us entertainment, and it is up to us how much we wish to pay and how we will enjoy their entertainment. Personally paying for YES on my cable is the way I choose to do it. Sure would be nice to go to the park once in a while and take the grandkids, but hey that's a LUXURY I can't afford right now, it is not a God given RIGHT to residents of the tri-state area. Sorry for the long post, there are plenty of unethical, unfair corporations out there. The Yankees have done nothing but made a business decision. Whether it works out for them in the long run is yet to be seen. That is the one thing we can say, that it may be shortsighted and it will cost them many fans, new and old, in the long term.
