Pedro vs Clemens on June 28. ( I saw that matchup in person in game 3 of the 99 ALCS, pretty fun day)
How much you think the scalpers will be getting?

well you can get standing room or outfield seats for between 40 & 50 bucks a pop on stubhub... that seems to be the lowest price for now

When June approaches and the pitching rotations are set, If Pedro is set to pitch on any of those 3 dates, cost will go sky high on the secondary market.

I usually get a couple of sets of tix from vendors here at work, maybe I should push for a Mets game since everyone alse always wants Yank-me games.

Saw the Red Sox play the Mets at Fenway twice in 86. First was an exhibition game during the season. Can't remember what the reason for scheduling the game was, but it was a raucous crowd and ended up being a WS preview. Next was game 5 of the World Series...which selective memory tells me 1986 was a best of 5 World Series and since the Sox won game 5 behind Bruce Hurst, I shall now celebrate.

celebrate away... i shall too, being the 20th anniversary and all

i could very easily make it up to boston for the night (would have to be back home the next day, gotta check the amtrak schedules )... if anyone wanted to check out one of the games...


edt*-jetblue $129 from JFK to Boston roundtrip... into boston around 3ish, back home the next day by 7:30, plenty of time to get to work on time certainly do-able

I'd have to see about getting tix.
I gotta drive to L.I. on Friday the 30th, so theoretically you could take Friday off, we could hit Thursday's game and I could drive you back Friday (but you'd have to sit through a 5 hour car ride with my wife and 2 year old)...getting far too complicated at this point. Maybe TV is a good option.

taking off on that friday probably isn't gonna fly... who knows... we'll see. round trip plane tickets are actually cheeper than driving, so it's no big deal.

excerpt from article on ESPN.com talking about Prince Fielder (son of Big Daddy Cecil)

Until his freshman year in high school, Prince was partial to basketball, and Karl Malone in particular. But when he sent a batting practice homer into the Tiger Stadium upper deck at age 12, his future was all but sealed. How many Little Leaguers can write a "What I did on my summer vacation" theme based on hitting a ball 400 feet?
