"Palm Of Parks"

Had Sox-Yanks on the FAN this afternoon in the car. Sterling and Suzyn are in classic pinstripe-colored glasses mode already. Sterling gave Jeter credit for a "good inside out swing" on a groundout, a ball Suzyn later noted was hit off the end of the bat. How good could this epic swing have been? Then they talked about how great the lineup will be with Gardner batting 8th. All we've been hearing is how great the top of their order will be with Gardner (who suddenly becomes good because Ellsbury's on the team?) and Ellsbury. Then they go ahead and announce Gardner will just drop to the bottom, and Sterling and Suzy go into full Knoblauch "it's like a second leadoff man" mode.

The best part was when Sterling couldn't think of the name "City of Palms Park." (Which he thought was still our spring training park.) He called it "Palm of Parks." Suzyn was telling him how the Sox are in JetBlue Park now, but then she too said "Palm of Parks," and then later said "Palm of Parks, or whatever it was called." Why would it be "Parks," plural? And how can you have a palm of something? At least just go with Palm Park if you know you don't know the name, at least that would be a plausible name for a baseball stadium!

Anyway, they kicked our butts today. Just how we like it when the games don't count for shit.

The Green Monster "dynamic" pricing was released today. It stinks that the cheapest SRO is $45. I miss the $30 days. But hey, maybe they'll dynamically drop to below 30! The highest priced tix are $700 for OD and $600 for Yanks. But again, we'll see if those change. Lots of other teams do this dynamic thing (look at the freakin' Cardinals, they have $10 seats that go for like $170 for Opening Day--I am hoping this tiered and dynamic business ends StupidHub for good, but what I don't get is how they could do that while simultaneously being partnered with SH....), but this year's Monster Seats are our first 4A into it. They've also divided the Monster Seats into four zones, instead of going row by row.

Meanwhile I'm still waiting for the Orioles to cave on those Opening Day tix. They definitely have some left, because they're still offering partial and full season plans with the promise of being able to buy OD. So if they don't sell those plans in the next two weeks, they're gonna have to do some dumping! And I'm waiting right here with my pooper scooper! Something's gotta give!
