    3. Try parking anywhere in NYC and it's expensive as hell.

    4. And also, the parking lot is run by an outside company, not the Yankees.
    1. Try taking the kids from Long Island on the train and see how much that costs

    2. There are plenty of stadiums significantly cheaper, I've sat field level at Camden Yards for 45$

    3. Most of NYC is not the ****ing south bronx

    4. Just because the parking is managed by an outside group doesn't mean the yankees aren't taking a cut.

    Dude, they have an awesome plan:

    They will make Joba a starter and call up the killer b's.


    Duh.

    1. I do take kids from long island to the game, I generally go to 40-44 games a year. Won't be going to that many games any more as I feel the value of the team product on the field is not worth the cost.

    2. Look at how cheap everything in Baltimore is compared to NY?

    3. South bronx is part of NYC. It's one of the five boroughs? No? Unless it magically became part of another state? Or upstate NY? Am I missing something here?

    4. I'm sure the Yankees take a cut. But it's still the outside company that set's the prices.

    IF THEY PAN OUT. How much did we hear about Betances and Banuelos a few years ago? They were untouchable. And the kids you are referring to havent played above single a ball so lets not get to excited hoping they are going to save the team.

    Some happen to be in Double-A Ball. Who will start there and most likely see a bump to Triple-A this year. Meaning they can possibly even make the roster next year.

    Banuelos is only 21. He was in Triple-A at Age 20. Hi.

    -He's still young, when he heals from tommy john surgery he will make an impact on this rotation by 2015. Add too the fact that he is a lefty.

    Montero, if he even had a position other then DH, would of put up excellent numbers in Yankees stadium.

    I agree brackman is junk.

    Bentances has great stuff, just can't command, maybe our new pitching coach we just hired can fix him. If not, oh well.

    Banuelous is only 21. In Triple-A coming off tommy john surgery. He will impact the rotation by 2015.

    If I may translate :

    Montero stinks.

    Brackman works at Taco Bell.

    Betances has great stuff but can't command it? I have great stuff but can't throw over 70mph. So, we both suck.

    Banuelos will live in Costa Rica by 2015.

    1. So you understand its less expensive to drive at 18$ round trip on the LIRR

    2. You were comparing the pricing of the rest of baseball to the yankees and stating there wasn't a huge difference, thank you for proving my point and illustrating that there certainly is a difference.

    3. The Bronx is 1/5 of NYC and the most dangerous and hardest to get to borough, not in the same universe of prices in manhattan or bk or queens, which is my point

    4. Ok? Its still radically expensive.

    Here are some solutions.

    1. Ronnier Mustelier- Guy can hit, and he can slide into right field.
    2. David Adams- 2B, but if yankees re-sign cano and DH a-rod can play third(next year)
    3. Austin Romine- C- If his back can hold up.

    There's solutions too our three current problems.

    Cost effective.
