I think the criticism of CitiField has been way overblown. I've been there three times already (exhibition game, workout day for season ticket plan holders, Opening Day) and I think - compared to ballparks nationwide - the prices are very reasonable ($5.75 for a Shake Shack Burger, $5 for a regular beer, $3.75 for a soda), the seats are roomy even in my upper deck locale, and the free kid friendly stuff (batting cages, wiffle ball, dunk tank featuring someone in the opposing team's jersey) is great fun. The place to me seems extraordinarily fan friendly - far more so than Shea was. And yes, the seats in farmost left and right lose sight of their respective corners, but the upper deck is so much closer to the field than it was at Shea that there is that inherent tradeoff. The complaints I have heard about crowds strike me as reactionary -- of course the concourses are packed; everyone's checking out the new digs! I give CitiField a solid grade, especially when I take into account that my 15 game weekday ticket package (with playoff options) for this year actually cost me about $40 less than my 13 game Sunday package did at Shea last year.
As a bitter Mets fan, let me just say that I would be more than happy to swap Ollie Perez for him, straight up. And I'd even throw in a spare corner outfielder to boot.
Why in the world would we give up Martinez for Delmon Young when FMart has far and away more star potential than Young? As for Dye - he is 35 and I am not comfortable continuing to give youth for experience (a la the Milledge trade, among others).
Wheeler didn\'t work scoreless relief. He gave up the wild pitch that scored the tying run. Does that not count because the runner wasn\'t his?
As a NYer who was subjected to McCarver\'s insane logic for too many years, I can only say - typical Tim. Does anyone really take his opinion seriously anymore?
True ... as a Met plan holder (Sunday games) I can affirm that they now just check bags at Shea, but once cleared, you can bring them in.
