While reading this AP story about the 2008 schedule, I caught the last line which stated that "bleacher seats not purchased as part of a season-ticket package rose from $12 to $14." Since the season ticket prices have been set at $10 since 1998, I was hopeful that we would continue to be rewarded as faithful members of Ruthville.
So, I went over to yankees.com and logged into my account assuming MLB had invoiced me already for next year. Here is what I found:
Two season seats in the bleachers is now $1,969 or $12 per ticket plus the shipping and handling fees.
The final Opening Day at the House that Ruth Built will be March 31st against the Blue Jays and the last regular season game will be September 21st against the Blue Jays. MLB seriously couldn't have let the last game be against the Red Sox, the Yankees rival and the team that played the first game in Yankee Stadium? I guess that would be too much to ask, so instead the Sox get to host the Yanks for their final weekend. And that's why you don't let computers decide on scheduling.
