"The Dirty Little Secret About Why Fans Are NOT So Enthusiastic @ MLB Postseason Series"

A friend of mine, who was once drafted by the KC Royals & played in their minor league system, a native of Park Slope Brooklyn, who grew up in Suffolk County, on Long Island, told me about the distribution of MLB Post Season Tickets:

The Home Team does NOT control this process, as this is in the hands of The Office Of The Commissioner Of Baseball;

1/3 of the tickets are for The Corporate Sponsors, while 1/3 of the tickets are for the 30 MLB Teams, & only 1/3 are for the Home Team for sale & distribution;

So if one wonders why the crowds at Shea Stadium & Busch Stadium III, sound awfully quiet by comparison to a Regular Season Game, the above are the reasons why this is so. Perhaps, in the case of Shea & Busch Stadiums, the remaining 1/3 is split between Corporate Season Ticket Holders & Regular Joe(Judy? Thanks, Tommy), it means that only 1/6 actually will go to ACTUAL Fans;

"Donald? Your Fired!"

With the ad agencies & many of those corporations, based in NYC, no WONDER Shea Stadium feels like a Quasi-Official Yankees Home Game. It's off to a pub, for me tonight, to watch Game 7;

FOX-8:19PM Eastern/7:19 Central;
Where do they get these crazy starting times from? The BBC?

I just hope that the "Grecian Formula", doesn't affect the cranial functions of Tim Mc Carver. He's driving everybody CRAZY, especially if that's the case.

I'm NOT totally disappointed by the Mets, as they gave me a 40th Anniversary Season to remember:

I just went crazy with Pedro & El Duque, going down in September, but they're in the process of taking back this City from the Yankees;

I'm free from the stress, now;

Tigers in 4.

Actually, I enjoy Mc Carver:

For all his dumb comments, but he does bring something to the table;

If anything, he gives us bloggers something to write about.
