A couple of things for you to devour on your lunch break, since nothing much is going on in Yankeeland:
- Some people aren’t too happy with current plans to replace the 22 acres of park used for New Yankee Stadium. The plan, as it stands now, is to put an artificial field atop Garage A, along with handball courts, basketball courts, a 400-meter track, and children’s play equipment. One side says that it’s not the same as an open-field park with real grass and trees. The other side says that “the rooftop park is all recreation activities, where you wouldn’t have a lot of trees anyway.” Plus, they say, a street-level park would likely be designed with artificial turf, anyway.
- Fans in Schenectady, NY, will be able to see 21 games next year on MyTV4. Is this the upstate equivalent of My9?
- If you’re going to hawk a Mickey Mantle card on eBay, make sure you can deliver the goods, lest ye end up in the slammer.
