Yanks, Mets fighting over space

By

And I mean literally fighting over space. Last year, the Yanks sent some dirt from their current stadium into Outer Space. This October, the Mets will be sending their 2007 home plate into the Final Frontier. What the point of all this is, I have no idea.

    I think that we need to go all the way and send Carl Pavano into space. Hopefully before he has a chance to injure himself . . . I mean pitch in the Bronx again.

    Can you really injure your arm in zero gravity?

    I guess the teams can afford to things like this when you raise ticket prices every year, and have limited the non-corporate fans to the bleachers & nose bleed seats.

    MLB recently announced plans to have two teams open the 2015 season with a series on the moon.

      Weird, why would they have them open at Coors Field?

    I’m a big Willie Randolph fan, so, I no longer watch the Mets. Will the plate be hand carried by Omar?

    I don’t understand. Could there be less meaning to something?

  • UNION YES.

    Launching dirt into outer space? So they can waste money on crap like this, but I can’t bring in my own food into the stadium next year? That’s like pork barrel spending. Erroneous!
