My wife showed me something interesting online.

There are four playoff series going on in Major League Baseball.

Average ticket prices for three of them are pretty much the same.

Average ticket prices for Red Sox-Yankees in Boston are TWICE as expensive.

 

People talk about our region's snobbery all of the time,

and maybe they have a point.

For some inexplicable, perverse reason,

I actually felt proud upon seeing that.

Wish we had links golf over here.

My father years ago had a chart of Sox 40 man roster players, minor leaguers and available players. This was B4 computers and Excel, The man loved his baseball. I follow but not to his extent. Love

Absolutely, jlukes.

For better or worse, that's capitalism.

We have the greatest pro football dynasty in history, and despite that, nothing will ever be more important than Red Sox-Yankees.

If our first playoff game had gone up against Patriots-Colts on Thursday instead of starting on Friday, it would have won the local ratings easily.

Red Sox games in April often beat Bruins or Celtics playoff games.

 

Both teams, Red Sox and Yankees, have so many fans on the road that looking at the uniforms is more reliable than listening to the crowd to identify the home team.

One time my daughter and wife went to a game in Baltimore together and said that it was almost embarrassing.

 

Not at Yankee or at Fenway, though.  That atmosphere is almost scary. The intensity is palpable.

Game two at Fenway in an hour.

Price vs. Tanaka.

Price is a basket case pitching in the Bronx, but he's at home tonight.

Going up 2-0 in a best of five wouldn't suck.

Time to shut down and migrate to my recliner.

Nitey nite.

Sitting in mine now. I have a Red Sox hat sitting on the back. I was touching the hat last night when JD hit the homer. I know it was all my doing! Hoping for a W tonight.


I was touching myself when he hit that homer. Still going to be tough to beat the Yanks.

Judge has some power. I guess being 6,9 275 helps. He reminds me of the wwf wrestler Kane. And those tickets could sell really for whatever they want Boston and New York stadiums will be sold out. Especially a series like this with these two power house teams. Go yanks!

It's nice to see the Sox and Yanks living up to their rivalry this year. The animosity is always there, but when either team is struggling it's a bit harder to really get into the match up.

Pricing when these two meet gets crazy in the regular season, playoffs are an entirely different animal. I'd be curious to see how high they go if it makes it to game 5.

I love the Yankees-Red Sox match ups already. Add something to play for and it becomes a powder keg. I love October baseball

The cretinous reprobates that run television have put the Red Sox game up against the Patriots game Sunday night..

This is unacceptable.

I'll have to DVR the Pats game.

If the Chiefs win, I'll just erase it.

It the Pats win,  I'll at the very least skim through the recording.

 

I take nothing for granted with the defending champion Astros.

They're a solid ball club,

and we didn't do much with them during the season.

 

I think the Sox game starts about an hour earlier,

but Sox playoff games usually take at least four hours while Pats games only take three.

The Astros completely outplayed my Red Sox in every phase of the game last night.

I'm half-tempted to watch Patriots vs. Chiefs instead of the Sox tonight,

especially with the much maligned David Price on the hill,

but I'm still not awake enough to make a major decision like that.

More caffeination  is still required at this point.

Price will either be awesome or be completely awful, no in between. I have trouble watching Price he drives me crazy.
My take is you’ll be watching the Pats game early.
