Take me out to the ball game...

.. Take me out with the crowd.
Buy me some peanuts and Cracker Jack...

What? They cost how much? Then just give me one hot dog. WHAT?

... I don't care if I never get back.
Let me root, root, root for the home team,
If they don't win it's a shame...


The Indians slaughtered the Yankees, 22-4, at Yankee Stadium before an angry crowd of 45,167 that chanted for outfielder Nick Swisher to pitch...

The Indians pasted the Yankees with a record-shattering, 14-run second inning -- the worst inning the storied organization ever has endured ... The 22 runs tied for the most allowed by the Yanks at home in their 107 major league seasons...

... SO, you plunked down $2,625 for a ticket to yesterday's game at the new Yankee Stadium and then watched the Indians put up 14 runs in the second inning, the worst inning in Yankees history.

Think of it this way. That's only $187.50 per run. A bargain.... [NY Post]
And you saw history in the making! How does one put a price on that?

For the record, the four worst beatings the Yankees have taken in their storied 107 years have all been administered by the Cleveland Indians (22-0 in 2004, 22-4 yesterday, 19-1 in 2006, and 24-6 in 1928). What would you have given as the odds of that?

(Yes, I'm a Mets fan. It's a hard life, but we have our small pleasures.)
