StubHub, that cruel website that kept Yankee fans away from the playoffs last October, is still underpricing the team product

Over the winter, the Yankees bolted from MLB's megadeal with the legalized scalper website called StubHub, advancing some bizarre, twisted, Moonian logic that empty seats at Yankee games came about because secondary market sellers weren't gouging enough money for tickets. I personally think the Yankees' rationale stemmed from something Charo once said on the Merv Griffin Show. I cannot adequately summarize it, without getting into subatomic string theory. So let's just take a step back and accept this conclusion:

Yankee mucho brass say StubHub bad, very bad.

Turns out, doesn't matter what Yankee mucho brass say. According to the Daily Murdoch, StubHub is offering its spring MLB packages, and Yankee tickets can be had for as little as $8. Eight dollars. That's a six-pack of Genny Cream and a bag of Doritos. Eight dollars? Hal and Hank won't like that. But for the rest of us, life is good.

The Yankees want to teach the world to sing in perfect harmony, which would mean buying tickets at full value (or more) from TicketMaster, Bruce Springsteen's favorite villain. I say, good luck with that. And to the rest of us, remember: StubHub very bad. Keep repeating it, over and over, especially when you're sitting in a $200 seat next to a fan who smuggled in a six pack of Genny Cream and a bag of Doritos.

Between cheap Yankees tickets and psychedelic antibiotics, this world is going to hell.

Yeah, but how much is the Stadium charging for a frankfurter and a large brewski?

I would gladly pay up to $10 for a ticket if I didn't have to have the Genny Cream Ale.
