What's the world coming to when you can't bribe a judge with Yankees tickets?

That's what every major leaguer is wondering tonight.

Because the prize of driving 100-mph with a hooker in the carwell and a line of coke on her bare neck is rising every day.

Says the Daily News:

A Bronx man who offered a judge Yankees tickets in exchange for clearing up violations against a building has been sentenced to three years in prison.

Celestino Orta, 40, was busted after the administrative law judge, Tracy Peeler, refused the bribe offer but reported him to the city Department of Investigation, which launched a sting operation.

Three tickets... no deal?

Wait a minute: Were the tickets for a Royals game?

"In the sting operation, DOI investigators posed as corrupt clerks who had heard about his offer to Peeler and were willing to accept bribes to dismiss violations. Orta treated the undercover probers to a Yankees-Mets game at Yankee Stadium."

So wait...they actually went to the game?
