Mets & Yankees Want Their Cut$

Postby bigh0rt » Mon Mar 24, 2008 10:06 pm

The Yankees and Mets are in secret talks with the city to buy their old ballparks before the wrecking balls hit - so they can plunder them for lucrative memorabilia to peddle to fans, The Post has learned.

A spokesman for Mayor Bloomberg confirmed the negotiations but would not say how the deals might go down - specifically, whether the city would hope to get a lump sum from the teams or a percentage of the profits of any sale or auction of items.

I will buy a piece, nothing too crazy. And if they sell bags of the infield dirt for like $25 a pop then la di da I just nailed half my Christmas list. :-D

Maine has a good swing for a pitcher but on anything that moves, he has no chance. And if it's a fastball, it has to be up in the zone. Basically, the pitcher has to hit his bat. - Mike Pelfrey

Yeah, provided the cost isn't too crazy, I'd definitely buy a piece. I've been there so many times, it would definitely mean something to me and be a nice addition to my sports collection.
