    WTP – Stubhub or the Yankee Ticket Exchange are the easiest way to buy tickets. If you’re staying at a hotel or a friends place, you can ask them to print the electronic tickets for you.
    ——————————————————————————————————————–

    Shame-
    Thanks for the feedback. I will look into those services today.
    Since I’m in California, I literally am in the dark regarding how to purchase Yankees tickets, except for going through Ticketmaster.

    So in my head I am debating whether to buy them at the stadium box office on the day of the game, purchase them elsewhere in advance, etc…..

    Not sure why being in California would put you in the dark on how to buy baseball tickets. Stubhub is the way to go. Put a boot heel on Hal’s hand while you’re at it.

    Jerkface-
    I am my trepidations when it comes to purchasing Yankee Tickets since I’m not familiar
    with the process one bit.
    So many little questions to ask, minor details to cover, etc….
    After following up on Shame’s suggestion, I think the Yankee Ticket Exchange makes me
    feel more at ease with the steps.
    I could take a chance and buy tickets at the stadium box office prior to the game, but then I might be at the mercy of what is available. If a certain section that I don’t want to sit in in my only option, then I will be very disappointed.
    Right now I’m learning towards section 103-104 or 130-135

    Continuing that thought. Back in the days of the Abstract, twenty years before Moneyball, Bill James used to talk about one of his pet peeves. It was the phrase “major league talent.” James hated that phrase because he thought it meant some marginal guys stay on a major league roster because they’ve been there awhile and are considered major league talent while others stay in AAA because, among other things, they just don’t look the part. James believed every team had a couple guys in AAA to could do as well or better than some of the guys on the current roster. Does anyone know who is poster child was for this theory?

    It was Ken Phelps. James loved, loved Ken Phelps. He’d talk about every year. How all he’d do was walk and hit home runs but was never giving a shot because he didn’t look the part. Well, if I remember correctly, Phelps eventually got some playing time and did quite well. Then got traded to the Yanks and became a Seinfeld joke.

    Here’s a provocative question. Assuming Tex comes back healthy this year. Who do you think would be more productive against ML right-handed pitching? Tex or Corban Joseph? Hell, I know who’d be cheaper.

  5. Jerkface April 22nd, 2013 at 12:34 pm

    Stubhub is perfectly valid, you won’t get screwed over or anything. I’d compare prices between stubhub & ticket exchange for the dates you want to go and buy the cheapest/best seats you want.

    And then its just a matter of waiting for the physical tickets (stubhub) or printing out the barcodes.

  6. Warning Track Power April 22nd, 2013 at 12:38 pm

    Jerkface-I might be in the minority, but having to pay the “extra fees” really bugs me.
    Yankee Ticket exchange charges a $4.95 fee for the order, then another $5-$10 per ticket fee.
    Am I the only person who is irritated by this process? So much so that I almost feel like
    walking up to the stadium and purchasing tickets without the fee.
    UGH-Stuck between a rock and a hard place.
    Is there a ticket office/ticket center in Manhattan that does not charge fees? Maybe the
    Official Yankee Store?

    About that boot heel into Hal? I am seriously considering that and a punch to the solarplexis as well.

  7. Ys Guy April 22nd, 2013 at 12:40 pm

    i just did a quick check on some of the sections you mentioned and stubhub has better seats at below face in a couple of those sections.

    personally i prefer a 200 level seat near the infield (214 b or something like that) for closer to $100 than the outfield view at around $90 bucks, but thats a personal preferance.

    anyway you can call up stubhub in one window and ticketmaster in another and pick out the exact seats and the exact price you want.

    but they’re pretty much always cheaper on stubhub.

  8. Ys Guy April 22nd, 2013 at 12:48 pm

    interestingly, the snob section ‘inside the moat’ even has its own separate purchase section within the ticketmaster website.

    the richies shouldnt even have to ‘rub websites’ with the commoners…

    ——————————————————————————————————–
    Excellent suggestion regarding the 200 level. I can get a view of the seats via StubHub and those seats are much closer than the OF view. I never thought of that.
    Now I’ve been told that purchasing via StubHub would mean the tickets would be shipped to me here in California? That’s not possible since my flight is 2 days away.
    Is that true or did someone tell me a lie?

  10. Bronx Jeers April 22nd, 2013 at 12:54 pm

    interestingly, the snob section ‘inside the moat’ even has its own separate purchase section within the ticketmaster website.

    ———————————-

    I think that’s because you cant buy individual tickets for the legends suite seats. It’s a 1 year commitment minimum.

    I always wait to buy tix on stubhub. Now you can only buy print at home tickets between 48 hours and 3 hours prior to the game.

  11. Jerkface April 22nd, 2013 at 12:56 pm

    You used to be able to get digital tickets from stubhub but the Yankees created the ticket exchange, opted out of their stubhub deal, and sued stubhub. So you can now only get electronic ticks from stubhub if you buy 3 days before the event.

  12. Warning Track Power April 22nd, 2013 at 1:05 pm

    Jerk-I am totally learning towards sec 229. Personally, I prefer to sit on the aisle compared to the middle of a row.
    Going to be an adventure finally deciding which tickets to buy and from which service.

  13. Shame Spencer April 22nd, 2013 at 1:09 pm

    I’m less about section and more about row. I used to only sit with the Creatures but they’ve become an attraction of their own and the seats ended up getting pricey. Usually I can find seats in the first row of the 300 or 400 sections for less than $10.

  14. Shame Spencer April 22nd, 2013 at 1:16 pm

    We’ve talked a lot about the media/Twitter lately, and I found this: http://globalgrind.com/news/24.....el-skolnik

    Crazy interesting article about breaking news for anyone remotely into that ish.

  15. mick April 22nd, 2013 at 1:17 pm

    Was I batting clean-up? ‘Cause that’s my specialty. Of course, I’m good at table-setting, too. I can sacrifice, but when you’re a mom, they call it being a martyr…..
    =====================================
    Doreen, you sure are versatile, we can bat you anywhere in the lineup ;)

    I’ve been a part of that world for the last week. At times I found it captivating but now its just scary stupid.

    I never heard of the term “false flag” until this weekend and I really wish I could go back in time and un-learn it. I hung on for a couple of days too long :shock:

    ——————————————————————————————————–
    This will be my 1st trip to the “new” Yankee Stadium and since I only have plans to see
    1 game on this trip, I don’t want to sit in the 300 or 400 section.
    Row is very important. Getting a front row seat would be idea in the 200 sections(if possible).
    Then I guess my 2nd preference would be aisle seats compared to directly in the middle of
    the row.

  18. Bronx Jeers April 22nd, 2013 at 1:32 pm

    WTP,

    You can use ticketmaster to identify the aisle seats.

    Ultimately it’s reflective of a complete change in the consumption of news. It isn’t completely new as it’s been trending this way for a while, but I think we’re either very close to or have just passed a tipping point.

    DePaula made baseball america’s monday prospect notebook

    Rafael DePaula, rhp, Yankees: DePaula’s on-again/off-again domination of the low Class A South Atlantic League was on again on Sunday. He held Hickory scoreless for five innings as he struck out 10. It’s the second time DePaula has struck out 10 or more in four starts for Charleston. In his other two outings he’s allowed five runs and 12 baserunners in eight innings.

  21. Carly April 22nd, 2013 at 1:40 pm

    Gerrit Cole appears to have some trouble holding runners, but some the blame lays with Tony Sanchez

    The Bats also took advantage of the Cole-Tony Sanchez battery for six steals in six attempts. Basestealers are eight of nine against Cole this year. That’s the most steals allowed in the International League. Some of that falls to Sanchez, who ranks dead last in the IL with 14 steals allowed in 17 attempts. But some of it also falls on Cole. He does a good job of varying his times to the plate and has a decent pickoff move for a righthander, but Cole isn’t the quickest to home. Catchers have thrown out just 6 of 26 basestealers with Cole on the mound in his pro career.

    My jealousy of the Rangers farm continues

    • Nick Williams, lf, Rangers: It’s easy to get overlooked in low Class A Hickory’s lineup, but on a team that includes Nomar Mazarra, Luis Marte, Joey Gallo, Jorge Alfaro and Lewis Brinson, it’s been Williams who has had the breakout April. Williams homered twice on Friday to up his season total to seven, second best in the minors behind Stockton’s Max Muncy. He finished off his weekend with a pair of two-for-four days.

  27. J. Alfred Prufrock April 22nd, 2013 at 2:02 pm

    Joseph’s shown that power’s in his future and in NYS he’d have little trouble finding the RF porch. Even as a 1B though, I’d be concerned with his lack of size and athleticism; he’d also really have to learn the footwork, pivoting, etc. Be a lot more feasible if he threw left-handed. OTOH if he can bring his .900 OPS to the Bronx with him, then we’d put up with him ;). Perfect bat for the Yankees, since the power is on the rise to go along with the plate discipline and contact ability. He’s kinda blocked by Tex though. Too bad we couldn’t combine Joseph LH with righty Tex :)

  28. Rich in NJ April 22nd, 2013 at 2:17 pm

    “Yah he will”

    Or would. He is definitely part of the solution, even if he can’t play SS.

    #Mets have signed RHP D.J. Mitchell. He made four relief appearances for #Yankees last season. Had 1 start for Tacoma (AAA) this year.

    Probably Pruf and I are the only ones who care…

    Um, aside from the obvious, we don’t miss DJ’s bat vs. LHP??

  31. Rich in NJ April 22nd, 2013 at 2:54 pm

    I care more about George Kontos, who has struggled in a very, very, very SSS v. LHB this season, but has otherwise been pretty good in the ML.

    I didn’t know phelps was the shutdown option out of the bullpen when the opposition has a chance to win the game. Good to know..

    Really? Phelps should be a long man or a mop up man IMO.

    Sorry, the binder says Joba cannot pitch until the 7th inning, even if the fit is hitting the shan in the 6th and the 7th could be much easier.

    Chad Jennings April 22nd, 2013 at 11:41 am
    This is really random, but I’m on my second flight — and in my second country — of the day and starting to get some work done…

    Before most games, I have a lineup post saved as a draft on my phone. I type in the batting order I’m expecting just to make things quicker when I get to the clubhouse (only have to make minor adjustments rather than type the whole thing). I just tried to come up with the lineup I’m expecting for today, and right now I have Francisco Cervelli batting second. Is that nuts? Do I need more sleep?

    The Yankees are facing a lefty. Ben Francisco isn’t getting it done. Eduardo Nunez is the better pick — in theory — but he’s also been pretty bad at the plate. Girardi said a few days ago that he wants to keep Vernon Wells in the No. 5 spot. So why not Cervelli at 2?

    And even if it’s not the way Girardi goes — and even if you think it’s a horrible idea — it sure does say a lot about this team vLHP that I’m thinking it’s worth consideration at this point.

    Also … If Girardi wants to finally give Brett Gardner a day off, is it better to DH him against a lefty (put Francisco in the outfield today or tomorrow) or to put Gardner on the bench Wednesday and go with a Wells/Ichiro/Boesch outfield?

    These are the things I think about when I write a 10-name blog post just to save a little bit of time in the clubhouse.

    I suggested they I would prefer Cervelli hitting #2 vs lhp a couple days ago when they last faced a lhp and Girardi put Francisco there.

  35. Warning Track Power April 22nd, 2013 at 3:21 pm

    I scored Yankee tickets. Took advantage of the

    Thanks to all the fans here that offered tips and suggestions for an out of towner like myself.
    Was very informative and so helpful
