Initially, I didn’t notice these pictures that were attached to this week’s Yankees press release about ticket pricing for next season. These are drawings of the planned Field MVP Club Lounge and new Outdoor Suite Boxes. Beneath the pictures is a chart of ticket prices for next season. No World Series game tonight. Might as well wrap up the day with this.

    This has Levine written all over it.

    :(

  2. chicken_stanley October 25th, 2013 at 9:27 pm

    Shame – are you still there? have a pic for you

  3. MTU October 25th, 2013 at 9:29 pm

    Chicken-

    Shame is gargling w salt water after hearing about next year’s Team.

    Give her a minute.

    ;)

  4. MTU October 25th, 2013 at 9:31 pm

    I hope I do not have to join her.

    Lets worry about winning some baseball games Hal

  6. chicken_stanley October 25th, 2013 at 9:38 pm

    MTU – if salt water doesn’t work, my family always relied on vapo-rub !!!

  7. MTU October 25th, 2013 at 9:40 pm

    The Yankees should take my Rx blake.

    They won’t get the flu this Winter if they do. No Vitamins, No vaccines, No Tiny Pedroia robots.

    They’ll be healthy right into ST.

    ;)

  8. MTU October 25th, 2013 at 9:40 pm

    And no salt water either.

    ;)

    Chicken-

    Electric shock works well too.

    You don’t even remember being sick.

    ;)

  10. MTU October 25th, 2013 at 9:47 pm

    I wasn’t even the slightest bit lonely on my short hike today down by the River.

    I had the company of a beautiful Monarch Butterfly who decided to fly beside me for part of the way.

    I wonder what he would have said to me if he could have spoken ?

    But in his own way I think he did.

    :)

  11. jmills October 25th, 2013 at 9:48 pm

    Sad thing is, when they administered electro shock treatment to, Sylvia Plath, they didn’t do so much as hold her hand or even give the best writer, a sedative. Hey, Sylvia, you sure did change the face of things, thanks;

  12. chicken_stanley October 25th, 2013 at 9:48 pm

    Not being morbid. Sylvia Plath is unjustly portrayed as this suicidal ” crazy ” ” female ” poet.

    Her work always has a heart for the broken stone :)

  21. jmills October 25th, 2013 at 9:58 pm

    Ok, I promise, I’ll stop putting an emphasis on poetry.

    I would be very wary of flu shots.

    My doctor told me they should be outlawed, but it’s unlikely you’ll hear this from a mainstream doctor. (Mine is an internal medicine specialist who has also studied energy medicine and other holistic modalities).

    “Flu vaccines are directly linked to about a dozen cases of paralysis and brain damage each year. Many researchers believe these flu vaccine c*cktails produce delayed reactions and long-term health consequences.

    Dr. Hugh F..denberg, a world-leading immuno geneticist, has extensively studied the effects of the flu vaccine on neurological health. The results of his research indicate that an individual has a 10-time greater chance of getting Alzheimer’s disease after receiving five flu shots in the course of their life compared to individuals who have had zero to one shot in their lifetime.

    Dr. F..denberg and other researchers believe the increased risk of Alzheimer’s is a result of the combination of mercury and aluminum within the flu vaccine. Individuals with poor blood sugar signaling and weakened anti-oxidant defense systems will bio-accumulate these heavy metals in areas of their brain with repeated vaccine and other environmental exposure.

    You have such an antediluvian view of Donovan.

    I drove by a sign for Leeds a couple weeks ago. I can still hear the songs about in order in my head.

    Thanks JAP.

    Was that stuff you told me about called “lomitin” ?

  33. J. Alfred Prufrock October 25th, 2013 at 10:06 pm

    mills, I don’t need to come around on Orr. I saw enough of him to know how good he is.

    However, if I’m starting a team and can select one player, I’m going with either No. 66 or No. 99.

    :)

    Orr would be my third choice.

  34. MTU October 25th, 2013 at 10:08 pm

    And I like the Arts generally.

    So please continue anytime you like.

    ///

    yeah, but only in one spot and very mild. I thought I got bit by a mosquito or had a spider bite and then I realized, hey, it’s the lomatium doing its thing.

    I have never had any kind of adverse reaction, though. I did build up gradually, starting with six drops and then building up the dosage. That is a very smart way to go about it, or you can add dandelion root, which has some synergistic affect on the system with the lomatium and helps pre-empt any rash (I would guess that the dandelion assists the liver in some way).

    mills,

    I saw all three of those guys. Orr was tremendous. He revolutionized the position of defenseman.

    He could not control a game, though, the way Lemieux and Gretzky could.

  53. MTU October 25th, 2013 at 10:31 pm

    “Viruses pass through respiratory droplets and usually when they are launched from a person’s mouth who is talking or sneezing with such force, a little humidity is hardly a buffer. I would like to see the study that suggests this.”

    You bet.

    This is not the link I previously found, but it is a more clinical breakdown of the herb, including it’s rash causing tendencies in some people.

    Like I said, I would just gradually build up so the system can adapt to it, and so you can monitor your reactions to it:

  60. J. Alfred Prufrock October 25th, 2013 at 10:43 pm

    mills, Lemieux was resented by English Canada, which was very protective of The Great One.

    Although, even Gretzky opined that had Lemieux been healthy, he would have broken Gretzky’s records. Having seen both, I think they were equals to each other, but no one else was their equal and the game won’t see the likes of either again.

  61. MTU October 25th, 2013 at 10:46 pm

    “Eating healthy didn’t make polio virtually extinct……”

    Polio is an interesting case because I believe the single biggest cause of Polio ( especially in developing nations), was from the actual vaccine. Of course that same vaccine prevented countless cases of Polio as well. Double edge sword right?….

    Well the kicker to all that is…. all those cases of Polio could have been prevented if the “dead” virus shot was given instead of the “live”oral Polio vaccine.

    Of course the “live” oral version was cheaper and easier to administer.

    Perhaps if you were one of the unlucky few who contracted it, you could take solace in knowing that at least the Pharmaceutical company maximized their profits.

    Not a big fan of, nor do I trust the vaccine Pharmaceutical giant money making machines or their Government stooges.

    Rant over :D

    I can’t even begin to say how much I agree with you.

    I can’t even stand to listen to the paid advertisements, TV commercials, or see drug ads in magazines. It’s a complete racket, and with so many iatrogenic deaths, it is stunning that people just dutifully go fill prescriptions.

    It is utterly depressing, heartbreaking, enraging, etc.

    With the exception of a few cases, don’t walk – run – when a doctor prescribes a pharma drug.

    Dr. F..denberg and other researchers believe the increased risk of Alzheimer’s is a result of the combination of mercury and aluminum within the flu vaccine.

    _______________

    I’m sure there are multiple studies where aluminum and mercury are linked to Alzheimer’s, in addition to insulin regulation. So basically cut out the sugar and eat seafood – high in omega 3 fatty acids (2/3 of brain cells are DHA omega 3) and zinc. Zinc acts as a chelator – it binds to heavy metals and the body eliminates them. Every so often I’ll supplement with zinc to lower my mercury, aluminum and lead. You have to be careful though as zinc competes for the same receptors as iron and you don’t want to lower your iron too drastically or you’ll affect your red blood cells and those are the guys that carry oxygen throughout the body.

  98. blake October 26th, 2013 at 8:06 am

    “So basically cut out the sugar and eat seafood – high in omega 3 fatty acids (2/3 of brain cells are DHA omega 3) and zinc. Zinc acts as a chelator – it binds to heavy metals and the body eliminates them. ”

    There is a greater risk of mercury damage from a lifestyle of eating a lot of seafood than there would be from the trade amounts in an immunization…..some type of fish actually have lots of mercury in them….

  102. Bret The Hitman October 26th, 2013 at 8:15 am

    This would seem to back up what Blake is saying.

    http://www.nytimes.com/2007/12......html?_r=0

    __________

    Well the first thing is, the study doesn’t prove cause and effect. The conclusion is not that temperature causes higher incidence of influenza. Temperature may be a contributory factor. And it’s likely not the primary contributory factor. Vitamin D status is.

    My issues with that study at first glance

    1)Unreliable data

    They tested guinea pigs and couldn’t test on human subjects (obviously for ethical reasons but the data does not describe human conditions, for instance, do guinea pigs sneeze or go to school or travel on the subway or work in closed office spaces in heated rooms?).

    2)Experimental design. Without digging up the study and actually reading it past what the NYT tells me. How did the researchers raise temperature in the trial? Did they expose guinea pigs to UV light? How did they lower temperature? Did they limit UV light exposure? So were they measuring the affect of temperature change or differences in UV light exposure and thus vitamin D. Even without item 2, I still have these other issues I’ve outlined.

    2)Conflict of interest.

    The author of the study recommends a “flu shot”. How convenient. There could be a conflict of interest here. Of course the vaccine makers want you to think you’re a helpless victim to temperature (where is a study showing higher prevalence of influenza in the Inuit? The Inuit are more human than the guinea pig, right?) and the only way out is a shot. Surely you can’t beat the winter by popping some vitamin D. You’re stuck. Go get the needle now. In failing to prescribe a comprehensive prevention program, the author thus completely ignores and thus dismisses possibility of other contributory factors, some carrying mountains of supporting evidence or “actual data” such as vitamin D. BTW, I don’t like the use of the phrase “actual data” in the report. It suggests researchers supporting vitamin D status don’t have “actual data”. They do.

    3)Lack of balance.

    Vitamin D status – a contributory factor (I believe the primary factor) is marginalized. It’s reduced to one sentence: “Others proposed a diminished immune response because people make less vitamin D or melatonin when days are shorter.” If you are so bold and so confident in your results, present these other studies or at least one study someone can check up and review and let the reader decide. There’s a gross imbalance here.

    Like maybe quote this guy. Like the study author, he’s also a PhD

    Blake,

    There is more zinc in seafood which counteracts the mercury. Avoid tuna and shark, sure. But most of the mercury in the brain gets there due to burning of coal for electricity (75% of our electricity comes from coal burning) which produces mercury emissions in the air we breathe.

    I agree though the bigger problem with Alzheimer’s is a carbohydrate based diet.

    I have to pick up the halloween drugs,….uh, I mean candy. Kit kats, the kids like kit kats. Last year I made the mistake of getting almond chocolate bars as well. I was down to only the almond bars and some angry mother started berating me about allergies. Biotch that she was; I mean, I was being gracious about the whole evening and hardly needed some lecture from some righteous freak at my door. She started going on about solidarity, making me want to dissertate about Ayn Rand’s anti collectivism and stuff – hope I get the chance this year. Kit kats, this year, I’m only getting, kit kats.

    From Dr. Mercola’s link:

    Yet another study published this month found that schoolchildren who received supplemental vitamin D had far fewer incidents of both flu and asthma attacks.

    http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pu.....ailssearch

    The randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial compared two groups of schoolchildren, from December, 2008 through March, 2009.

    One group of 167 children received 1,200 IU’s of vitamin D3 daily. The other group, consisting of an equal number of children received a placebo. Only 18 of the children in the vitamin D group came down with influenza, compared to 31 of the children in the control group.

    They also found that:

    “… in children with a previous diagnosis of asthma, asthma attacks as a secondary outcome occurred in 2 children receiving vitamin D(3) compared with 12 children receiving placebo.”

  109. blake October 26th, 2013 at 8:22 am

    “Well the first thing is, the study doesn’t prove cause and effect. The conclusion is not that temperature causes higher incidence of influenza. Temperature may be a contributory factor. And it’s likely not the primary contributory factor. Vitamin D status is.”

    I didn’t say it was the only factor….only one of probably several factors that makes the flu is a bigger problem in the winter.

  110. Bret The Hitman October 26th, 2013 at 8:25 am

    Blake,

    It may be an insignificant factor though. Were all immune systems of tested guinea pigs equal?

  111. jmills October 26th, 2013 at 8:26 am

    I feed my F1 car the best things god can imagine.

  112. blake October 26th, 2013 at 8:31 am

    Bret,
    My point was that the amounts of mercury in a flu shot aren’t significant and when you put them in perspective to the amount you get naturally it really is pretty negligible.

    Same with amalgam filling…..I would tell people to run if any dentist tells them they need to get all their silver fillings taken out because the guy is likely after your wallet……because #1 there is absolutely zero actual evidence that the amounts of mercury are harmful and are well below the WHO limits for even the lowest end of toxicity #2 any mercury released after the material is set is actually more likely to be released when you drill the stuff out! And #3 there are no long range studies on the biocompatibility of the composite resin material it’s replaced with……

  113. jmills October 26th, 2013 at 8:32 am

    Winter kicks the crap out of us until we let our guard down, and due to this sudden negative disposition, we get sick, leaving calling Naomi Watts for help, the only proper thing to do :D

  114. Bret The Hitman October 26th, 2013 at 8:33 am

    And I pose that question here because we are studying immunity here and shouldn’t get distracted too much by measuring temperature changes.

    Does temperature have a proven effect on immunity. Do you catch a cold in the cold? Ask the Inuit or the Canuck. This question reminds me of the myth that fat makes you fat.

    Vitamin D has proven effect on immunity. It regulates T-lymphocyte activation, triggering those immune cells to wake up and fight the foreign invaders, whether harmful viruses or hostile bacteria species.

    blake, I’m with you buddy, I never encouraged the removal of amalgam fillings. I loved working with the stuff. You’d see these great 4 surface mercury fillings that were fifty years old. I did some great pin build ups.

    1) Guinea pigs don’t sneeze

    2) Proximity amongst guinea pigs differs from typical shared spaces between humans

    There are probably more if I take the time to think about it.

    The study does nothing for me. It wreaks of industry bias.

    The trick with putting in mercury amalgam, is to condense the heck out of it, remove the weak surface residue, and massage your wrist after you’re done the whole affair.

    Austin, forget the radio thing, I’ll ask Donna Mills if she can visit instead.

  124. mick October 26th, 2013 at 8:45 am

    So these ticket prices are for the rich season ticket holders?
    What about the peons or masses that are the ones complaining about being priced out of the 3-4 games they’d like to attend?
    MTU said this smells like Levine. He might be right…

    It’s sort of like being a member of a club or a family you no longer can stomach.
    What do you do>

    Wait for it to implode? That could be a long wait.
    Start a new club, maybe your own? That could be impractical.
    It’s between a rock and a hard place, right MTU.
    Maybe he has found the answer….

  125. joeman October 26th, 2013 at 8:48 am

    been to many games but I can’t remember the last time I paid for a ticket..I will visit the Field MVP Club Lounge at some point

    If you have a P.O. Box I will send you this book and get you on the natural medicine kick. You’ll be a full-fledged retro Asheville hippy before you finish it.

    Hey, mick, I heard Murray head’s, ” say it ain’t so Joe ” on early morning cbc radio yesterday and wanted to pass the suggestion along to you. Its been years since I heard it, and quite frankly, with all this mercury poisoning, I’d forgotten about it.

  128. blake October 26th, 2013 at 8:49 am

    Bret ,
    I grew up really close to Asheville so I know all about the hippiness ;). I like to visit it

    Jmills,

    Yup :)

  130. blake October 26th, 2013 at 8:51 am

    Actually I’m in Asheville fairly often so maybe we can catch a Tourists game or something sometime and you can tells all about it

  131. jmills October 26th, 2013 at 8:51 am

    Joe, be nice today, we can have a little Orr love in, but no talk about another sux victory, ok? I was more than content when they had 2 less to show for it than me.

  132. Bret The Hitman October 26th, 2013 at 8:56 am

    Oh gawd Blake you don’t want me to have your ear. Your wife will hate me because you’ll turn Asheville-weird and relocate the family and start talking about chakras and energy fields and crap.

    :lol:

    I’m definitely down for a game sometime in all seriousness.

    blake-

    i read the kind of info that both you and brett are providing, and then make the best decision i can. i think everyone needs to do a similar thing. you simply can’t trust anyone source completely.

    i do not trust the the medical community because of the simple fact that doctors don’t even take one class in nutrition ,but if i break a leg i’m heading to the nearest emergency room.

    doctors are so wedded to the pharmaceutical industry that they can’t be trusted completely. the pharmaceutical industry is not about health , but about profits. their incentive is not your heath. if you believe they are , you are extremely naive.

    that said, you can run into the same problems trying to find non GMOs , organic food, and healthy supplements. people there are motivated by the profit motive just like they do in the pharmaceutical industry and the medical community.

    in short, each individual has to take control of their own health. use whatever works. personally, i try to eat no GMOs, all organic, and take no pharmaceuticals. i read a lot, and what i do is always being updated.

    i think one of the most important things is simply being able to feel your own health, to know when you are going in the right or wrong direction. i may just have been lucky , but since i’ve spent nothing on pharmaceuticals or medical care for the past 30 years or so and a lot on quality food and supplements the world would be very different if everyone took my approach.

    i had to get health insurance because of the mass health care rules 5 years ago, but i never had health insurance before that. my primary health care plan is really simple. don’t get sick :)

    Have you had a blood test ever for cholesterol or high sugar?
    what about your blood pressure?
    do you ever have these things checked?

    Hey I’m open minded….and we almost moved to Asheville once …..it’s a really neat place . You should spend some time in Boone and blowing rock too because it’s full of hippies as well

  140. jmills October 26th, 2013 at 9:07 am

    Osteopaths I can handle. I had a chiriropractic acquaintance who would snap your neck while spewing about pharmaceuticals. The guy wanted all the acknowledgement of traditional medical communities, yet, he didn’t even keep charts! He just kept playing horrible new age music. Up here, chiropractors don’t obtain their degree at a university. They have a separate building on Bayview Avenue.

    Randy,
    Agreed….I think there is a place for it all and the key is finding the balance that works for you.

    Believe me I see patients all the time who have medical histories and medication lists that need a table of contents…..it’s incredibly complex to sort through and I do often wonder if they are all necessary and if the interactions between them are considered …..because at the rate new drugs are developed there is just no way to have long term data on all of this stuff …..

    with three friends i opened a organic/natural foods store near the university of connecticut called Sufferin Succatash in 1971. it had a big yin/yang whole earth sign with all kinds off sprouts coming out of it. we totally went broke in a year or so, but it was a greater starter business experience , and i’ve been into eating heathy since then.

    Oct. 17, 2013 – New written consent requirements for telemarketing calls went into effect on October 16, 2013, with the Federal Communication Commission (FCC). Absent a prior written consent with signature of the recipient, if your office telephone system has the “capability” of automatically randomly or sequentially dialing, fines of up to $1,500 can be imposed for each live or prerecorded call or text message soliciting the purchase of goods or services made to a cell phone, whether or not the automatic random or sequential dialing feature is used.

    ===============================
    How can we enforce this?

    “I think there is a place for it all and the key is finding the balance that works for you.”

    blake-

    well said. when each individual takes the responsibility for their health then everything available is open to them. but they have to spend a lot of time learning about health and deciding what to do.
    most people don’t want to take that responsibility. they just ask a doctor what to do and do it.

    at a time around 200, i was playing serious golf and taking a lot of supplements to help in a sports performance way, the golf pro at my home course in sarasota after watching me routinely hit 320 yard drives at age 50 asked me to give him a list of what supplements i took. then he said, no, just go buy me everything you take, and i’ll reimburse you.

    i tried to explain to him that i was taking things specifically for me and that i’d give him a few books to read so he could come up to speed on what he should decide to take for himself. he didn’t like that idea at all,and i ended up giving him some no brainer basic things to take, but it never took hold with him.

    one thing i did to help with at that course was that all kinds of players would routinely take ibuprofen and drink alcohol as their after golf evening routine. i pointed out that was a recipe for liver damage.
    of course if they had read the label they would have known that :)

    people do a lot of crazy things with over the counter pain relievers.

    Speaking of toxicity, this place will erupt if another “bad” trade goes down.
    There is an underlying current of hatred that should be eliminated and can be if
    certain parties recognize that superiority and condescension best suits the World Wrestling Federation and not a Yankee blog.

    It’s hard to deny that the juices get flowing when a “bad” trade goes down and the blog hits go up but this other stuff is hard to swallow.

    If it continues and the quality of life here deteriorates any further I will be forced to take hiatus until it improves. To some , this would give them cause to further inflame here, as it is their goal to drive away those they disagree with.
