I thought this would be interesting in light of the suggestion in the other thread that baseball stadiums should stop selling beer. I might be in favor of limiting how many beers can be sold to a fan -- maybe have a device to scan your ticket and you can't purchase more than two or three.

1. You must be independently wealthy.

2. I hope someone else was driving!

My wife was driving. Actually nobody drives. When I go to Camden Yards we usually get a hotel room.

I'm not that wealthy. My wife and I both work. I like to have some fun. 7 beers is only around 40 bucks.

You would have to have a poll for it to be anonymous, but I will bite. I am changing my answer to professional baseball game, since I go to more Giants games because I live on that side of the country.

I have on average 5/20oz or 22 oz, forget. I also dont cause problems, and I take the Caltrain home.

I am serious. It was all for me.

I am with you. I can pack the beers down as well and not be a blubbering fool. They probably go down a bit quicker for me at the game than anywhere else. Dont want people dropping stuff in it or getting knocked over. So I hold on to it and drink it.

There is a poll, it just didn't get posted until a minute or two after the OP. Nothing I can do about that.

I have no more than two beers, for two reasons: (1) I'm usually driving from DC, and (2) I'm at the age where if I have more than two beers, I feel crummy the next morning. It used to take about 10 beers for me to feel it the next day, back when I was in my 20's, but unfortunately those days are long gone.

I usually will have 4 or 5 if I'm with my buddy, only 2 or 3 if I'm with my son. We get there

well before the game starts, and are there right to the end, so there is usually a substantial

amount of time to consume them! I don't cause any problems, I'm a pretty mellow guy that

just loves the combination of beer and baseball! And no, I don't drive (we too have a local

hotel room).

If we are going to count Pickles pre-game the choices are going to need to be bumped up or the data set will be skewed.

No, I'm not counting Pickles. Stadium vendors can't monitor what you had to drink before you enter the stadium, so that's irrelevant to the idea of limiting in-game consumption.

    • Yeah I know, I was referring to this blurb in MLBTR: I was just saying that once there was a lawsuit at all, I'm sure MLB was looking to get him out of the game.
    • Listen … I realize the game was never in jeopardy. But, you got exactly from this guy what his recent performance.    I’m shocked Elias and Hyde would waste time on these types of guys. Not much different that the guy… Ramirez I think that they picked up and then released earlier this season. We didn’t give up anything substantial and the must love him.    
    • Well, I already addressed that in my just-now comment, but when you know a guy is terrible, AND you know he’s not going more then an inning ANYWAY, you have another guy ready immediately.   There was nothing to learn, btw. He’s bad. Maybe he’s fine for the Rockies or White Sox, but not for a team looking at 100+ wins.  
    • You know he lost the discrimination case years ago, right?   There was no settlement.  The lawsuit was dismissed by the court for lack of merit.  
    • Chances are one of the reasons they can even think about the wildcard is because of their bullpen.  I doubt they weaken that looking for offense.  The first obvious move is to call up uber prospect James Wood who’s tearing up AAA.   If they truly are thinking wildcard they won’t subtract to add.  They’ll just add.
    • With respect, I totally disagree. Experience isn’t just what you’ve done, its what you haven’t done when given an opportunity. Looking at his body of work, it is littered with failed opportunity. there was literally nothing to suggest Viera would suddenly be other then he has been, and he wasn’t. As I said, it would have been fine to DFA him, stick him in the minors after he cleared waivers, and experiment a bit. And if he gets claimed, who cares, because he’s not the main part of the trade. And it wasn’t just adding Viera and his career -.3 WaR, but subtracting  Vespi, who in very limited MLB experience (35 innings) has a .3 WAR. Viera has 51 MLB innings(22 this season) with a career 1.7 WHIP, and 1.9 WHIP this season. There’s no reason to expect anything other than he did. So, you da man, Frobby, but we’re voting different parties on this one. Adding Viera quite literally made the bullpen worse, and probably was a huge slap in Vespi’s face to boot.
