Going to Yankee Stadium this Sunday...

My friend wanted to get tickets to see the O's this week, but he was busy, so we are going up for the last year of Yankee Stadium to see them play the Angels this Sunday.

Its a 1:05 start time and we figured to get in the area 3 or so hours before game time. I was just wondering if anyone knows about parking (location, cost, etc) and maybe some restaurants/places to see around the stadium. Thanks a ton.

I was just there last night. Depending on where you are coming from, I would take the subway. It'll be crowded, but it's cheap and easy.

Also, there is not much around the stadium to see/do before hand unless you are planning on seeing Monument Park but I would look into that and make sure you don't need to make an appointment to see it because that was the impression I got when I was there. I was unable to see it.

Apparently, Arthur Ave. is the place to go for before-hand food, but it's far from the stadium. If you are driving, it might be a good place to check out. As for places to eat around the stadium, there isn't much, but the Yankee Tavern looked like a decent spot if you can get there early enough before the crowds.

I went last night as well and wanted to go to Monument Park. They say its open from 5:05 until 6:20. We got into the stadium as soon as the gates opened and by the time we got to the line for it, it was already closed b/c the line extended to the upper deck.

Their is a McDonald's on the corner :)

Parking is probably 10-20 bucks. I haven't drove there in like 5 years. I am sure someone has driven their recently to give you the parking prices now.

I'm going to that game too. This will be my first trip to Yankee stadium. We are taking the subway in since that's probably the easiest way to get there.

Yeah this will be my first trip also, I'm really looking forward to it. And the more I look at the options, the subway seems to be the most viable one as it does drop you right off at the stadium. Now its just finding where to park to catch the subway.

The subway was convienent, for sure... BUT... It was the most uncomfortable ride of my life! It was completely packed and people just continued to push their way on at each stop to the point that the doors would not close b/c they were leaning on them. I had no place to hold and am fairly certain about 5 other people held onto me (not to mention the lady who rested her chin on my arm).

Thats the beauty of NYC, baby. The same thing happened to us on the way back from the game too. And no one got off the train until the 59th Street/Columbus Ciricle stop too! That's like a twenty minute ride!

I don't think you want to be holding on to anything.

    • I wonder if this guy could be a second pitching addition for us.   Seems like he might make a good long reliever/spot starter. https://www.mlbtraderumors.com/2022/12/npbs-hanshin-tigers-post-shintaro-fujinami.html  
    • I wimped out and said 120-139.  I really want the answer to be 140-159.   But I’m guessing the cap will be right around 140 or just under.   One factor could be how many pitches Grayson is throwing to get through these innings.  In his pre-injury outings, he was cruising along at 14.9 pitches per inning.   Those are very low stress innings.  But if Grayson finds himself throwing 18 pitches per inning next year in the majors, that’s a different ballgame.  
    • A little short on job title, but as a grateful longtime reader from back in the day, noticed this in Szymborski's chat today. SEA is one of those teams gotta fight past for AL top 6 in the shorter term. 1:06 Josh R: Noticed this in a transactions list :                                      Mariners Named Dave Cameron senior director, player procurement,                                                 Is this the former FanGraphs Dave Cameron?     1:06  Dan Szymborski: Yes     1:06  Dan Szymborski: (Sorry, was making sure he made it official or I couldn’t say anything)     1:06  Dan Szymborski:     Dave Cameron @OneDaveCameron     I should probably mention this now that it’s official. I get to do some really cool stuff for the @Mariners going forward. Quite a journey from @ussmariner (or asbs-m for us extra old people) to now. I couldn’t be more excited. Sincere thank you to all.
    • It'll be a bad year if the team's competitive situation doesn't put Elias or whoever to a possibly tough decision here. "Controlling the competitive environment" only gets publicized as a virtue for teams doing the stuff of Elias' first four years.     Teams like the Dodgers and Astros earn that privilege with their excellence - these Orioles aren't there yet. Grayson should pitch the 3rd or 4th game of the year, and pitch as well as he can for 20-ish turns.    Then see where we are.     Maybe we trade him then for Burnes and Woodruff and Devin Williams, Milwaukee can let him rest up for next year.
    • Its certainly possible Gunnar's home is shortstop.     The Orioles aren't going to say openly if they have intellectual capital like the cumulative wear and tear of manning SS is known precisely enough it'd be an inefficient use of Gunnar's joints (Royce Lewis' have taken some bumps), and that's why he didn't get to have an everyday SS job in the minor leagues. But they have to play somebody in the major leagues regularly next season, so any developmental guardrails will have to be taken off.     MLB teams seldom platoon shortstops - for me they are like quarterbacks, if you have two, you have none. I'm still on the Occam's razor of shortstops play shortstop (watching you Jackson Holliday in 2023), and almost every pro caliber position player on their Little League, high school, and A-ball teams is the shortstop.   They can't all be Cal Ripken or Ozzie Smith even though the confidence helping them to the Show tells them they probably are. Holliday and Carter Young will probably be teammates for some of 2023 - could be like the Westburg and Gunnar show all over again.
    • I certainly agree that if he follows typical patterns, he’ll have to do most of his damage in the first 4-5 years.   And as I said already, he would have to stay relatively healthy.  That’s often the problem with guys who decline steeply in the back half of their careers.  Judge has only had three fully healthy seasons.
