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 guess we were watching a different outing. 
    • You try to sign long term Gunnar and GR.  Wait and see on the others. As for Adley?   I would not sign him to a long term contract.  I hate to say it because I love the guy but he just does not seem worth what he is going to ask for imo.
    • I am not worried about Means AS LONG AS HE IS HEALTHY.   Big if.  But he knows what he is doing getting ready for what him is his spring training.  If he does this his first 2 starts or so?    Then I worry.
    • I had never seen him in a live at bat until I saw him at his first spring training at bat this year.  And I mean his very first at bat.   He struck out swinging on like 4 pitches and being honest looked completely over matched.  I remember thinking....."hmmmm that seems odd for a guy so highly touted".   He just seemed like he had no idea what he was doing.   But then I never really saw another live at bat from him again all spring training and he ended up doing pretty well.  However every at bat I have seen of him since he got called up?  Looked like that first spring training at bat.  He looks like my wife trying to hit a major league fastball.  He has no idea what he is doing. I have never seen someone so good against minor league players and yet so bad against major league players.  Just a huge discrepancy.   Has to be psychological.   He looks completely intimidated. 
    • And who is this somebody other than Means or Flarerty that would help us in the playoffs. Also remember Bradish and Grod did not help us in the Playoffs. So I guess It was unwise to wait on those 2. Plus Bradish is hurt and uncertain going foward( a la Means) Yeah you piled on.
    • I will say I am surprised at how utterly useless/helpless JH looks after he got called up.   Not just surprised. Stunned is a better word. This is not an 7th round pick who struggled for years in the minors.   This is the #1 pick from 2 years ago who has dominated his entire life in the game of baseball. Yet he looks like a player in 8th grade playing against seniors in HS.  He can barely make any contact and even his fielding and throwing is very iffy. It is like he took up the game of baseball within the last year.   A complete novice.   This has to be mental because even the worst of the worst can make more contact than he is.  He is FLAILING.   No way that is all physical.    At this point you send him down.   No questions asked.   I was more than willing to let him get through this if he SHOWED ANY SIGNS of life.  But he just doesn't.   He looks pathetic.    Manny Machado he is not.   Send him down for at least 3 months.   Bring up Mayo.  Or anyone really.  It is better than what he is offering.
