    Can I ask why?

    To be fair, Beej, he is letting you buy it from him.


    Buy back a piece of history, Mets fans!

    While everyone else in that story seems to be sad Shea is going, Jeff can't wait for it to get torn down so they can move into their shiny new stadium.

    That's the way it comes across to me, at least.

    And...he's a businessman. I'd rather them raze it in one day so I don't pay people to do it for three months too.

    Jesus. He doesn't owe everyone the opportunity to come in and take a piece of the park.

    As a Mets fan since their inception, I'm not at all sad to see Shea go.

    Funny how the dickhead who has been calling Shea a dump for a few years suddenly is nostalgic for the place because "L'il Jeffy" says the place is a dump.

    I, too, think it's odd. But I think as bad as some places are, I think as it comes to an end there comes a "Yeah, it was a dump. But it was our dump," sentiment that starts to grow.

    Hell, that might happen to Tropicana Field if and when the Rays get a new stadium approved.

    I know, GB. It happened in Cleveland with Municipal Stadium. What a shithole that place was.

    But you can't fault an owner who already has a new place next door trying to make sure shit gets done. The seats have been on sale for months, and they've barely sold half. It's not like nostalgia is running rampant.

    Wow, really? Are they going as overboard as the Yankees on prices, hence the lack of sales?

    Or are they waiting for a real bullpen to be assembled?
