    Here's the dilemma.

    I'm going to drive to either Baltimore or Philadelphia tomorrow, walk up to the window and get the best available seat.

    Clearly, one game's better than the other. But the dilemma, of course, is would I rather watch the Phils-Yanks from some 600-level seating or the Marlins-Orioles possibly from low behind the plate?

    P.S. I'm not above looking for some decent-prized tickets on the street. It would still be better than the way ticket brokers rip us off.

    Yabkees-Phillies. Two historic franchises, marquee players ... why not. But that's just me.

    I voted for Orioles-Marlins.

    I'm a big believer in getting the best seat possible....I think you go to the ballpark for two reasons: the overall experience of being at a game and the chance to see the game from views you don't normally get from TV. Being closer only enhances both. Additionally, the Balt-Marlins game offers an intriguing pitching matchup in Cabrera-Willis, two guys who have the potential to be perennial all-stars and are fun to watch.

    Plus, in Baltimore, you're not actually looking directly at the root of all evil.

    So there's that.

    And with Baltimore, you have Camden Yards and you can get crab cakes before, after or during the game.

    I say Baltimore. I really like that stadium and the surrounding area.

    Don't forget Boog's barbecue. And hit Fells Point after the game.

    This is a toss-up. Baltimore has an intriguing pitching match up, plus wonderful eats and shopping. If you go to Philly, you get the opportunity to root against evil.

    Okay let me go ahead and say it. Balmer natives and O's fans, cover your ears. Here goes:

    Boog's barbeque SUCKS ASS. I got a pulled pork platter during the sixth inning of a game I went to a month ago or so. The pork tasted like bones, the beans tasted and looked like store-brand canned chili and the slaw was warm and without any zing or for that matter purpose, making it the highlight of the meal because it wasn't outwardly godawful. Maybe I got them on a bad day, but never have I been more dissapointed in ballpark food than that meal.

    Yanks-Phils. Not many times in life you get a chance to see the Bombers.

    Have you been to both stadiums before?
  12. Last time I ate Boog's BBQ, I found a band-aid in my sammich. That was about 8 years ago.

    That said, go to Marlins-O's. Two entertaining teams that you don't get to watch on ESPN 5 nights a week.
