Every few weeks, it seems, the Mets invite some journalists into Citi Field for a tour and a chance to get some good press. And every few weeks, journalists oblige.
The New York Times has yet another story today
about how great Citi Field is. Look, even Kranky old Kingman is getting somewhat excited...or at least very curious...for Citi Field. But reporters have to start doing some reporting, not recording.
Lets start with not calling Citi Field the Anti-Shea. The fact is, this stadium holds 15,000 less fans (a number glossed over in the opening grafs and never alluded to again). And ticket prices are higher. That means it will cost the average fan MORE money to go to a game and there will be less opportunities.
Instead we hear about the Acela Club, "a restaurant in left field that will have 550 seats, table service, a bar and wine cabinets for frequent patrons." Yeah because that is what real baseball fans go to games for: wine cabinets.
