    Pictures?? I doubt we'll see much... most of the Yankee fans have disappeared from this site in the last few weeks.

    Yes, a very nice addition. Does anyone know if it's there permanently or only opening day?

    May be permanent because there is no where else in the stadium that the 26 WS is displayed.

    Ditto.

    Back to the netting. I'm not a huge fan of the netting, but YES did a good job in making it less intrusive and they focused the camera in a way that the netting looked more transparent. They also seemed to work around it with more camera angles than in the Cubs series.

    What I do love is the incredible low angle of the camera, net or no net. It puts you right on the field.

    What I ment is when they ask him questions about how he used the bullpen. Jose Veras and Damaso Marte are two pitchers that have a history of being bad pitchers. I wonder why did he make one pitch after the other.

    This always happens early in a season....Managers give everyone a clean slate in the pen. Everyone gets their shot, and everyone proves their worth. When you inch towards all-star break you tend to see managers trust some guys more than others based on tendencies. If Dave Robertson pitches better than Veras and Coke consistantly....you can bet your behind he'll be the 7th inning guy unless he needs a day off. I still think Marte needs to be a left specialist only. He cant go 3+ batters.

    I hear ya, but I have to disagree about Marte and Veras. Marte's history shows him to be a very good relief pitcher, especially against lefties, and Veras is young and had a very good year last year as did most of the pen. As a matter of fact, the Yankee bullpen was an asset for them last year and one of the better, deeper ones in the game.

    I'm not happy with the outcome or how they are pitching thus far this year (particularly this game), but it's way too early, and there's not enough sample size to condemn them. If this keeps up, yeah, the Yanks better start looking for replacements.

    I hear all the announcers say the YS "facade", and yet I only see it called "frieze" on here.

    Which is correct?
    Thanks
    The correct term is FRIEZE. I have no idea why it is still referred to as a facade, because that is the completely wrong term. From dictionary.com:

    FACADE
    -noun
    1. The front of a building; esp., the principal front, having some architectural pretensions.
    2. the face or front of a building.

    I don't think this blatant mistake can ever be rectified, as I have heard many people refer to the frieze as a facade. It is obvious that the facade is the limestone on the outside of the stadium, and the frieze is an ornamental (albeit with less detail than the original) piece that rings the roof on the inside of the stadium.

    Nice park. The upper deck concourse kind of reminded me of Giants Stadium a little with how the steel and concrete goes over your head and the outside wall encloses you in.

    The Bathrooms were nice and large.

    Citi has better food, but the stuff at Yankee was more then adequate.

    The PA is a lot louder and better then at Citi.

    I think Citi is "warmer" with the brick and limestone vs the concrete and steel, but they're both good places to watch a ballgame.

    I just got back from the game and there were no pennants hanging from the frieze? the stadium is still amazing, though i don't like the national league flags on the poles. but it's not a big deal.

    I was sitting in section 237 right in front of the retired numbers on the outfield wall and yes, both the retired numbers and the championships are permanent.

    So Citi it's akin to most minor league parks and the typical brick and steel clones? Ooooo so cozy!

    What apologists and lemmings aren't saying is that a majority of that "coziness" is in the OF, where there is also severe obstructions of the field at the Pepsi Porch. The infield upper decks aren't very much different than Shea's. See nymdan's comparison.

    BTW, NYS is limestone not concrete. I think he was confusing the two.

    There is zero comparison between Citi and Shea's upper deck. Let's not get crazy here. In fact, NYS upper deck is probably more akin to Shea. Yeah, the Pepsi Porch is almost like the view from the rf deck in RYS, except it's not dangerously steep and has it's own concessions and nice clean bathrooms like 2 seconds away.

    I was so glad the Yankees decided to honor John Flaherty and 10 year New York Met Lee Mazzilli. (and no I am not serious, I am doing what Rob is doing to our citi field thread)

    And you're what, like 12 and also have trouble comprehending posts?

    Every single one of your posts in the Citi thread are mocking, or negative. Answer my question, why was Lee Mazzilli there? He spent 10 years as a New York Met, and played 37 yes 37 whole games as a Yankee. Maybe the Mets shoulda brought Mike Stanton in for the opening of Citi Field.

    I am going to NYS tomorrow.
    Hopefully i will take about 100 pics
    any request my seats are in the grandstand

    They are? Do a better search and then you'll find you're 100% wrong and will take issue with the true troll, Corey and not me (if you're an honest man).

    The Yanks paraded everyone out there good and bad, not that I was overly troubled with it. Are you assuming that your "dig" is bothersome? Ask Levine and Hank why, I haven't a clue.
