      Kyle: Of course, this has nothing to do with the individual column’s topic. But it didn’t seem quite right to file it under, “Mitt Bama.”




      The Yankees aren’t done yet with trying to manipulate supply & demand, merely by getting tough with Stub Hub.

      Get ready. Monday, they buy the Baltimore Orioles franchise!

      Then announce all ticket prices for Oriole home games against the Yanks will cost the same as the Yanks-Orioles games in the Bronx.

      No more of this unimpeded interstate commence – with thousands of priced-out Yankee fans watching their team play in Baltimore for 15% of the cost of parking their cars outside Yankee stadium (& then, tapped out, being forced to hang out in the garage with the radio on, listening to the game).

      Unintended Result: I-95 toll revenues collapse. Treasury Department forced to make up the shortfall by denying congressional requests for Hurricane Sandy relief funds.

      Yankee fans unable to repair their homes without federal relief are forced to move into the Yankee parking garages.
