Want to play at Shea? Well, just go away!

“It all sounds pretty cheap, especially from a franchise whose owner can't stop talking about his own days playing high school baseball in New York City.
New York City's taxpayers don't ask much of any of the city's sports franchises. Only that when their kids get a chance to play the biggest game of their lives, they get to play it on the biggest stage around.”
