Sports Comments of the Day - December 23, 2023

  •  I am not heartbroken that Yamamoto did not sign with the Mets.  There is no guarantee that a player making big bucks will become a superstar.  Any athlete may develop injuries and not be able to play.  There are players like Stephen Strasburg who had to retire early from injuries and were paid big bucks as the team had to honor the contract.  Others like Jason Bay just did not perform as they did in the past.
  • The ticket prices at Madison Square Garden are outrageous.  For afternoon games on December 23 and Christmas Day, the price was over $200/per ticket to sit in the 200 level,  The prices for an MLK Day matinee were more reasonable. Ticket prices for the Brooklyn Nets at Barclays Center are much cheaper.
  • I don't like it when sports talk hosts on WFAN and ESPN radio gab about non-sports issues.  This is more likely to happen when there are two or three hosts.  A single host will concentrate on sports and spend more time with callers.  The last time I phoned a sports talk show was in the early 1980s when I called Art Rust Jr. on WABC.
