Morning Photo: Yankee Stadium Is Still Empty

Here is a shot from the Rays/Yankees game last night from the fantastic Peter Abraham.

Is this a picture Yankee Stadium circa 2009 or Tropicana Field circa 2007?

Obviously there are a number of serious economic issues here, but never in my day did I expect the Yankees to have empty seats behind the dugout in the new Stadium. It's stunning to see pictures like this one.

I have been as aggressive as any with covering this, but know that the weather here was awful last night... cold, rainy, nasty. Add in a rain delay or two and you have many people who just said "screw it".

Um, Pete Abraham is basically the biggest piece of shit in the universe.

This iswhat happens when you charge between $300-$1000 for a seat to a baseball game. Not many people can afford to go anymore.
