And so we have an early indication of why Mark Teixeira chose the Yankees over the Orioles this offseason. Game 3 of the series today at Camden Yards: Good seats still available.
After a raucous capacity crowd booed the living daylights out of their wayward native son during Monday's opener, Orioles fans decided to pace themselves in Wednesday's second game by not showing up. I don't mean to be a pessimist, but the Yard was half full Wednesday, at 22,856, for their Game 2, 7-5 spanking of the Yanks. Of course, it was fun for Baltimore fans to sit at home and watch this graphic. If only the stock exchange would rise like that.
