“Welcome to Fenway Park South!” sneered WBAL’s Joe Angel during the final moments of the Orioles’ 6-3 loss to the Red Sox Friday night. “This is the 13th sellout of the year for the Orioles….and the home fans have done just that, sold out!. How do you think these Boston fans got their tickets?”
It is hard not to share Angel’s outrage. Those fair weather O’s rooters should at least wait until the team is 30 games out of first place before selling tickets on eBay. Seriously, if Angel is advocating that MLB segregate fans according to allegiances and/or limiting the number of tickets sold to visiting fans (much like they do for England’s professional soccer matches), he’ll have to explain to Jeffrey Loria why no one is going to see the Marlins anymore.
