Now unlike Chicago - bleachers in the Northeast have always been the cheapest seats and NYY is now charging $20 and $12 for 2012 - up from $15 and $5 last year. (The $5 seats only see 50% of the field) because of the sportsbar.

Isn't that still less than what the White Sox charge?

Considerably less. I don't know off the top of my head but I know the Yankees series bleacher tickets at The Cell were around $45-50 each.

Man, I wish our bleachers were that cheap. And I'd love if the Sox didn't charge full-price for the few seats obstructed by the batter's eye.

I pretty much only buy bleacher seats at the new Yankee Stadium. Then I move around for a better seat.

Bleacher seats are no bargin at Target Field either.
