The Phillies and Mets, two former top teams of baseball’s NL East division, and steady attendance draw with fans, have become so irrelevant that the deal website Goldstar is offering a daily deal for up to 50% off of tickets for the July 3rd game between the two rivals at Citi Field, which even features a post game fireworks display. The deal (below) makes mention of the Phillies star players Cliff Lee, Cole Hamels, Chooch, and JUAN PIERRE ?!?!?  Dear God, if you let me have a few more of these in my lifetime, I promise to step selling bath salts to the kid next door.

In a related story, local minor league team the Camden River Sharks signed former Phillies third basemen Pedro Feliz. Feliz was a member of the Phillies 2008 championship team and will best be remembered for batting home Eric Bruntlett for the winning run in Game 5 of the World Series against Tampa. We applaud this signing and hope for the best for the man whose name in English translates to “Peter Happy.” There was one other piece of River Shark news that had us scratching our heads. The team had to cancel their game this past Thursday evening because the City’s water supply had run out. WTF? Message to the River Sharks: Your stadium sits in between the Delaware River and the Camden Aquarium. Figure some shit out!

Tuesday, Jul. 3 @ 7:10pmSee America’s national pastime live at Citi Field the night before Independence Day as the Mets host their divisional rivals, the Philadelphia Phillies, in a game followed by a spectacular fireworks display. Third baseman David Wright has led the Mets’ offense with a great season, and their pitchers have been even more impressive: veteran knuckleballer R.A. Dickey is a top Cy Young Award contender, while Johan Santana pitched the first no-hitter in franchise history. The Phillies have dealt with numerous injuries this year, but they’re always a dangerous opponent, with a pitching rotation led by Cole Hamels and Cliff Lee, and strong hitting from catcher Carlos Ruiz and veteran leadoff man Juan Pierre. Caesars Box tickets include vouchers good for a burger or hot dog, French fries, and fountain soda at the game.
