Will you see empties behind home plate?

COO Lonn Trost is hopeful the Legends seats behind home plate –- which were an eyesore on TV -- are less of an issue this season, because the prices have been cut in half in most cases from $2,500 to $1,250.

Trost -- who I spoke to at the Yuri Foreman-Miguel Cotto presser -- said that the fans in those seats have access to restaurants and other amenities, so many times the seats belong to someone in the stadium even if they are not in the seat.

He could not say for sure if you will see empties behind home plate or not, but he was optimistic the situation will be better.

Trost is also interested to see what type of impact the old stadium being torn down will have on the wind stream to right field.

We solve the Winter Classic conundrum

The Yankees are in discussions with the NHL about bringing the Winter Classic to the Bronx, but a holdup has been all three local teams wanting to be involved.

Since we at ESPNNewYork.com are interested in solving the world's problems (as well as in pageviews), we suggested to Yanks COO Lonn Trost, why not a doubleheader?

“It has been suggested,” said Trost, adding that part is all in the NHL’s hands.

OK, so somebody else thought of it first, but if it happens, at least, give us some props.
