Bumpwatch 2009: Citifield

It was only a matter of time, but indeed the Metropolitans have sold out. Citigroup, a company that houses two gleaming skyscrapers within site of Flushing, Queens has agreed to a nearly $20 million annual deal for the naming rights of the new Mets Stadium which will henceforth be known at Citifield, slated to open in time for the 2009 season. The twenty year deal (with options to extend the partnership up to thirty-five years) will be announced at the official ground breaking ceremony on Monday.

Somehow I doubt the Yankees will sell their soul and instead will forgo a naming rights bidding war. Then again, when serious cash is up for grabs, anything can happen...
