Ticket Prices And The Cubs Sale

From ESPN.com, word that the Mets and Yankees are "looking at" the ticket prices that have left a ton of prime seats empty at a lot of NYC games.

Buried in that article:

[Bud Selig] also hopes the proposed sale of the Chicago Cubs from Tribune Co. to the Ricketts family can close within two months.

"I know they talked about June now, and I hope we can make that," Selig said.

So now it's June? What year? Also in that article, another quote from Selig:

"They're off to a very good attendance start. One team is averaging 44,000 -- the Yankees are at 44 -- and the Metsies are averaging 37,000," he said. "So it would be hard if I went to Pittsburgh or somewhere today and tell them, gee, you know, those two New York clubs are really struggling."

Please tell me he didn't really say "Metsies".
