Otherwise, I think it's over an hour and a half.
Hmmm. I usually go PATH to 33rd, walk 1 block to 34th/Penn Station, then take the LIRR to Citi Field. with no delays it goes about 40-50 minutes.
Your way is definitely cheaper though, as LIRR is something like 8 bucks one way. I just can't stand all the stops on the 7, and coupled with having a beer on the train, the extra 5 bucks is worth it.
