Question about getting to Petco

Hey guys:

I'm going to try and attend a game or two in mid July, and I haven't been since 2006. I have a couple of questions about getting to Petco. I will be coming from North County. I once parked and took the trolley from (Mission Valley?), but it turned out to be more trouble than it was worth. I live in Boston now, so I am used to semi-expensive parking. $15-$20 is pretty normal. $30 and I get kinda cranky, but might still do it. Is there a lot around the park that is in line with this?

What do most people do to get to the game from North County? Any other tips on how early to arrive to get a spot, etc?

Thanks for any help.
