HANG IN THERE METS FANS, METS-SANITY IS ON THE WAY

Really not much Mets stuff to talk about, we’ve already covered Johan Santana and his left arm, the new dimensions of the outfield walls at Citi Field and Daniel Murphy playing 2nd base.

We’ve discussed Sandy Alderson on Twitter (@MetsGM), the schedule for Mets bobble head days (no Kranepool bobbler though, sad!) We talked about the pessimistic/optimistic Mets fan, ticket packages, Ike Davis ankle, David Wright’s back and Lucas Duda outfield prowess.

We’ve learned that Josh Lewin will be Howie Rose’s tag team partner in the Mets radio booth, and that John Franco (not Edgardo Alfonzo) will be inducted into the Mets Hall of Fame. The new/old uniforms are back, that’s been discussed and of course the financial state of the Skill Sets and the club has been expounded upon by experts and those who have trouble making change for a dollar.

Just think we’ve discussed, debated and beaten to death these and other subjects about our beloved Metsies even while Super Bowls were won, hockey team looking like Cup Champs and a kid from Harvard has stolen the heart of hoops fans of NYC.

The manager, coaches and many players are in camp. Dispatches with the address Pt. St. Lucie are now showing up on the fish wraps, soon SNY will transmit pictures and sounds of our heroes in action and not a moment too soon as me thinks some of the fan base needs a baseball fix badddddddly.

WHO NEEDS 2? NY METS SINGLE GAME TIX GO ON SALE MARCH 5TH

 

News from the Mets today as single game tickets for all games at Citi Field will go on sale Monday March 5th at 10AM on Mets.com and at (718) 507-TIXX.

Tomorrow the Mets will put on sale three news ticket packages at 10AM on Mets.com and at (718) 507-TIXX.  Here are the details of these packages:

6-Game Marquee Flex Pack

Fans can secure tickets to Opening Day (April 5) or one of the Subway Series games at Citi Field (June 22-24) before individual game tickets go on sale.  Choose Opening Day or one of the Subway Series games at the regular price, then select five other games at a savings off the established box office price.

6-Game Value Flex Pack

The price of a ticket in this pack starts at $9 per game or $54 per pack for any six games other than Opening Day or the Subway Series. Quantities are limited with availability in select sections of Baseline Box, Caesars Box, and Promenade Reserved seating categories.

Mr. Met Dash Pack

For three or more Mr. Met Dash games, every regularly priced adult ticket purchased through this special pack can add up to three children 12 and under for $10 each per game.  Kids can run the bases after the game during the Mr. Met Dash on the following Sundays: April 22, May 6, June 17, July 8, August 12, and August 26.

Last week, the Mets launched the Banner Day Pack to mark the return of the longtime Mets tradition on Sunday, May 27 against the San Diego Padres.  The five-game pack starts at $50 and also includes games against the San Francisco Giants (Saturday, April 21), Cincinnati Reds (Friday, June 15) and Miami Marlins (Thursday, August 9 and Friday, September 21).

SATURDAY MUSINGS

Well the honeymoon between me and the Mets have hit its first rocky spot.  I don’t know whose ideas this was but it was beyond bad.  Instead of making lame video’s mocking BREAKING NEWS on SNY (please Kevin Burkhardt, tell me there was a rifle pointed at you as the reason you agreed to do this commercial) how about lowering the price of tickets and making some different ticket packages with decent discounts as a way to sell tickets. Oh even better , show a video of construction workers taking out the seats behind the plate that no one sits in and replacing them with a nice hard plastic seat, the kind YOUR REAL FAN BASE likes to park it’s ass in.

2yrs/$8mil for Pedro Feliciano? Congrats to you Perpetual Pedro for committing that heist.  Pee Wee Cashman has been exposed so far this off season, proving his can only strength as a GM is throwing stupid money at players. If I’m Andy Petitte, I ask for $30 Mil and a private plane that brings me home after my start and back again a day before my next one , odds are Pee Wee will give in.

I can’t believe I didn’t mention this week that the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame finally got two things right. First, they finally voted Darlene Love into the Hall, an honor that was waaaaaaaaaayyyyyyy overdue, then they denied Bon Jovi induction honors. That dreck that Bon Jovi spews is NOT Rock and Roll.

R.I.P. Don Van Vilet a/k/a Captain Beefheart

Let’s hope that Ollie Perez keeps up his sucky ways and gets his overdue release.

Can we please close the chapter of the Omar Minaya era. There is no need to give him a job in the organization just cut the check. The new administration talks about not being hamstrung in releasing people who are owed money, so prove it Omar, OP and Castillo need to go.

HEAD OUT TO MADISON SQUARE PARK NEXT WEEKEND FOR THE DELTA DUGOUT FAN FEST

Next weekend in preparation for the Subway Series games at Highlander Park, Delta Airline will have a Fan Fest at Madison Square Park in Manhattan called The Delta Dugout. The event will run from June 18th to June 20th. Here are some of the details:

The Delta Dugout will host current and former Mets and Yankees players — including a special musical performance from Yankees’ legend Bernie Williams — Wii Batting and fast pitch stations, a photo booth, giveaways, and an array of games for kids.  Fans will enjoy stadium-style concessions and specialty food and beverages, including “The Delta Dugout Dog,” a limited edition hot dog to be featured at Madison Square Park’s Shake Shack throughout the weekend.  Fans will also view New York baseball highlight reels, NY baseball fun facts and live game coverage of the interleague series on a Jumbotron at the center of the park.

Throughout the three-day event, The Delta Dugout will offer major league giveaways, including ticket packages to Mets and Yankees games, special ballgame events and round-trip domestic and international tickets on Delta.  Additionally, Delta will host the Sky360 Lounge, where it will display elements of its premium BusinessElite in-flight experience, including lie-flat seats and information on its award-winning culinary offerings

Sounds like a fun time for both sets of fans,

Madison Square Park is located in the Flatiron District, between Fifth and Madison Avenues and 23rd and 26th Streets, just 8 blocks south of the Empire State Building. To get there by subway, take the R, W or 6 train to 23rd Street. On weekends only you can also take the N train to 23rd street.

WINTER IS OFFICIALLY OVER………..

Because I just bought ticks for Opening Day, Mets-Marlins April 5th at $iti Field.

Now as ecstatic as I am to have gotten tickets via the Mets.com early ticket sale offer, I’m surprised how fast I got the tix.

The pre-sale tickets started at 10AM but I had to go out and do my off day errands and did not get home until 12PM. I figured no way any opening day ticket would be available but I was very happy to see that date still available.

After I made my purchase, I started thinking about past seasons when you could never just log in and buy opening day tickets, those tickets were always held back as part of ticket packages or not released until the very last minute.

Now is that a good thing or a bad thing?  Does it say how much the fan base has soured on the team and the organization that OPENING DAY is not the hot ticket it’s been the past few years ?

Maybe it’s the cold slap in the face the Skill Sets need that guys like me and the other hardcore Mets fans are few and far between. Maybe this will send the message that you just can’t open the gates to $it Field and the congregation will come a runnin’

They got me and they will always have me no matter how bad a team they put on the field and no matter how much they treat me like a leper at the ball park.  Maybe that makes me a big Jack Ass, I won’t argue but instead of calling me a Jack Ass just call me METLE!
