Usually a Groupon for cheap Mets tickets causes us to make a bunch of cheap jokes at the team’s expense. But a funny thing has happened since they were 15 games under .500 at the beginning of the season and everything looked hopeless: the Mets remembered they were a baseball team.
Although it’s still barely worth it unless Matt Harvey is pitching
What do you get when you combine a team with low expectations from the start with a 17-24 record and two six game losing streaks? A whole lot of empty seats, if you’re the Mets. Which is a problem normally, and even more of a problem if you’re the money-hemorrhaging Wilpons. But, hey, don’t worry about that, worry instead about grabbing this Groupon for $9 Mets tickets. That’s cheaper than minor league tickets! (more…)
Praying is meaningless when Latroy Hawkins is in your bullpen. via Facebook
On your birthday, you expect the world. Well, at least if you haven’t accepted that it’s just a meaningless mile marker on the road to death. If you haven’t, you want things. Coincidentally, the Mets are desperate to fill their stadium. Combine the two, and you get the newest Mets offer this year: a free ticket on your birthday. One can only hope this is the only way Colin Cowgill returns to Citi Field. (more…)
Yesterday’s AWESOME 11-2 win over the Padres notwithstanding, the Mets…aren’t supposed to be very good this year. And that’s a polite way of saying it, a way that avoids phrases like “65 wins” and “goddamn disgrace.” But hey, want to know who’s supposed to be even worse than the Mets? The Miami Marlins, who could very well be run by modern-day robber barons, and could potentially finish sixth in the NL East even though there are only five teams. When a team full of minor leaguers plays a team fighting for third place at best in an expensive ballpark, the real winner is you, because the Mets have resorted to just giving tickets away! (more…)
You don’t have to go back to 1969 to find $10 mets tickets.
Those of us who get out to the ol’ ballgame a few times each year are happy to let the box-score clippers and fantasy baseball dweebs spend their stacks to sit behind home plate. Give us a beer, a dog, maybe a little sunshine … and how about some old-fashioned ticket prices? For atmosphere and affordability in our borough, baseball fans can’t beat a trip to see the Brooklyn Cyclones. Don’t give up on venturing out to a Yankees or Mets game either: you can get tickets to all the teams for less than $10. Here’s a Moneyball approach to spending a day in one of our rare parks without dog poop, even if you aren’t making that A-Rod money. (more…)
