— Days Without Shea —

The New York Mets and the SIPC trustee overseeing the wind-down of Bernie Madoff's firm cut a deal to sell the fraudster's season tickets at CIti Field.

Madoff's firm owns two season tickets in Citi Field's Delta Club Platinum section in the second row behind home plate, which range from $295 to $695 each, depending on the game. Similar seats selling on eBay, however, are listed for up to twice the face value. The trustee, Irving H. Picard, says in bankruptcy court filings that the tickets have a total face value of $80,190.

In a deal reached with the Mets, Picard has exchanged the tickets for a pair of Delta Club Gold tickets, located a few rows back, which have a total face value of $60,750 and include access to the Delta Sky360 Club and one free parking pass. The Mets will refund Picard the $19,440 price difference in the exchange.

On another subject, are you planning to change the name of your blog? Perhaps to your new seating section? At the very least, you need to drop "the last days of Shea."

I decided to keep the same name. I probably should lose the tagline but I have been told I have issues with letting go. I also have issues with Photoshop.
