So it's come to this...
This weekend, partial season ticket holders got phone calls from the Mets ticket office. As a sign of their gratitude, they are offering us two free tickets to any remaining home game.
Field level seats at that.
So now, after effectively banning us from the field level restaurants and vantage points for two years, the Mets are giving us two tickets to get down to the front row.
I'll definitely be taking my kids now to the stadium...something I held off on doing all year due to schedules and ticket costs. Usually we go to at least one day game but there were not too many that we could make. And I am not about to pay Citi Field ticket prices for a night game, as my youngest wouldn't make it through the 5th inning.
But how bad is this team -- and the ticket situation at Citi Field -- if the Mets have to dump seats. What will the Mets offer plan holders as an incentive to renew? (Hint: it won't be the promise of a championship team in 2011).
