— Days Without Shea —

To recap the week:

- Monday night, it rained. Sandy Alderson actually went on the field before game time and sought to have the game called. No dice. The Mets lost to the Marlins.

- Tuesday night, it didn't rain. The Mets called the game at 5:30 and gave ticket holders a rain check for a rescheduled game on July 18.

- Wednesday. It rained. Alot. All day. And so the Mets played the Nationals, often in a driving rainstorm as puddles collected on the pitcher's mound and in the outfield. The Mets won 3-0 thanks to a great pitching performance by Jon Niese.

But few fans showed up, including us Loge13 whimps, who preferred to stay indoors when the forecast called for several inches of rain and severe flooding.

The Mets decided to recognize the weather by offering an extra game to fans holding tickets - used or unused - for May 18th.

Problem is, the tickets they are offering are for Monday, May 30th, Memorial Day night, vs the Pirates. Anyone who bought the 15-game plan, which included the 5/18 Mets-Nats game, already has the 5/30 game as part of their ticket plan.

This is one of the reasons why it just "Does Not Pay" to be any type of plan holder any more. Seems this organisation sticks it to you time and time again.
You guys show faith, lay out a good deal of money, well in advance, only to be taken advantage of.
As long as this ownership is in control, the faithful fans will be at their mercy.
One thing is for sure this year at $iti Field, The plan holders are ALL stuck with tickets to "MEANINGLESS GAMES"!

I know a full season ticket holder who has been invited to take batting practice with the Mets. Not watch batting practice...TAKE batting practice. By September, some fans may even get to play second base as part of their plan.

there are plenty of things to blame the mets for but can't blame them for the weather. it was a played game and they are giving tickets to an extra game, pretty good deal if you ask me.
