BTW Mongoose, not to further derail this thread about "Citi Field Tickets and Concessions", but for a real glimpse into the Wilpons' view of the world, Fred Wilpon commented a week or so ago, check out this quote from a blurb piece on MLB.com titled Jeff Wilpon: The Mets' fortunes are steadily improving:
The bar is even lower than playing "meaningful games in September". It's to have a 50-50 record after 100 games.We played .500 ball over our last 100 games of last season. If we can do that for the first 100 games of this year instead of the last 100 games, we'll be in a good spot. So I'd like to see us get to that same spot, if not better.
In other words, to revisit the glory days of the 2011 Mets, the last team to manage that feat. And oh, how close the 2012 and 2013 Mets came to that, with 48 and 46 wins after 100 games! So we're really almost back to that good spot, people! Then in 2015 we can build on that to aim for MORE than 50 wins after 100 games, a high water mark not seen since the glory days of the 2010 Mets (who were 51-49 after 100).
Such good times can be had again, never you fear. You just have to have patience, faith and keep buying among the most expensive tickets in MLB.
