RYS to NYS: "Obi-Lonn never told you what happened to your father."
NYS: "He told me enough. He told me you killed him - in the 1970s!!"
RYS: "No, I am your father..."

my comments; i wish they could add a $5 metrocard to this deal.
Best deal right now via the mets is the Ronald 50% off code for value games till June 23rd.
Stubhub will probably have the cheapest ticket but if your a plan holder you pay no ticket fees ordering over the phone
Also Mcfaddens has $2 drinks from first pitch to 7th inning or $30 open bar for 5PM to 7PM.
I have no problems with you going to the games, actually I'm happy that you are going because I love baseball too. But it should be about baseball, not "tasty crab cakes." When did talk about baseball become synonymous with "fine" dining? I missed that memo. But I do know that owners like the Wilpons jack up ticket prices because of all the extra amenities that are at ballparks nowadays. That kills it for fans like me who just want to see baseball and are happy with a hot dog and a beer. So as long as you keep on raving about "tasty crab cakes," owners will continue to fill the parks up with all of these special items which in turn jacks up the ticket prices for fans who prefer not to take out loans just want to watch a baseball game. Understand?

2. Some of the best seats in the house are in the second cheapest price level. Plus 504 and 524 are not that bad.
3. Team owners are going to shoot the prices as high as they feel they can to make as much money as they can. And when they miss ( like the Mets did ) the secondary market and ticket specials create a price correction. That's how capitalism works.
4. I don't see the connection between on concourse upscale food concessions and higher ticket prices. Shoving Delta Club into the stratosphere is a different story.
5. Since the day NYS and Citi opened seats for all but a few games are available below face.
I know that there had been a discussion on the other thread about SCOREBIG.COM, i was wondering if anyone had tried doing it, how it worked and what the lowest prices anyone ever got for the expensive seats was
Paper seats were Fedexed overnight, face value $7.30 each. posted in the other forum. Scorebig said if game rained out or cancelled they would make it right.
I had some bids rejected @ 80-90% StubHub so I don't know how low they are willing to go.
Nobody has pics?

So IN MY OPINION, your claim was inaccurate.
I was reading Zack Hample's blog and there was an interesting blog post where he takes on-field batting practice at PNC Park with season ticket holders after the regular season ended in October. They have batting practice from a pitching machine, former players on hand and some sort of meal. I would love to see season ticket holders do this at Citi Field. "Take batting practice at Citi Field, watch your line drives die at the warning track and meet Nick Evans!"

The Mets have the best, smartest fans in baseball.
Here you go, although not an article about the Mets this is proof that its them dumping tickets onto Stub Hub. Now Ticketmaster wants a piece of the action...
Ticketmaster rolls out 'dynamic' ticket pricing
By RYAN NAKASHIMA, AP Business Writer 1 hr 42 mins ago
LOS ANGELES Event tickets seller Ticketmaster said Monday that it is introducing new technology to let artists and sports teams raise or lower ticket prices to reflect demand during the initial sales period a move it said will crimp the profits of scalpers and boost revenue for performers and teams.
The technology could push up initial prices for front-row seats while reducing prices on less-desirable ones that might have gone unsold otherwise.
Ticketmaster, a division of Live Nation Entertainment Inc., says the change should make it harder for anyone to send prices soaring by buying up all the best tickets and reselling them at substantial profit.
"When the fan experience is not clouded by scalpers grabbing seats, or when there's more options for fans to come to a better show, that has a great impact on our business," Ticketmaster Chief Executive Nathan Hubbard said in an interview.
The company already is testing the system, known as "dynamic pricing," with several professional baseball, basketball and hockey teams. Ticketmaster plans to roll it out at some North American venues in the middle of the summer concert season this year. A data analysis company called MarketShare helped create the pricing tool.
The San Francisco Giants baseball team started using a dynamic pricing system created by a company called Qcue Inc. in 2009. The team found that adjusting prices in real time to reflect sales data, league standings and which opposing team was visiting helped sell more tickets.
Qcue, which is not involved with Ticketmaster's dynamic pricing offering, now serves more than 20 teams in pro baseball, hockey, basketball and auto racing.
Its founder and CEO, Barry Kahn, said Ticketmaster's biggest challenge is bringing the system to the music industry, where there has been a "dysfunctional relationship" between artists, their promoters, and venues.
Since Ticketmaster's merger with Live Nation last year, however, the combined company now has all three functions under one roof, meaning the divisions should be able to work together, he said.
StubHub, the world's largest reseller of tickets and a subsidiary of eBay Inc., said dynamic pricing for sports events has not cut into its business. Tickets that command high prices on the initial sale tend to sell at even higher prices on the resale market because they're in limited supply, according to StubHub spokesman Glenn Lehrman.
And, when seats that aren't as good are priced even more cheaply, more tickets get sold, he said.
"Any kind of system that leads to lower prices, that is a good thing for fans," Lehrman said.
Live Nation's revenue fell 9 percent in 2010 as concert ticket sales dropped, even though it tried to get more people through turnstiles by cutting ticket prices. The company has said it expects global ticket sales to be flat in 2011, compared with an 8 percent decline last year, when it sold 120 million tickets.
Live Nation shares fell 14 cents, or 1.4 percent, to close at $9.73 Monday.
