    From that I dont think there will be a Subway Series lottery. OD right now has far less demand because Mets fans are down in the dumps about their club. The Subway Series on the other hand has more plan sales, likely more six pack sales, and higher individual demand because of Yankee fans who are high on their team right now. I'm sure the Mets also hope that if they get out to a good start, their fans perception of them may change by May, as opposed to opening day which will take place with a 0-0 record and a gloomy forecast on the season.

    That being said, I dont think they will institute a lottery because last year when the fanbase was excited, the lottery proved to be an epic fail (with everyone that entered eventually getting picked as a "second chance" winner).

    I never really got what was supposed to be so bad about Wilpon. Nobody's ever specific about it. It's amazing how people can talk and talk and never really quite manage to say anything real. What is it, that the Mets suck right now? They've been good before, and they've sucked before, and they'll be good in the future, and they'll suck again. This happens to all teams. Think the Phillies are good? Perhaps you forgot about their years of endless terribleness. The Mets make many missteps -- part of what makes them endearing, if you ask me -- but it's part of the game. Sometimes it takes them too long to fire the stupid GM, but they always get around to it eventually. (By the way, the current stupid GM was the most sought-after executive in baseball when they hired him.)

    I always hear this "he doesn't care about the Mets" thing, which always strikes me as a bizarre thing to say about the guy who by definition has to care about the Mets more than anybody on earth. He's owned the team for 25 years, buying it at a time when owning a baseball team was actually a pretty terrible way to make money. Is it because he was a Dodgers fan growiing up? So were 80 percent or whatever of the original Mets fans. Watching the criticisms about too much Dodgers at Citi Field in the last couple of years, my eyes have been bulging out of my head. Do Mets fans really not recognize the team's historical connection to the Dodgers?

    I still don't get how Citi could have been more original. Yeah, HOK built it, just like HOK builds almost all ballparks because teams are afraid to use anyone else because HOK has built the ballparks people like. There's Mets stuff all over it. I'm not sure why nobody realizes this. Player banners. Blown-up photos. The old skyline. The old apple. The new apple. Orange foul poles. You would never look at this ballpark and mistake it for anywhere else. I flip past it on TV and recognize it instantly every time.

    I just have to say, using the opening of a chain Irish pub as a reason to bash the Mets and Wilpon and Citi Field is a severe, severe reach.

    By the way, yes, I get mad at the Mets, too. That's part of being a fan. But it's not what being a fan is all about. You know, you don't have to be a Mets fan. You didn't marry into it. It's not in your genes. You can dump them like an abusive boyfriend. I hear the Yankees would love your business. If I were as angry as you are, I wouldn't be a fan -- of that I'm absolutely sure. Why would I be?
    Agreed with this, especially the bold. I never flip channels and mistake Citi Field for another park, or another park for Citi Field. So much of it is unique, from as you said the orange foulpoles, which only the Mets have, to the apple, to the black walls contrasting with the green seats, to the exterior, to the overhanging RF porch. I could go on but people get the picture. There has been this idea floating around that because all new ballparks incorporate ceartin similar features that are clear advancements over the parks that came before them (wider concourses, field view concourses, seating angled twoards the infield, smaller capacities than the giants that came before them) that they are all somehow replicas of each other. Citi and NYS have the same features and look absolutely nothing alike, Citizens Bank Park has some similarities but you have to be Stevie Wonder to mistake the two for each other. Even though they all have similar features and elements, each ballpark built in this generation has something recognisable to itself. While they still may not be perfect structures, its a huge difference from the previous generation where every stadium was an identical blueprint and the only variation was the color of seats chosen.

    very entertaining folks...

    I know the STH pre-sale is tomorrow, but I just got another email (this one wth a password) for a pre-sale on Tuesday. Do you think I could buy 4 OD tickets during BOTH? Or do you think if I buy 4 on Tuesday it will void my tickets I purchase tomorrow?

  7. #30587
    The pre-sale isn't for partial plan holders, is it? Just season ticket holders?

  8. #30588
    Never mind... I see the presale for the partial holders starts Monday. I also just got an e-mail about a presale for Stubhub buyers. What?

    In getting back, slightly, to 'stadium issues', I see over at the Target Stadium thread (new Twins park) that they have announced there are a number of obstucted view seats throughout the stadium. I do applaud them for stating this before tickets go on sale but it makes me wonder how long till Twins fan start to complain about the stupid architects, cheap owners, wrong colored walls .... oh, wait, that would be Mets fans. The Twins fans seemed thrilled to have a world class facility after years in that dump (worse than Shea). Guess they appreciate what they have.

    Edith Bunker: Well, I'm sorry, Archie, how was I to know? I thought it was a religious picture, "Cardinal Knowledge!"

    Good one!

    I am tired of the annual Sandy Koufax visits. Yeah, yeah, I know; he played ball with Fred. Fred was the better ballplayer in HS...etc etc.

    Sandy(about every Met staff since the Reagan administration): "Hey, I think this staff could be really good, if they throw strikes, stay within themselves, and focus."

    Phooey.
