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).
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?
The pre-sale isn't for partial plan holders, is it? Just season ticket holders?
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?
Here's an interesting one.
Sandy: You got Mets koodies!!!
Just got this email. Unfortunatley the only games I care about, the Subway Series, are excluded.

Sandy: Fred Wilpon is going senile and thinks this says "Dodgers" and that you play in Ebbets Field, and I go along with it!
well i'm ok with the first 2 presales- the club mets...mmm ok but not on tuesday why not wednesday.. the stubhub is bad... is a killer for plp that sell tickets on stubhub, because there buyer, will be notify about the presale.. so why buy now on stubhub when there is a presale before public.....
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.
You gotta wonder what the inventories are looking for like for the OTHER 77 games... There must be PLENTY... very interesting..
"Wait this isn't Dodger town?"
Archie Bunker: All I can tell you, Edith, is I'm surprised at you! Dragging me off to a moving picture like that! It was absolutely disgusting!
Edith Bunker: Well, I'm sorry, Archie, how was I to know? I thought it was a religious picture, "Cardinal Knowledge!"
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."
