Generally the biggest factors in downgrading my plan was that I was tired of being a ticket broker, regardless of the outcome, and the tickets aren't exactly cheap, but also that I really have less time to attend so many games.

    I'm not necessarily a fan of Wilpon; I'm largely indifferent to him, as I think most fans are. Just commenting that your personal feelings towards him are pretty clear, and somewhat unique. No matter, keeps things interesting here.

    Question:

    My presale starts Tuesday, can you order them via phone? I only ask because I'm looking for a very specific section and dont want a "random" section to pop up when I hit best available. Thanks

    You have the option of BEST AVAILABLE for the Entire Stadium.. Or best available for a SPECIFIC Price Tier (Prom Box, Prom Box Gold, Prom Inf, Prom Reserve etc)

    You just got a subsidized new stadium and the City's planning on spending hundreds of millions more on building a whole neighborhood from scratch, across the street.

    Share some of the wealth with the fans!
    Thats pretty ridiculous.

    Yes, but I want a specific section under PRI. You dont have the option to search individual sections unless you call them.

If you pro-rate some amount of the years of his being a 50% owner of the team, he IS the team's historical owner, like it or not. And if you say "not", then judge him purely on the club's win/loss record over his ownership: from 1987-2009 the Mets have been on average a winning franchise, with a total record of 1861 wins and 1794 losses. From 1962 through 1986 (yes, including 1986), they were 1974-2187. He's also consistently maintained among the highest payrolls in MLB, typically second but never worse than third.
    I don't understand this. Wilpon was a part owner from 1987-2002 and bought out Doubleday at the end of the 2002 season.
    So how is Wilpon the sole owner of the Mets since 1987?

    He has been the sole owner 2003-2010.
    2003 66-95
    2004 71-91
    2005 83-79
    2006 97-65
    2007 88-74
    2008 89-73
    2009 70-92

    564 wins 568 losses as the sole owner.

    So do you guys think that there will be plenty of opening day tickets still available by Tuesday? I am especially interested in the promenade sections

    He's NOT the sole owner, he's the principal owner - in fact, the number two owner - Saul Katz - has a big piece of the team.

    OK I was using terms wrong. Wilpon became a part-owner (1% stake) when the Payson family sold the team in 1980, a 50% co-owner in 1987, and the principal owner in 2002.

    Part of my confusion came from Mongoose's using 1987 as a benchmark for Wilpon's influence, so I thought he and Doubleday were 50/50 owners since 1980 and that he became the principal owner in 1987.

    If you take 2003 as a starting point then he's not exactly built up a meaningful record to judge him on as an owner, only 7 seasons!. True the win-loss record in that timeframe is sub-.500, yet on a season's basis the team has had 4 winning seasons to 3 losing ones. For an owner whose stated goal was for his team "to play meaningful games in September", he's 4-and-3 in his tenure as the principal owner.

    Someone earlier posted the SH buyer passcode "SANTANA". Not sure if it's real though.

    Sure, but but he really did control the team's destiny earlier than 2003 - he was the managing partner in the Mets ownership group.
