Adios Ike Davis(@Mets trade with Pirates)

Well, it finally happened, Ike Davis is now a former Met. Traded to the Pirates for a minor league pitcher and a player to be named later.
As the WWE says when they release a wrestler “We wish Ike Davis luck on all future endeavors”.

So how do we feel about this Mets pop-tonal cap?

@Mets and At the Ballpark App Has In Game Seat Upgrades

20140418-100803.jpg

This came to me earlier in my mailbox.
Fans can now upgrade their tickets in game. Plan holders get first shot at the upgrade 50mins before game time. Of course you have to pay to upgrade the seats, but I don’t know what the price difference is going to be. Maybe I’ll test it out on Sunday.

UPDATE-
Okay- so Ron sent me this on twitter

I contacted my ticket rep and asked him if that was true.
This is what he said-

/When someone purchases an upgrade through the app, they will have a new “ticket” on the phone that features a “Validate” button. The usher’s will use that but to validate the ticket and allow them into the new section. It is not a PDF per se, but it will be all they need. From everything I’ve been told, it is a very user friendly app.

Hopefully this clears things up

In Theaters October 3rd, 2014

GONE GIRL — directed by David Fincher and based upon the global bestseller by Gillian Flynn — unearths the secrets at the heart of a modern marriage. On the occasion of his fifth wedding anniversary, Nick Dunne (Ben Affleck) reports that his beautiful wife, Amy (Rosamund Pike), has gone missing. Under pressure from the police and a growing media frenzy, Nick’s portrait of a blissful union begins to crumble. Soon his lies, deceits and strange behavior have everyone asking the same dark question: Did Nick Dunne kill his wife?

Nick Dunne better hope I’m not on the jury.  Blue cap tip to @jeffhysen for knowing that my blog is so stupid that I would post this.
