I just wanted you to be aware that the fanbase has spiraled all the way to worrying that the Mets are not going to re-sign Scott Hairston.
Now, I’m not going to suggest that you should overpay for Scott, nor do I begrudge Scott for seeking a payday after a pretty good year.
However, this needs to be brought to your attention because fans are worrying about SCOTT HAIRSTON.
When did it come to this?
Scott Hairston was the guy we made fun of.
Scott Hairston was the guy we complained about when Terry started him.
Now we’re worried he’s leaving!!
You know why?
Because as best as I can figure the Opening Day Outfield (prices start at just $63, get yours today!) is Duda, Nieuwenhuis and Baxter…and if we are lucky Andres Torres in there.
We all get that you guys are broke…but don’t turn around and charge us $63 to sit in the wings of the Upper Deck.
You get what you pay for, and your fans are going to pay for what they get.
MetsPolice.com is all about solutions. Since you cant undo the $63 price point since someone must have bought them here’s what you need to do.
Hit the database and find the folks that paid those outrageous prices and offer them “free” tickets to some other games. Bring their average cost down. Don’t worry, you’ll have some empty seats in the building.
Jeff, YOU – not Dave, YOU – need to come out on Monday and say you heard the fans, and YOU decided to step in and adjust the prices. You don’t have to throw any one person under the bus. Just say you’re the boss and YOU wanted to do better by the fans. Kind of a George Steinbrenner move, but hey you guys could use a George Steinbrenner move right now because $63 for Duda, Nieuwenhuis and Baxter speaks volumes.
You can have a Holiday Weekend free pass, but the clock resumes running on you on Monday.
Make this right Jeff.
