The Data Proves It – I Need To Attend More Mets Games
I used to have a similar record at Orioles games...they'd play about .700 ball when I attended as a kid. That stopped around 1998, after Davey Johnson and Pat Gillick left. From that point on the O's played about .200 ball when Kurt was present.
I don't think I am even close to having records of all the games I have been to in my lifetime, but I have kept track of the recent games, and I find that I go through hot streaks and cold periods...completely unexplainable. On my 40th birthday, the Mets lost to the Phillies at home. Roy Halladay pitched a gem. This was the first of (get this) 10 consecutive losses I went to at home. The team was losing so much when I attended, it was almost comical... thankfully I had a great time at each and every one of them despite what we did on the field! Since then, I have managed to go 9-2 at home (the last 3 wins were from 2011, and my record last year was 6-2). Does this mean we're in for another cold patch? Maybe... but the optimist in me wants to believe that the current hot streak is not over yet!!
25-21 at citifield since 2009 46-38 at Yankee stadium since 2009 25-15 at Citizens Bank since 2005 over 1250 ML games since 1966 attended in person at about 30 ML parks. Used have overall record in my head but lost count but have recording above figures last few years. Great article!
