Mets Tickets 12% Below Average For Series Vs Phillies

Almost ten years ago it was the Philadelphia Phillies and New York Mets fighting for the NL East crown. Now the two are just trying to stay out of the basement. The Mets have been rebuilding for years now, and the Phillies have slowly joined them as their stars have aged and regressed accordingly. But while the Phillies seem to be falling farther and farther into the depths of the division, the Mets have quietly started to turn things around. The Mets schedule in July wasn’t filled with easy teams, but the team still had the second best record in the division. Mets tickets are averaging $73.05 for the series on the secondary market, down 12 percent from the season average at Citi Field.

7/28 PHI AJ Burnett vs. NYM Bartolo Colon | Avg. Price: $106.58 | Get-in Price: $18

The first game of the series easily has the largest average price. Mets vs Phillies tickets are averaging $106.58 for the game with a get-in price of $18. Bartolo Colon takes the mound for the Mets, and he’s having a good season. Despite a 4.03 ERA, Colon leads the team in WAR through a team-leading 134 innings pitched. He has the best walk rate on the team, and is still getting plenty of strikeouts.

7/29 PHI Cole Hamels vs. NYM Dillon Gee | Avg. Price: $52.96 | Get-in Price: $14

Dillon Gee gets the second start in the series, and his numbers have taken a hit since he’s gotten off the DL. He’s been one of the more effective pitchers in the league over the last year, so he should be ready to kick off the rust sooner or later. He currently has a 3.49 ERA after getting rocked his last few times out, and his walk rate only trails Colon on the team. The game has the lowest average price with a $52.96 ticket average and a $14 get-in price.

7/30 PHI Kyle Kendrick vs. NYM Zack Wheeler | Avg. Price: $59.90 | Get-in Price: $17

The final game of the series has an average price of $59.90. Zack Wheeler gets the start, and he has been brilliant for the Mets recently. He has given up no more than one earned run in his last five starts. It’s the flamethrowers first full season, after being regarded as arguably the best prospect in the Mets system. His walk rate is really the only knock against him at the moment, as he’s gone deep into games, gets tons of strikeouts, and has made batters look absolutely foolish on occasions.

Apparently some Bacon on a stick stand opens at Citi Field tonight

Updated: I had speculated pork sandwiches, but James on Facebook says it is bacon on a stick.  I guess we will know later.

Torre, Prior to the Pedestal « Faith and Fear in Flushing

Mentions of Lee Mazzilli, late 70′s Mets uniforms, some good digs at Terry Collins and this gem….

Or maybe you just know him as the common sense-averse MLB executive in charge of keeping the Mets from wearing FDNY, NYPD and PAPD caps every September 11.

…it’s today’s must read!

By the way, the 9/11 memorials will be held on the 11th of September this year.  If only there were some mechanism where MLB and New Era could trot out caps for one-off occasions it would be neat.  You know maybe teams could wear caps to honor the military and donate the proceeds to military charities, or maybe even first responder caps and donate those proceeds to a related charity. If only MLB and New Era had some sort of way to do that….
