  1. If they have to depend on game day revenue they are in trouble for 2013. This is going to be the Mets 5th year in a row with a losing season. What is the draw? a battle with the Marlins for 4th place?

    They would need to play 10 All star games to make a rational Met fan buy a season ticket. I don’t think they will sell out a game this year!

    Why buy a full price ticket when you will be able to go to the secondary market and get them for peanuts.
