"PSL Rally" on The Jets PSL’s

Yesterday I suggested it was a good idea to be happy with what the Jets offered.  My argument was based upon trying to cut the best deal you can.

I’ve been in correspondence with the guys at pslrally.com and with permission I am sharing an email below.   I’m just a dude with a blog, not 60 Minutes so I don’t have time nor energy to fact-check but here’s the viewpoint of what I call The Resistance.

It’s good news and bad news:

First the Good News

I’m happy that the Jets decided to add a benefit that I had discussed at the rally and on the website, which is to allow PSL holders to chance to buy tickets to other stadium events.

I do hope that the Giants follow this lead and add this benefit for their PSL holders as well.

I’m happy that 27,000 seats for the Jets do not have PSLs.

Now the Bad News

Personally, my PSL for the Jets in Section 137 is $10,000 per ticket or $20,000 for my two seats.  This is ‘twice’ what the Giants are charging for the same seats.

Also, my game ticket prices are going from their current $80 cost up to $140 per ticket.  This is a 75% increase.  This is $20 more than the Giants are charging for the same ticket.  How can the Jets charge more for their tickets than the Giants?  This is inconcievable to me.

Also, every single ticket for the Jets is at or more expensive than the Giants.  Even the upper deck that have no PSLs are $10 to $20 higher than the Giants.  The Jets have one more section of tickets selling at $700 per ticket per game called the Great Hall Club, where the Giants are asking $160 for these same seats.

In the end the Jets plan is not Fan Friendly.  They are raising the same or more revenue than the Giants and charging more money for their tickets than the World Champion Giants. 

Hard to believe but true.

I Know Jeter, Jeter Is A Friend Of Mine, You’re No Jeter

Bases loaded, Yankees trail 7-3 with the season on the line, one out and A-Rod steps to the plate.

A weak ground ball to short, steps on second for one, over to first.  Double play.  Side retired.

And that’s why you will never be loved in NYC, A-Rod.

(by the way is this post in violation of the “accounts, descriptions…” silly disclaimer that they announce?  Can I not mention that A-Rod grounded into a DP?)

In other mid-game news, that was vintage “Four Inning Pedro” tonight.  Sure he went 5, but he was gassed in the 5th, hence the nickname.   They spotted you seven, could you not wear out the shaky bullpen please.

Niese Is The Word

Been waiting all year to write that headline.  Looks like September 2nd is the day my new favorite Met joins the team.

Look at the extension on that left arm.

More home grown Mets!  Less Braves, Dodgers and Red Socks.  I love it!

Four Reasons The Mets Shouldn’t Worry About Pelfrey’s Innings Count

A week ago the talk was of limiting Mike Pelfrey’s innings.  One John Maine injury later and suddenly Pelfrey’s long term health doesn’t seem to matter.   The Mets need a consistent policy, so I will provide it for them.   Go for it…..


Four Reasons The Mets Shouldn’t Worry About Pelfrey’s Innings Count

1.  Dwight Gooden.   Mets Police have always been troubled by the Mets tinkering with the young Gooden.  They wanted him to throw fewer pitches.  The plan was so he could pitch into his 40s.   Yeah the drugs had something to do with it – but he wound up having arm problems anyway.   If it ain’t broke don’t fix it.   24-4 was pretty good, leave it alone.

2.  The Joba rules.   The NYY’s tried to nurse their young guy.  He wound up with arm problems anyway.

3.  Did arm problems exist before last year?    Tom Seaver threw 1000 innings in his first 4 years.  2000 in his first 8.  I never heard of this “max innings” nonsense until last year.   We watch little leaguers pitch from March to August and we’re going to worry about Mike Pelfrey?

4.  You have to go for it when you have the chance.   As Mets fans know, you can easily go a long time between playoff appearances.  Pelfrey is the Mets ace, and they have a half game lead.   The division is there for the taking – you have to take the shot.
