Like many (including Shannon) the only reason I purchased the Weekday Plan was to get an Opening Day....er...Opening Night ticket. My seat was horrible and the schedule (and team) really didn't thrill me. I ended up never using any tickets from that plan.
On the other hand, I used more than half the tickets from the Sunday Plan - going to maybe 10 games in total. Still, that was 5 games wasted.
So last year I paid for 30 games and went to 10. Yeah, call me a sucker.
This year I already knew I wasn't going to get the Weekday Plan. Fool me once.....
The Sunday-PLUS Plan though I was trying to keep an open mind about. But realistically, I know I am not going to go to most, if not all of the weekday games in the plan. And I will probably miss at least 1 of the Sunday games. Looking at the real cost then of these plans - and using the tiered ticket pricing that the Wilpons love - here is what it looks like
|Wed. 4/7 Marlins||V||$ 11.00|
|Sun. 4/11 Nationals||Y||B||$ 15.00|
|Sun. 4/25 Braves||Y||S||$ 19.00|
|Sun. 5/23 Yankees||Y||P||$ 27.00|
|Thu. 5/27 Phillies||Y||S||$ 19.00|
|Sun. 6/6 Marlins||S||$ 19.00|
|Sun. 6/27 Twins||Y||G||$ 23.00|
|Sun. 7/11 Braves||Y||G||$ 23.00|
|Wed. 7/28 Cardinals||S||$ 19.00|
|Sun. 8/15 Phillies||Y||G||$ 23.00|
|Thu. 8/26 Marlins||S||$ 19.00|
|Sun. 9/12 Phillies||Y||G||$ 23.00|
|Thu. 9/16 Pirates||V||$ 11.00|
|Sun. 9/19 Braves||Y||G||$ 23.00|
|Sun. 10/3 Nationals||S||$ 19.00|
|Plan Cost ||$ 293.00|
|Individual Ticket Cost ||$ 195.00|
he fact that the Mets don't offer any incentive to purchase in bulk (like just about EVERY other sports team in the world does) makes this even more ridiculous.
Obviously I won't be renewing. The math just doesn't add up.
