Last year I had tickets to 15 games. You know how many I used? None. Sold every single one on Stubhub. Sold my playoff seats too...and the World Series. I made good cash. That cash off-set my horrible over-purchase of Mets tickets, tickets that I had planned to use. You all know how 2009 went.
The 2010 plan I bough is for 14 games. Unlike certain other teams, they are all on Sunday. The Phillies give me every single Sunday. No more, no less. Three of those are Mets games. I plan to use those.
As for the other 11 games? Sure I'm taking a financial risk. I could always attend the games...it's a nice park, I like cheesesteaks, and there's nothing wrong with a Sunday baseball game (unless ESPN ruins it.)
As the Phillies point out in their letter, they sold out 73 times in 2009, in a hideous economy. They are still the NL champs, I doubt I will get stuck with too many Sunday tickets.
Am I funding the enemy? Hey if my $400 is the difference between the Mets or Phillies winning the division, y'all can blame me.
If you are visiting The Mets Police for the first time, welcome.
This blog aims to be a little different. We're less likely to complain about a pitching change than we are likely to complain about what the pitcher was wearing.
We're about Mets history and tradition. We'd like to see a Seaver statue at Citi Field. We'd like the black uniforms to go away. We'd like the team to always treat the fans with respect.
We're just regular old Mets fans like you who have migrated from the uppers to the Promenade where we were saddened when we found plexiglass. Finally, for all our complaining we just want the franchise to win the World Series (while nicely dressed).
The site is updated several times a day, usually morning, noon, and night (cliche but true) with other items as they come in.
Mets Police in no way claims to be news nor accurate, including anything to which we link. It's just a blog. Read the blog and/or take our advice at your own risk.
We strongly encourage everyone to support the New York Mets and their business partners, just don't wear a black jersey while doing so.

I asked fans for a list of Mets traditions, and we didn't come up with many. How is Banner Day any harder to have than a Mr. Met Dash? Either way it's people walking on dirt. Click the pic for the list.
