The GM Meetings in Orlando, home of Disneyworld, came and went and while none of us honestly expected the Mets to make a lot of noise, let’s take a trip to FantasyLand for a moment. Imagine if the Mets DID grab headlines. Visualize Sandy wheeling and dealing and returning to New York with Jose Reyes. And Carlos Beltran. Let’s say Alderson outwitted Brian Sabean (go with me on this) and convinced the Giants GM to […]
Not that this should come as a surprise to any of you, but despite this afternoon’s probable packed house to pay tribute to Mike Piazza, Mets’ attendance will drop for the fifth straight season. Not counting Saturday and Sunday, Adam Rubin of ESPN New York crunched the numbers and calculates that with an average attendance of 26,467, the Mets rank 21st in the majors. Here’s a year-by-year look that illustrates the steady decline since 2008 when over four […]
Straight from the New York Mets… The Mets have named Lou DePaoli executive vice president and chief revenue officer, a newly created position within the organization. DePaoli, who has been executive vice president and chief marketing officer for the Pirates since 2008, will be responsible for leading the strategic development and management of all revenue generation for the Mets beginning July 22. “This is an exciting time to join the Mets,” DePaoli said in a statement.

After a disappointing 1973 World Series loss to the Oakland A’s, despite holding a three games to two lead with two games to play, the 70′s New York Mets quickly fell from grace in the National League East. Back then the East was filled with good strong clubs like the Phillies Pirates, Cardinals, and the not so good Cubs and Expos. In 1977, Mets general manager M Donald Grant traded the Franchise who was better […]
After 19 home games this season, the Mets have had just 548,518 fans come out to Citi Field according to ESPN. This comes out to an average of just 28,869 fans a game, which is only 69.1% of the capacity of Citi Field. Anyone who has been to a Mets game this year can tell you that that number seems to be higher than the actual number of fans who show up.. There are tons […]
It has been well-documented that attendance at Citi Field suffered a significant drop-off from its inaugural season in 2009 to the just-completed 2010 season. Last year, a total of 3,168,571 tickets were sold to Mets home games. That number dropped to 2,559,738 in 2010. The significant drop-off in home attendance can be attributed to numerous things, such as the luster of the new ballpark wearing off and the team’s second consecutive losing season. […]
Adam Rubin of ESPN New York, gives us the final numbers on how the Mets fared in attendance in only the second season of their new park, Citi Field. The Mets announced a final-game attendance of 30,849. That makes the season total: 2,559,738. Because there were two single-admission doubleheaders and technically 79 home dates, the average attendance was 32,402. Despite 92 losses in 2009, their inaugural season at Citi Field, the Mets announced a total […]
