The Mets Fired the Wrong Person

Mets Merized Online reports that the team fired Leigh Castergine,the Senor Vice President of ticket sales.  It seems that she was unfairly blamed for the decline in ticket sales.  She did bring some innovative ideas to try to bring fans to the stadium such as t-shirt Fridays, concerts, and family Sundays.  In 2009 and 2010 the team drew well as people came to see the new stadium, but the team has had a losing record every year since Citifield opened.  The record is now 64-73 with 25 games to go so it seems very likely the team will finish below .500 again.

Sandy Alderson has made some good and some bad moves.  The trade of Marlin Byrd and John Buck for Vic Black and Dilson Herrara seems to have worked out, but Curtis Granderson has been a very big disappointment so far.  Mets arguable have one of the best pitching staffs in baseball as money of the young pitchers are awesome.  They just need some consistent hitters.  If the blame is to go anywhere is should to the Wilpons.  I really hope they sell the team.
