We will not be renewing our 15 ticket package for the Mets in 2010

In 2009, the first season at Citifield, we bought a 15 ticket package for Lee's graduation. We also thought that since the seating capacity at the new stadium was 15,000 less than at Shea that it would be dificult to get tickets. Needless to say the season was a disaster. A few weeks ago we got an invitation to renew for next season. Even though the price was 7% lower I am declining for a number of reasons:
  • I will have to commit by December 18th and pay several months before the start of the season.
  • The package includes 10 Saturdays and 5 weekday games. We like going to games on the weekend, but it was an inconvenience to go during the week. I should go to the games that I want not the ones that are imposed on me the the team's management.
  • As of this writing there have been no improvements made to the team. Some free agent signings and trades may come in the weeks to come, but I don't see a substantial improvement for next season.

The only consequence would be that without a package, it is likely impossible to get tickets for the Met-Yankee series. I'll have to watch them on TV. Perhaps if many people renew their ticket packages, they will offer 6 packs as they did in the last years at Shea Stadium.
