I Had Tickets for Last Night's Met Game but Didn't Go

The 13-game package that I have for the Mets included last nights game against the Milwaukee Brewers.  It rained on and off all day as predicted.  We usually leave the house for night games about 6 PM.  It was dreary outside with a prediction for more rain in the evening.  We certainly didn't want to sit in a damp stadium for hours waiting for a game that may or may not start.  SNY was showing fill-in programming that we watched to wait for the announcement that the game would be postponed.  At 8;30 PM we gave up deciding that we would not go in any event.

At about 9:15 I received an announcement on my iPhone stating the game would begin at 9:50 after a delay of 2 hours and 40 minutes.  It did finally stop raining, but it was still very damp, but the Mets management decided to start the game at such a late hour.  My guess is that they just didn't want to play a doubleheader against Milwaukee on Sunday.  I watched the game until 11 PM after the Brewers led 5-0 after 4 innings.  In the morning I found out that the Mets lost 10-2 as Jacob deGrom was ineffective.

I opened up an email sent by the Mets overnight stating that all ticketholders for last night's game would be given tickets for any game on Monday-Thursday except for the games against the Yankees.
