MetsIn looking ahead to all 30 clubs in Major League Baseball, David has now wound his way through all the American League with the AL East (see the Yankees - Red Sox - Rays - Orioles - Jays) , the AL Central (see the Kansas City Royals, the Chicago White Sox, the Minnesota Twins, the Cleveland Indians, Detroit Tigers) and AL West with (Angels, and Oakland A's,Texas Rangers, and Seattle Mariners). As begins his look at the National League, he focuses on one of the most important for the upcoming season, the New York Mets - Maury Brown


Team: The New York Mets

2009 Total Attendance: 3.16 million

2009 Average Attendance & Sell-Thru: 38,941 (93%)

2009 Record: 70-92, Missed Postseason

2010 Total Attendance: 2.55 million

2010 Average Attendance & Sell-Thru: 32,401 (77%)

2010 Record: 79-83, Missed Postseason

Looking ahead to 2011……

Notable offseason addition/subtractions: None

Interleague LY: NY Yankees, Detroit Tigers, & Minnesota Twins

Interleague TY: NY Yankees, Anaheim Angels, & Oakland A’s

April/May Games: 13 in April, 15 in May in 2011 vs. 17 in April and 12 in May in 2010

Holidays: Home - 4/24 Easter 5/8 Mother’s Day 6/19 Father’s Day Road - 7/4 Independence Day & 9/5 Labor Day

Overall Outlook: It appears the Mets’ Citi Field honeymoon is over after just two years. The team moved into the $600 million ballpark with designs on using the increased revenue to fund a late postseason run every year. This has not been the case and it seems to be getting worse by the day. Per Forbes, the team’s book value is -$225 million after 2 huge bailouts since the team and their employees were taken by Bernie Madoff’s ponzi scheme. The Wilpons still own 60% of SNY, their RSN, so could sell off some equity the team as they are attempting or a piece of the RSN. From a business standpoint, owning one without the other seems to be a hopeless endeavor. Their offseason in the business section makes predicting their 2011 attendance the toughest of all 30 teams. It will be very interesting to see how the fans react.  This is the New York Mets we are talking about. The Mets are fortunate to be able to run out David Wright and Jose Reyes everyday, although Reyes is a prime candidate for a July trade. The Mets have sold 2 million tickets for the past 13 years and even did 4 million just a few seasons ago in their last year at Shea Stadium. Dave Howard and his team have done their best to counter the Mets plunge in the standings and business section.  From their press release “The Mets lowered ticket prices by an average of  14% this season. The Mets have increased the number of tickets that cost $15 or less by 45% to 384,000 from 264,206 last season.  Almost 2 million tickets, or 61% of total capacity, cost $50 or less, up from 54% in 2010. “Additionally, they cut season ticket prices across the board by 10%. With their best pitcher , Johan Santana, on the sideline and playing the Phillies, Braves, and Marlins 18 times this season it will be another battle for the team at the box office. I predict the Mets attendance will be down by around 15% and revenues will be down even more due to the price decreases. It’s important to note that I think Mets' attendance is going down due to loss of honeymoon effect at Citi and the teams poor play. I think the Madoff issues will have very little effect in the minds of the ticket buying public this season. Mets fans, if it makes you feel better, I always predicted the Yankees attendance to be down as well this year.
