Since we are on ticketing today, one of our readers...Wait who am I kidding, my only reader sent me this and he is right.
Hello ticket office,
I think you need to broaden your ticket and plan packages beyond 20, 41 and full. This would have hundreds of fans if not thousands buying from the Mets and not Stubhub. Look at this from 2011: -from my reader to the Mets ticketing

FLUSHING, N.Y., February 8, 2011 – The New York Mets today announced the introduction of new Mets Flex Packs starting at $99 per seat.

Five, Eleven, and Seventeen game packs, hmmmm. I can see families doing a David Wright/Kranepool flex pack. Five games, no big commitment to locking into dates and be able to do other things in the summer. I can see maybe even a 12 game pack too. Still not too much of a commitment time wise and you might be able to even get @metspolice to buy a plan again. I wouldn't expect them to do a 17 pack because of the 20 game plans. I do think if the Mets were to add those other two options they might get more fannies in the seats. Baseball needs all the help it can get.
