Media Goon here- here is a little pontificating on my end. There have been a gaggle of ticket plan holders that are not don’t of what is going on with their perks, the tier system and their loyalty rewards. Lots of stuff was cut from years past. Ticket reps don’t give long time account holders the time of day and make it seem like they are a nuisance to even have to deal with. The whole experience at the ballpark so far this season has been abysmal and this feels like the Mets want to cut money to the day to day operations but yet bring in  another salary to do so. So you add money to take away money. Got it.
