Nice to see Mets fans supporting the new yard
Day 2 of gorgeous new Citi Field: a mere 35,000+ fans, only 62% full. Hey, the economy's down, seats are expensive and the Padres are the Padres.
Nevertheless, the Indians sold out Jacobs field 455 consecutive days between 1995 and 2001 and the Red Sox surpassed that streak late last season.
We were part of the many sellouts in the first few years at Pac Bell park. Granted the Giants were good between 2000 and 2004, yet a new ballpark can really do wonders for attendance numbers.
Meanwhile, the Mets are probably the favorites in the National League, have a brand new park and there are like 50 million fucking people living in New York. Sell out your second game, dammit!
