After 1/3 of their 2012 Home games the Mets attendance is down an average of 934 less per game compared to the same number of Home games this time last year.

too bad. factoring in weather, differences in weekday vs. weekend games, etc. it is pretty much consistent.
Not the ghost town Armageddon many predicted when Reyes took his hammys to south beach.

Well so far those hammys have held up in South Beach while the Mets replacement SS have all gone down in a heap.

True, now if they can only get them to hold up for another 5.75 years.

With the Mets luck they probably will!
Anyway don’t read into this that I favored re-signing Jose. This is not MMO and I’m not part of the core. I’m only pointing out the irony of the situation and the Mets bad luck with injuries.

will be interesting too to see how the attendance trends if the mets can manage to stay in the race through the summer (not imploding in June will help), and of course, don’t have a fire sale mid-season.

I never much paid attention to attendance numbers before last year. So much made public with the Mets financial problems kind of brought this to the forefront.
We all know now that down attendance = losing revenue and directly affects the Mets payroll going forward.
I know it’s always been a consideration – I just never much paid attention to it until the Madoff debacle. Mainly b/c it seemed since the Wilpons bought out Doubleday, payroll went up every year so I assumed there was plenty of money for the team. Little did I know….
