The Mets are going to get their sellout

The other day we noted that the Mets risked not selling out Opening Day, which would have been the first time they failed to do so in 15 years.  But it looks like cavalry has come riding to the rescue:

 

It was mostly the cheap seats that weren’t selling previously. I presume that a lot of single-game and budget buyers assumed that the game would be sold out and that the coverage in the Post and elsewhere made people realize “hey, I can still go to Opening Day.”

    This sellout is as legit as a WNBA sellout. How many tickets were discounted?

    Yeah I see a bunch of empty seats. I doubt the mets would even announce it if they did not sell out. Mets would just fudge the attendance numbers.

    Even if legit sellout, it will be there only non- Yankee game that is sold out. The mets r going to suck this year, and there fans know it. Opening day is the only day that all teams believe they have legit shot at title.

      This is the kind of hard-hitting analysis I expect to find in the comments section. Well done.

      Also: Are you a little surprised the headline of this blog post doesn’t read “The Mets are going to get there sellout”?

      Phillies fans travel well. There might be some sellout potential there.
