With this product, they’re still overpriced, but you gotta at least appreciate the effort:
With the New York Mets fading from contention, the team has cut ticket prices up to 50 percent for some seats for 13 of 26 remaining home games. Metropolitan Box seats originally priced at $180 can be had for $90 for six games starting with Friday night, according to an Internet promotion for TheaterMania members. The discount also applies to tickets originally costing $150, $138 and $90.
The Mets have signed pitchers Vance Worley and Scott Copeland minor league deals.
Worley had signed with the Reds in January but was cut by Cincinnati after failing to impress in spring training. That comes on the heels of a disastrous 2017 in which he pitched in 24 games for the Marlins, 12 as a starter, and posted an ugly 6.91 ERA, giving up 99 hits in 71.2 innings. He was much better in 2016 with the Orioles, in which he had a 3.53 ERA with a much lower hit rate in 31 relief appearances and four starts. As is so often the case, when a guy has some good year, as Worley has, he’ll get two or three or sometimes more chances to show he’s truly cooked. Worley will now try to make the most of it, most likely at Los Vegas.
Copeland with the Marlins last year too, though he spent all year at Triple-A. Copeland hasn’t appeared in a major league game since 2015, when he posted a 6.46 ERA in 15.1 innings with the Blue Jays.
Viva organizational depth.
