The Mets deny gouging Yankees families

Yesterday the New York Post reported that some Yankees family members felt gouged by the fact that their tickets to the Subway Series games at Citi Field cost them $250. Meanwhile, family seats for the recent Braves series were only $80.  A Mets spokesman, however, says no one was gouged:

“The tickets are the same as Mets family members and priced the same as Mets family pays for tickets,” a spokesman for the Amazin’s told the paper. “Because of the variable pricing, ticket prices are different. It’s the same as Opening Day. It’s not gouging.”

Maybe the Mets want to look into their variable pricing model. Their high-demand series against the Yankees has not drawn well.
