New York Mets Tickets on Sale

The New York Mets fans have enjoyed watching a team in the running, a team scoring the eighth-most runs in the MLB and posting the 11th-best ERA. They have enjoyed watching a team drawing enough walks to give its middle-of-the-road hitting a chance to score the good old fashion National League way, moving players base by base instead of simply swatting homeruns. They have enjoyed a starting rotation with the most quality starts in the league that also goes a solid four deep. They have enjoyed the chance to meet the Yankees in a second subway series.

Third baseman David Wright remains the best all-around hitter for Manager Terry Collins. He is hitting an impressive .351 with an even more important .443 OBP and a decent 10 homeruns. He keeps his slugging percentage up by hitting to the gaps and collecting 26 doubles. He even can steal a few bases, though he gets caught half of the time. The batting order is built around him. Until Jason Bay returns from rehab, the New York Mets really have no other player who strikes as much fear into the oppositions pitching staff as Wright. First baseman Ike Davis only has 11 homeruns and has a terrible .199 batting average to go along with an embarrassing .273 OBP. Right fielder Lucas Duda has the same number of homeruns and a more acceptable batting average and OBP, but hardly anything that will blow fans away.

Shortstop Ruben Tejada has posted an impressive batting average and OBP in his small sample size. If he is able to keep up at .326 and .377, he will be a welcome addition to the batting order. Second baseman Daniel Murphy and center fielder Kirk Nieuwenhuis are hitting well enough to keep up this "death by a thousand cuts" routine.

The New York Mets starting rotation is standing out. R.A. Dickey is dominating the whole of baseball with his knuckleball. He has 14 quality starts in 16 games. He is virtually unhittable right now with a 2.15 ERA and 0.88 WHIP with a 9.24 K/9. Johan Santana is the staff ace despite Dickey's unbelievable season so far. Santana still has 10 quality starts in 16 starts with a 2.76 ERA, 1.09 WHIP, and an 8.54 K/9. Jonathon Niese is the third cog with 11 quality starts in 16 games with a 3.35 ERA, 1.22 WHIP, and 8.19 K/9. Dillon Gee is a good number four starter with 11 quality starts in 16 games with a 4.34 ERA, 1.28 WHIP, and 8.23 K/9.

Add a closer who has saved 18 of 21 games despite his high ERA. He is on the DL and super middle reliever bobby Parnell is taking over as closer for a while. This is going to stretch an already thin bullpen. Look for the New York Mets to add a reliever or two for later in the regular season when the pressure mounts.

New York Mets History

The New York Mets moved into the neighborhood in 1962 to take the place of the previous two NL franchises that moved to the California coast. Those first few seasons the Mets were run like an aging circus. The front office brought back former New York baseball stars and the team finished in last or second to last in the National League for the first seven seasons. New York broke out as the Miracle Mets in 1969.

They famously bounced back from an 18-23 beginning led by great pitching and defense and finishing with an 82-39 run. The New York Mets tickets that summer were then available for the franchise's first postseason appearance. Cy Young Award winning starting pitcher Tom Seaver headlined the roster as the Amazin' Mets swept the Braves in the NLCS and beat the Baltimore Orioles in World Series in five games.

Right fielder Darryl Strawberry, starting pitcher Dwight Gooden, catcher Gary Carter, third baseman Howard Johnson, and third baseman Ray Knight were a part of a loaded roster that won a franchise record 108 games in 1986 and reached the World Series, defeating the Red Sox in seven games. It would take 14 years before the Mets returned to the World Series. They met the Yankees in the World Series, but only lasted five game before the Mets departed losers. TheSeats has the NY Mets tickets for the Mets schedule for the next season, as the franchise begins another run at the NL Pennant.
