2/26/15 - Rumors are circulating that Daniel Murphy, the all-star second baseman for the New York Mets, could be headed to another team for the 2016 season. Things are still uncertain, but one thing that you can be sure about is that Murphy will be here for the season starting next month. Next week, however, the preseason starts, so things will be heating up very soon. You can catch Murphy, and the rest of the Mets, on the diamond as early as March 6th when they take on the Detroit Tigers. That game is almost entirely sold out, but a few tickets remain for $76.

2/4/15 - As the New York Mets head towards Spring Training, the General Manager, any further trading prior to the start of the preseason is unlikely. General Manager Sandy Alderson has previously indicated a desire to trade Dillon Gee or one of the other excess starters. However, most teams have either filled their lineup or are waiting to see what happens with James Shields, who is a free agent. Alderson aims to have around 90 wins in the 2015 season, which is why he says having a bullpen that is eight or nine deep is not a bad situation for the team, and it could help the Mets stay strong throughout the whole season. The Mets' first game of Spring Training is on March 4 at Champion Stadium in Orlando against the Atlanta Braves, with tickets starting at $17.

They'll take on the Nationals this Thursday at Digital Domain Park, and you can still get cheap tickets: just $20 for their final Grapefruit League faceoff.
3/18/14 - In a move many predicted would happen, the Mets sent wunderkind and spring sensation Noah Syndergaard down to Triple A, with the option of promotion midway through the season. This will not only delay him reaching free agency by a year, but it will also give the top-prospect more time against experienced hitters before taking on major league sluggers. With Opening Day two weeks away, it's not too early to think about locking in your New York Mets tickets! The Mets will take on the Nationals at Miller Park, and seats are averaging $124.

2/25/14 - The New York Mets are in the middle of a squabble between first baseman Ike Davis and the media, after the player lividly refuted a report that his poor performance last year was caused by injury.

New York is also reportedly in talks to trade for Seattle's infielder, Nick Franklin, a rising 22-year old displaced by the Cano acquisition. See what surprises the Mets have in store this spring with New York Mets tickets! Mets tickets are $43 on average during spring training.
2/11/14 - The winter tale surrounding the New York Mets and a supposed deal with free agent, and former Red Sox shortstop, Stephen Drew will come to a head soon. With pitchers and catchers reporting in five days (and position players shortly after), the organization and player should reach an agreement soon if the buzz proves truthful. Drew would join other significant additions: OFs Chris Young and Curtis Granderson as well as starting pitcher Bartolo Colon. The Mets face tough competitors for their first game of the spring in the Washington Nationals, 2/28. Get New York Mets tickets and kick off Spring Training in Florida for $20.
1/29/14 - The New York Mets added a number of solid players to their outfield and a veteran arm (Colon) to provide security to a bullpen suffering the loss of All Star pitcher Matt Harvey. This revamped squad is on its way to a winning record this year—watch NY strike it hot during Spring Training! New York Mets tickets are $44 on average.
The New York Mets put in a lot of work this offseason to fix a notoriously bad outfield and bullpen desperate for some veteran experience. Saving up over the last couple years, the Mets were able to acquire Curtis Granderson and Chris Young for the outfield and pitcher Bartolo Colon, who will help relieve Matt Harvey (out this season due to Tommy John surgery). Most of New York’s roster is all-but solidified, but the Mets are still on the prowl for a shortstop to rev up their infield.
Though the Mets are coming off of their fourth straight losing season, the front office’s work this winter is sure to pay off! The additional players will hopefully bolster a poor slugging percentage, and reduce their high strikeout numbers. Luckily, all those penny-pinching years will finally pay off, with three big free agent players coming in to give the New York Mets a much-needed surge!
2012 was another year of struggles for the New York Mets, who wound up fourth in a very competitive division behind Washington, Atlanta, and Philadelphia, seven games under the break-even point and just five games ahead of Miami. Leading the returnees for the Mets is third baseman David Wright, who led the team in just about every offensive category but triples (Andres Torres) and homers (Ike Davis). The Mets troubles in fielding a consistent lineup showed in 2012, as only three players — Wright, Davis, and Daniel Murphy — had enough plate appearances to qualify for the batting title. On the mound though, 2012 was a year of firsts for the Mets, as Johan Santana threw the first no-hitter in 50 years of club history, and R.A. Dickey (now departed) became the first knuckleballer to win the Cy Young Award. Dickey's contributions will be difficult for the Mets to replace — 20 wins and 230 strikeouts. Dickey was also one of only two Met pitchers with enough innings pitched to qualify for the earned run average crown, along with Jonathon Niese, second on the team in wins and whiffs. While an evening at
Citi Field is always entertaining, a fully-loaded squad in Washington plus an Atlanta Braves team who was actively upgrading in the offseason, means the Mets may be fighting for third place at best in 2013.
New York Mets tickets at Citi Field average $96 in 2013, the sixth most expensive MLB tickets this season and fifth most expensive in the National League. The two-game Subway series versus the New York Yankees in May will be the Mets most popular home series; tickets average $208, more than double the Mets average home game tickets price. Other notable series on the 2013 Mets schedule include games with the Chicago Cubs and Philadelphia Phillies, and Interleague games with the Detroit Tigers and Kansas City Royals. Surprisingly, when the NY Mets host the world champion San Francisco Giants, Mets tickets average just $82 — that's $40 per ticket less than the average SF Giants road game, and only the Mets home series with the Los Angeles Dodgers and Houston Astros have lower average ticket prices. Mets fans looking to score cheap Mets baseball tickets will find seats under $15 in the Promenade level at most 2013 home games. Away from the Big Apple, the Mets continue to be one of the ten most popular MLB teams this season, with an average road games tickets price of $87.
