Mets’ ticket prices plummet as team continues to struggle

In what is turning out to be another lost season for the New York Mets, interest in the team is quickly dwindling. As a result, ticket prices for even marquee matches are dropping like New York in the standings.

A matchup between two of baseball’s best starters at an iconic stadium would seem like an easy sellout crowd. Yet the Mets, who entered Saturday with a 31-42 record, are now seeing ticket prices drop to less than a sixth of their face value.

Things could only get worse if New York pulls the plug on its immediate future and starts to trade off pieces like a Jacob deGrom.

If you’re in New York Saturday evening and want to see deGrom and Clayton Kershaw duel, you probably won’t find a better deal than this.
