    If The Mets Host A Playoff Game In Two Years, What Will The Atmosphere Be Like?

    Watching clips of the 1995 ALDS, with Yankee Stadium going crazy after Mattingly hit that HR got me thinking. Knowing the Mets ineptitude over the past twelve years(save for 2006), how would a starved fan base react if the Mets hosted a Wild Card or NLDS game? Would it be close to the Pirates game against the Reds, how about the Yankees ALDS in 1995, or The game where Harvey faced Strausburg?

    Yes. Met fans will go nuts.In a good way.
    "Mr. Martin Tanner, Baritone, of Dayton, Ohio made his Town Hall debut last night. He came well prepared, but unfortunately his presentation was not up to contemporary professional standards. His voice lacks the range of tonal color necessary to make it consistently interesting. Full time consideration of another endeavor might be in order."

    Cloudy. Chance of rain.
    "The 90 wins is about challenge. It's about changing the conversation. It's about framing questions for ourselves as to how we get there. So I stand by the notion that we need to get better, and in doing so we need to set concrete goals for ourselves so that we have sort of specific conversations among ourselves about how we're going to get there." -- Mr. Alderson

    I think we have a very loyal and passionate fanbase who are desperate for a winning season- and deserve a winning season the way we have stuck with this team through so much crap and never bailed. So, I think we'd go nuts. I know I would.

    I stuck with the Knicks through the lean years, and I think its a pretty close comparison. Been crappy for years. Inept owners and subpar management. Payroll purgatory. And man, it feels so good now that the Knicks are relevant again. I do not miss a game. I rarely miss a minute of a game, and TiVo all of them if I can not watch them live. Even though I do not think they will win a championship, I am proud of my team. THAT is what it will be like when we start to win again, and I will go nuts when we're in the playoffs

    With a winning team I'd guess ticket prices will be so high most of the crowd will be corporate and more subdued. Citi Field also kind of has a dead quality compared to Shea. Shea would move around if the crowd got loud and crazy enough. Citi intentionally makes sections feel separated from each other, less united.

    What I wonder is, will people still gladly miss a couple innings of baseball to wait in line at the Shake Shack? Will there still be a ton of people roaming around the food court? I think the lack of energy lately is partly a result of the building as much as the losing.

    Yankee Stadium is corporate as well, but was rocking for Mariano's last game.

    It would be just like Shea was. The only question is...Will the stadium shake like Shea used to?

    Its a dream ... wake up .... it's time to go to school (or work) I usually sweat a lot when I have a dream like that. Then I see Ike, Tejada and Kirk and roll over and try to go back to sleep.

    Then I see Beltran last night and he's still clutch at 63. ...Painful.

    I doubt the Mets spend on FA, the news on Abreu being out of the Met's plans let me down.

    Just trying to stir the pot. I gave up myself when Harvey went down.

    The Mets have already given up, that's for sure. Mind you, even with Harvey they'd have given up anyway.

    Of course they're not spending, they never intended to. $50M off payroll, $26M in new TV money, and the Mets are cutting payroll again.

    The whole thing is one long con. People need to wake up and smell the coffee.
