Let's Go Mets! APRIL 16 - HOME GAME #4 vs Miami Marlins (3-6)

Dillon Gee (0-1) faces Jarred Cosart (0-1) to start the four game series against the Fish. The Mets are riding a four game winning streak.


Lets Go Mets! The Mets were down 3-0 after a Marlins team record 155th home run by Giancarlo Stanton and a solo shot by Martin Prado. Wilmer Flores tied the game with a 3 run homer. Lucas Duda hit 2 doubles and drove in a key run in the 8th with a two out single. Dillon Gee had a shaky start but the bullpen shut down Miami for the Mets first five game winning streak in two years.

My view from under the Pepsi Porch

Tonight's game was the least expensive ticket I had purchased for the whole season. I actually paid more for parking ($22) than my seat ($14) tonight. My seat was located just above the right field fence under the Pepsi Porch. The crowd was no way near 20,000 as the official count said. There were a lot of empty seats. Someone was sitting in my seat once the game started but there were plenty of seats available. I asked an usher if I could sit in the front of the section and had a great view behind right fielders Curtis Granderson and Giancarlos Stanton. Another great game and a Mets win!

Four games, four wins! I could get real used to this. So far I have sat in center field, behind the Mets dugout, in the upper deck, and at the right field fence. I've walked the stadium quite a few times checking things out. Most importantly which food booths and restrooms are the least likely to have long lines. The staff has been very friendly throughout Citi. It's still a little awkward being at the games by myself but once the game starts everyone has one goal: "Let's Go Mets!".

Maple Bacon on a Stick!

This was delicious! There is a smore's version too with chocolate and marshmallows, but I have not tried it. Yet. Everyone complains about ballpark prices and they are outrageous for some items. But it just comes with the territory. I made sure to budget for food so I could enjoy some of the many different food booths that are all over the stadium.

After the game a guy in his twenties hands me a Rusty Staub bobblehead box and says" "Do you want this? I don't want to carry it". I took it, making sure the box wasn't full of garbage, and it was Rusty! Free Swag!!
