Hey Paul,

My name is Barry with the New York Mets group sales department.  I wanted to introduce myself to you as your new Account Executive with the team.  We’re currently on sale for the 2012 season and I would be more than happy to go over your options with you for this upcoming season.  We have some new, exciting hospitality areas such as the Left Field Party Deck and Acela Club Patio to go along with our popular Shea Bridge Terrace, Modell’s Clubhouse, Delta Club Patio and Empire Party Suites.  In addition, we have designated areas throughout the ballpark that are reserved specifically for groups if you were looking for a block of regular ballpark seating.

Attached to this email is some information pertaining to each area.  Please feel free to contact me directly if you have any questions.  I look forward to working with you during the 2012 season!

Best Wishes,


New York Mets

Hey Barry,

How exiting!  Thank you tremendously for reaching out to me.  Allow me to first say that I am a huge Mets fan and have been ever since I can remember.  I am sure you get that a lot, uh?  That being said, lets get down to business and talk about the possibility of me purchasing tickets this year to watch this joke of a team play in person.

To get down to the point, there is absolutely no chance in hell I will spend 10 cents this year to watch the Mets play, let alone the absurdly over priced tickets the Wilpons are asking for.  On second thought, I would pay 10 cents for a ticket and in fact I would actually buy 3 tickets (not certain if that classifies as a group sale or not).  Now listen up, for me to buy the tickets, this has to go down in this exact order.  I’ll take 3 tickets only if Jeff, Fred Wilpon, then followed up by Saul Katz come over to my house and suck the 3 dimes out of my asshole.  If that happens in the exact order I just mentioned, then yes! I would be very much interested in attending a game this year.

This organization is a joke and an embarrassment to baseball and the entire city of New York. If Selig has any balls he would force the Wilpons to sell.  Somehow this current group of ownership managed to royally fuckup an unfuckupable situation.  Brand new ball park, largest media coverage in the entire universe, their own television network and the history of baseball in this town that goes back over a hundred years.  Explain to me Barry, why anyone pays money to watch this team play?  At this point, if I were to go to a game it would be more as a charitable gesture Barry, mostly because I feel bad for your pathetic lying thieves of bosses.  But I do not feel bad for them.  I think they are getting what they deserve and will eventually have to sell.  A day I cannot wait for.  Of course unless Jeff, Fred and Saul are ready to pucker up.  So give them a shout and let me know if they are interested in coming over my house.  I’ll start polishing up my dimes.  There is nothing more pretty than a nice shiny, Franklin D. Roosevelt.  Only maybe a winning baseball team, but I havent seen one of those recently.
