It’s time for May’s Mets Ticket Giveaway, courtesy of Seatcrew.com. This week Optimistic Mets Fan is giving away two tickets to a game against the Milwaukee Brewers on Tuesday May 15th.
Seatcrew.com is a secondary ticket market similar to Stubhub with an important twist: There are no ticket fees for the buyer or the seller, which means lower prices on tickets for you. For a full write-up, and a list of which games you have a chance to win tickets to, check out my post from the offseason.
So here’s what you have to do to win. First, you need to have a registered Seatcrew account. All you need is an email address. Second, you need to predict how many hits David Wright will hit against the Phillies in three games. This means you need to have your guess in to firstname.lastname@example.org before Wright’s first AB tonight. There is one catch: Since this is an Optimistic fan site, we’ll be playing by reverse Price is Right rules. This means the person closest to the total without going UNDER is the winning entry. If you guess 4 hits, and David Wright hits 5, your guess is ineligible. Be Optimistic.
If it helps, the Phillies are scheduled to start Roy Halladay, Joe Blanton, and Cliff Lee returning from the DL. My personal guess would be 6 hits, with 2 home runs if you’d like to use that as a guide. Good Luck!
