Angels attendance is way down, Arte doesn’t care

Per game attendance is down at Angel Stadium by 4,300 fans. That’s compared to their numbers last year, but if you want to compare it to the height of Red October days, then that number is closer to 8,000. The benchmark for every season since 2002 was 3 million Angels fans passing through the turnstiles every year, and from these early estimates, they are not going to be hitting that mark. Are the Angels worried? Well, if Robert Alvarado, the VP of marketing and ticket sales is to believe, then no, they’re not worried.

Newsday: The Matt Harvey ticket effect for second Mets home game?

Apparenty, the Wilpons don’t want to be late on the next round of bank payments.

“Secondary considerations” was how Mets GM Sandy Alderson last month characterized the team’s decision to have Matt Harvey start the third game of this season at Washington, and subsequently, the second home game at Citi Field, instead of Opening Day at either stadium.

Well, that second home game was Tuesday night. And Harvey didn’t disappoint, allowing three earned runs on five hits in six innings while striking out eight.

Did the much discussed and speculated reasoning—selling more tickets for the second game when a home-opening sellout already was expected—pan out?

The Mets drew 39,849 fans on Tuesday night for a 6-5 win against the Phillies. That 9.3 percent drop from Game 1 to Game 2 is much less compared with recent years.
