    At least next year Mets fans will pay less to have their dreams dashed.

    The team sent an email to fans today announcing they’ll be slashing ticket prices next season. Tickets will be an average 14 percent cheaper next year, although several seat categories will be have modest increases in 2011.
    All told, tickets for 62% of Citi Field have been reduced.
    New discounts include a blanket 10% discount for all season ticket, ticket plan and group ticket customers. Plus, there is a new program called “Amazin’ Mets Perks,” which provides season ticket holders “unique benefits and experiences.”
    Season ticket holders will begin receiving their invoices in the mail next week.
    Last week, the Mets hired Sandy Alderson as the team’s new GM. Now team management will turn its focus on hiring a manager to replace the fired Jerry Manuel.
