Well, they lost A LOT of accounts. Plus, they removed 2 saturday games and added 5 weeknight games to the "Saturday"plan.
They carried that crap over to Citi too. We had a "weekend" plan when the stadium first opened and it was 15 games, 6 of which I believe were weekday games (Mon-Thu). We held on to the plan for another year but we gave it up after that. Just not worth it considering you could get games on StubHub or through the Mets for much cheaper without being tied down to certain games. Plus you got no benefits with the mini plan at all.
