NEW YORK -- Hey, Mets fans, that awful season was just a bad dream -- if you believe StubHub.

The company sent an e-mail Monday offering tickets for Mets' playoff games.

"Be there alongside your New York Mets as they chase baseball immortality," the e-mail said. "Go to StubHub, where you'll find a fantastic selection of tickets to every playoff game -- so you experience the championship chase live and in person."

StubHub said e-mails were sent to fans promoting several teams not in the postseason.

"This was due to an e-mail glitch," spokeswoman Joellen Ferrer said in a statement. "We regret the error and apologize for any inconvenience or confusion this may have caused. Follow-up e-mails will be sent to every person that received the e-mail, notifying them of the error on our part. In no way does this affect any transactions that have taken place on StubHub."

The Mets finished 70-92 and were out playoff contention by mid-July.

Ferrer said similar e-mails also were sent to Cubs fans. She was not sure of the identity of other teams whose supporters received e-mails.
