The first four games of the NY Mets season mirrors the last four seasons.
The first words that come to mind are “mediocrity” and “playing 500 ball” as of their latest Friday night loss to Miami which was Miami’s first win of the new season.
How ironic that one of the ex-Mets who would have propelled the Mets into the playoffs in twenty twelve was traded from insignificant Miami to obscure Toronto.
Some might argue that Jose Reyes chose money, insignificance and obscurity over the Mets … while in truth it was the Mets ownership who chose money over Reyes, Beltran & Pagan and a possible Championship.
The footprints of Bernie Maddoff are all over the Mets fans and players backs …..
Mets ownership has no respect for the game of baseball nor the Mets fans and players whom they take for granted.
Did the ownership have “no choice”?.
I’d be curious to hear what the Mets told David Wright when they succeeded in resigning him.
Wright’s problem is that he’s also a fan of the Mets … and Mets management knows it.
After four games there’s no reason to panic. The Mets are loaded with enough young talent that they are pitching deep … protecting the team against poor performance and injuries on the pitching side.
All early signs point to a better than average offensive team and to a spotty defensive team.
Is David Wrights star power enough to replace Reyes, Beltran and Pagan.
Can the Mets success on the field erase the ill effects of Mets management financially induced single minded off the field rebuilding project?
It will be a long season of hope …. perhaps if fans are lucky it will come down to the wire.
But one thing is certain, it will be profitable.
