Sorry Kermit, it’s actually quite easy being green. It’s being a Mets fan that’s really difficult. The New York franchise has a rich history, but also always seems to punish its fans with poor signings, bonehead planning, and inept management. In recent years, the team has reached all-time lows and I say this about a team who’s still paying Bobby Bonilla not to play. The team is currently the joke of Major League Baseball thanks to lackluster seasons coming off late-season chokes of ’07 and ’08, baffling roster moves, and constant ownership mishaps. Speaking of the latter, the Wilpons are — as we know — being sued for possibly $1 billion, and are still reeling from Bernie Madoff.
Having said all of that, there are some bright spots to this off season. Even though sports gurus pick the team to finish last or second-to-last, the team seems to be gelling more. Jason Bay and Jose Reyes are healthy, and while Carlos Beltran, AKA “Mr. Glass,” appears destined for the DL, the team dynamic seems to working better under new skipper Terry Collins.
