Well because these are the effing Mets and they haven't done anything really for quite a few off seasons. I hate as a fan feeling this way but I can't help it at all. Remember the good old days when they signed Pedro, Beltran, and several other key pieces of a winning team? How about when they traded for LoDuca and Carlos Delgado? It seems so long ago when you would get online or read about the next big splash the Mets were making. It was an exciting time as a fan.
Now, don't get me wrong, some of that led to the swirling down the toilet we have been doing for the past few years. There was consequences to some of those big signings and acquisitions. Cough Jason cough Bay. Our farm system went to crap as well.
Sandy, if you are reading this please please PLEASE make something happen to get this fan base excited. YOU have to. YOU must! And if the Wilpons don't like it tell them where to go. You were hired on to rebuild this team from the ground up and make it a winner. To win and make money you have to spend it.
