Purchase viagra online Chipper Jones makes his last appearance as a major league baseball player in NYC this weekend. Purchase viagra online The Mets, purchase viagra online like other teams around the league, purchase viagra online will honor Jones as he sails off into retirement. Purchase viagra online Most of you will boo and kill the organization for honoring a player who was a thorn in the Mets side for the last 19 years. Purchase viagra online Your anger towards Jones is ill advised, purchase viagra online your anger should be towards the Skill Sets for not heading the lesson that Jones was teaching the Mets whenever they were the Braves opponent, purchase viagra online that lesson was “you need me to be a Met”.

Purchase viagra online Think about it, purchase viagra online Jones owned the Mets, purchase viagra online not just with his lifetime .314/.410/.553 splits against them or the 49 home runs he hit against them either, purchase viagra online what Jones tried to show the Mets was, purchase viagra online you need to act and think like a winner as to become one. Purchase viagra online When Jones would come to NY he played the stage better than any Tony award winning actor. Purchase viagra online We chanted “LAAAAAARRRRRYYYYYY, purchase viagra online LAAAAAAARRRRRYYYYYYY” and he ate it up. Purchase viagra online He loved the fact that Mets fans had a passion, purchase viagra online fire, purchase viagra online and desire that matched his. Purchase viagra online For a guy born in the South, purchase viagra online he had a New York mentality and I think a want to play here as well.

Purchase viagra online Why didn’t the Mets ever make a strong move on Jones when he was a free agent?  You would have thought an owner whose team was owned by a superstar player who had that balls to the wall, purchase viagra online win at all cost mentality, purchase viagra online  would say “hell if I can’t beat him then I want to join him”.

Purchase viagra online As much as Jones loved the Braves, purchase viagra online Atlanta and playing in the South, purchase viagra online I have to think is the Mets made an offer above and beyond like they did to land Pedro Martinez and Carlos Beltran, purchase viagra online Jones would have had a difficult time turning them down. Purchase viagra online We know his love for the city and Shea Stadium was so strong he named one of his sons Shea. Purchase viagra online   Back in 2000, purchase viagra online Jones signed a 6 yr/$90mil deal with Atlanta but when that deal was up, purchase viagra online he re-signed for 3yrs at $40 mil, purchase viagra online this was in the days of the Mets swimming in Madoff bucks so the thought that Freddy Skill Sets couldn’t have raised the stakes for Jones is ridiculous. Purchase viagra online I don’t remember if there was talk of the Mets making a pitch for Jones back in 2000 or even in 2006, purchase viagra online I doubt there was but in hind sight there should have been. Purchase viagra online It could be that the Skill Sets felt that going after Jones and even signing Jones would have led to fans revolting that a despised opponent would join their beloved Mets. Purchase viagra online  Well, purchase viagra online I guess we see what happens when you give in to the lunatic fringe of your fan base.

Purchase viagra online This is why, purchase viagra online as much as I loathe the Highlanders and old Boss George, purchase viagra online he knew players like Darryl Strawberry, purchase viagra online Doc Gooden and David Cone were the kind of players he needed to win championships. Purchase viagra online You think he cared that they were former Mets? Hell, purchase viagra online he signed Wade Boggs to play 3rd base who played for a team and organization he hated with a passion.

Purchase viagra online Think about Chipper as a Met. Purchase viagra online Imagine him with a kid like Jordany Vladespin ? Remember he called out Jason Heywood who came up as one of the hottest prospects in baseball for not playing due to fatigue. Purchase viagra online Jones went right at Heywood and made the Braves right fielder grow up fast.  I can’t say the Mets would have won a World Series championship with Jones on the team but I could guarantee he would have had no problem stepping up and holding his teammates accountable for their play. Purchase viagra online  I’m also sure he would have gone down as one of the greatest Mets players of all time.

Purchase viagra online So when Chipper Jones comes up to bat for the first time on Friday night, purchase viagra online what Mets fans should do is turn towards the owner’s box at Citi Field and give the Skill Sets a rousing standing boo not just for never pursuing Jones when he was a free agent but for not having the smarts to understand the lesson Chipper was teaching.
