Discount viagra Roberto Alomar had one of the more bizarre tenures as a NY Met. Discount viagra How did a now Hall of Fame player, discount viagra go from hitting .336/.415/.541 with 30 stolen bases and 100 RBI along with 113 runs scored topped off with 66 xbh along with an All Star appearance, discount viagra Gold Glove Award and a fourth place finish in the MVP vote in 2001, discount viagra become a underachieving malingering  pariah as a NY Met in 2002?

Discount viagra Talk about your unsolved mysteries. Discount viagra Alomar just could not find comfort in Queens. Discount viagra He never fit in with the Mets. Discount viagra Maybe it was going from a first place Indians team to a losing situation with the Mets? Maybe all the baggage that Alomar checked in with at Shea Stadium, discount viagra the Hrishbeck spitting saga which weighed on him considerably and the constant meddling of fans and media about his sexual preference led to his down fall with the Mets, discount viagra I don’t know but I do know that he was one of the most hated Mets of all time.

Discount viagra When the deal was made though, discount viagra we Mets fans were a giddy bunch even praising Smarmy Steve Phillips for obtaining a talent of Alomar’s caliber but we didn’t get the 2001 Roberto Alomar, discount viagra instead we received a cheap knock off. Discount viagra It sure was a bad time to come to Mets as a “savior” or a difference maker and not produce and also come off as a malcontent. Discount viagra The club came off a great 2000 by winning the NL Penannt but losing to the Highlanders in the World Series. Discount viagra In 2001 the Mets got off to an awful start but rebounded in the second half of the season with a 44-29 recorded but the club faltered down the stretch and most folks didn’t care at that point as we all dealt with the attack on September 11th. Discount viagra  So on December 11th of 2001 when it was announced that the Mets had made a deal with the Indians for Alomar, discount viagra it brought hope to Mets fans that this move would get the team back into a post season berth. Discount viagra No need for revisionist history of the failure all around the organization during this time but Roberto Alomar was the guy who took the bulk of the beating from Mets fans, discount viagra venting their frustration with boos and cat calls until he was mercifully dealt to the Chicago White Sox in 2003.

Discount viagra In a story in the NY Times the day after he was dealt to the White Sox, discount viagra some evidence of Alomar’s unhappiness came out:

Discount viagra Exactly why Alomar was not himself in 222 games with the Mets will seemingly remain a mystery. Discount viagra Alomar said in a conference call with reporters yesterday that he liked New York, discount viagra and he made sure to add that he had great teammates.

Discount viagra He did not sound as if he could cope with the malaise that came from losing, discount viagra and the Mets lost 20 more games than they won while he was here.

Discount viagra ”The team, discount viagra maybe, discount viagra I didn’t really feel comfortable with the situation, discount viagra” said Alomar, discount viagra who batted .265 with the Mets, discount viagra far below his career average of .302. Discount viagra ”Sometimes, discount viagra teams don’t work for you. Discount viagra I think the New York Mets weren’t the right team for me.”    

Discount viagra When Alomar went to the South Side of Chicago, discount viagra guess who greeted him as skipper of the Pale Hose, discount viagra the Gangsta’ himself:

Discount viagra There was not much doubt even at the start of the regular season that Alomar would be the Mets’ second baseman, discount viagra but the team began to founder, discount viagra and Alomar became a target of the fans, discount viagra who thought he was not playing hard enough.

Discount viagra  ”I’ve seen a lot of players have a tough time in New York, discount viagra” Jerry Manuel, discount viagra the manager of the White Sox, discount viagra said in Chicago last night before his team beat Minnesota. Discount viagra ”New York is a tough place to play.”

Discount viagra Tough place to play, discount viagra tough place to be a manager too.

Discount viagra I’ll say this for Alomar with all the scandal that has followed him since leaving New York; his induction speech should be riveting.
