Swiss oats a111  

Swiss oats a111 Sometimes I just don’t get the anger that spews from what I hope is a minority of the Mets fan base. Swiss oats a111 Yes it sucked to lose three in the South Bronx this past weekend and yes the defense and the bullpen along with zero production from Ike Davis and Jason Bay when he’s healthy have led to a nasty slide, swiss oats a111 but has it gotten to the point where some of our Mets brethren have lost their ever lovin’ minds?

Swiss oats a111 If you took to Twitter yesterday and you are a follower of Jon Rauch you got to see the worst and thankfully the best in Mets fans. Swiss oats a111  Some of the angry mob attacked Rauch in such a way that it made me blush, swiss oats a111 not an easy thing to do. Swiss oats a111 There were calls for Rauch to just go on the DL and never be heard from again and others who feel if it weren’t for him the Mets would be 1st place by a wide margin and there were some you called Rauch names in a screen that never in a million years would ever say to his face. Swiss oats a111 In fact I tweeted to Rauch that the same “fans” who say you suck and that you’re a big pussy are the same ones who hang out by the player’s entrance at Citi Field begging for your autograph. Swiss oats a111  I know the club has lost a lot of games of late but have we all lost our minds as well?

Swiss oats a111 Jon Rauch will be the first to tell you he’s “pitching like horseshit” as he said after giving up the game winning HR to Russell Martin. Swiss oats a111 He gave no excuses and stood at his locker and showed his emotions on how it sucked for the team and him to give up that shot. Swiss oats a111 That kind of accountably had been lost in the Mets clubhouse but not anymore. Swiss oats a111 That’s a big step forward. Swiss oats a111 No one on this team hides in the trainer’s room after a loss, swiss oats a111 no one  says “no comment” to any question, swiss oats a111 which is why this is an easy Mets team to root for, swiss oats a111 they’re stand up guys.

Swiss oats a111 I’ve been called a sellout, swiss oats a111 a stooge and an apologist because the Mets have been gracious in allowing me and my fellow bloggers access to the players, swiss oats a111 if that’s what you think that’s fine by me. Swiss oats a111 I will gladly admit I have not posted many negative posts here as I’ve done in the past, swiss oats a111 that’s because I really like this team, swiss oats a111 the manager and the front office. Swiss oats a111 Before I was invited to such events at Citi Field, swiss oats a111 I advocated hiring Sandy Alderson to run the organization and when the Mets not only hired Alderson but got Paul DePodesta and J.P. Swiss oats a111 Riccardi on board it was in my opinion, swiss oats a111 one of the best days in Mets history. Swiss oats a111 I still feel that way.

Swiss oats a111 The only people who mock and can’t see the future of the Mets is on the upswing are the ignorant. Swiss oats a111 Those who refuse to see the good work that is going on in the minor league system and in the front office. Swiss oats a111 Of course there is plenty of work to be done, swiss oats a111 this team not only has to pitch and catch the ball better and they have to play smarter baseball as well, swiss oats a111 we know that, swiss oats a111 the team knows that.

Swiss oats a111 Believe me there have been Mets teams in the past like the Jeff Torborg and Art Howe led teams, swiss oats a111 and the end of the Willie Randolph era teams and the Jerry Manuel teams that I have despised. Swiss oats a111  This team is the opposite of any of those lazy ass teams that embarrassed me as a Mets fans. Swiss oats a111 This year’s team has me rooting harder for the Mets than I have in a long time.
