Boy oh boy, it’s the 3rd day of November and already the Mets fan base is restless. Between the outfield renovations, Jose Reyes freedom walk, the Skill Sets crumbling financial situation and the total lack of optimism among those live and die all things Mets ( not that we’re a Mary Sunshine bunch to begin with) has given me a Back to the Future kind of feel to it. I really, really hope this organization is not reverting to the De Roulet-M.Donald Grant Destroy a Thriving Franchise style of management. At least back then I had places like Max’s Kansas City and CBGB’s to go to forget my Mets sorrows all I have now is shots of Milk of Magnesia.
Mark Healy speaks for all of us long (and I mean LLLLLOOOONNNNGGGG) time Mets fans with his piece in Gotham Baseball.
Joe DeMayo of Pt St. Lucie to Flushing has his Top 25 Mets prospect list out and I’m happy he added LHP Jack Leathersich to his list.
Seems that the Skill Sets have settled with the pensioners of Sterling Equities in losing their retirement money if the Madoff nonsense. You know, when all these law suits are settled, maybe we Mets fans can file a lawsuit against the Skill Sets for abandonment.
