So by now every single Mets fan has heard of or read the New Yorker article about Mets owner Fred Wilpon talking shit about his own team -- our team. Another shitty decision to pile up to the ones that actually affect the team on the field.
I’m glad that asshole came out and said what was on his mind without sugar-coating anything because now we all know that a few of us supporting the Squad from Queens are way more loyal and more supportive than the actual owner of the club.
Also it’s a good thing that he addressed some players by name and how they’ve been playing lately, especially DWright, who the past couple of seasons had the chance to reach superstar status and has fallen way short of that. Maybe now that Wilpon called him out he can play with some anger and step it up a little bit, I’m sure no one would be upset if we saw him put the team on his shoulders.
That’s how far I’ll go with agreeing with Wilpon. I think José Reyes deserves everything he’ll ask for, it’s totally worth investing on a player that is the face of the team and brings a little personality to what has become more and more a league full of robots “playing one game at a time, playing hard, doing my best” and all the clichés that they always say.
Ike is a great player, not on a shitty team, but on a team with potential. Given the terrible start and the ups and downs, the Mets have exceeded my expectations and are close to creeping up on everyone. Like I said a few days ago, I can’t wait for Ike to come back from the DL so he can finally take over DWright spot as the team’s "superstar".
If there were still people out there that didn’t hate Fred Wilpon, I think now every single Met fan will after all the shit he said about the team. Hopefully this is the extra push he needs to step away from the team and sell it to a TRUE METS FAN.
LET’S GO METS!
