Some things really do not change no matter how badly we want it to.
I really do not understand it. The New York Mets have a new bullpen that is supposed to get this team to the playoffs. That was their weakest link.
The second weakest link? Another age old story.
They cannot score with runners in scoring position.
I mean, seriously? You have bats like Carlos Delgado, Carlos Beltran, and David Wright. Somebody has to have a scoring hit.
Even still, I have to say that I still think that I am right. There are still some changes that need to be made to the lineup.
Here it comes! I can already hear some of you saying, “It’s only two weeks into the season. Give them a chance.”
Why should I or any Mets fan for that matter?
This has been the tale of the Mets for the longest of seasons. It is what cost the Mets the chance to get into the 2006 World Series.
How many times are we going to sit and watch this team load the bases and strand every runner? They can load the bases with zero outs and still fail to bring anyone home.
Yet, on a balk and one man on base, the opposing team can score? Give me a break!
This team needs to get it together. The offense needs to really pull together. Get more batting practice in. Do more drills! I don’t care what it is that they have to do, just do it already.
Mets fans deserve better than this. This city deserves better than this.
I wish I can give them a break on this. I just can’t. This has been going on for years.
They have tried bringing in bats. It has not worked. They are going to have to work with what they have.
HoJo really needs to get these bats popping. I’m afraid if it does not happen, he’s going to get canned. HoJo deserves better than that.
Come on, guys! Get it together already. You have had plenty of time.
For those guys who went to the WBC, there is no reason why they cannot bring guys home. They should be in mid-season form already. That goes for all players on all teams.
I want to see runners scoring. If one guy is left on base, fine. Not the bases loaded. The Mets will do that for three innings. It is inexcusable.
I’m sick of the same old story.
I want a new story to go with the new home. I want a team that can hit…a team that can pitch…a team that can win.
I want a championship already.
