I am so disappointed. Mets fans are always screaming, “We need to show the Mets we are not going to take this crap anymore“.
Oooo! You sure showed them. You voted four players into the All-Star game. That’s showing them. The Mets have the most players in the game this year.
What are you voting for them for? The only guy who really deserved it was Carlos Beltran. I can honestly say I did not vote this year. This team gave me no reason to.
Let me tell you who made the cut as voted by the fans. Here they are:
- Carlos Beltran
- David Wright – He beat out Chipper Jones and Ryan Zimmerman by over a million votes.
The pitchers that were selected to participate by Charlie Manuel:
- Johan Santana
- Francisco Rodriguez
Now that I have named them I can vent some more.
Where is Luis Castillo? The guy is the most improved player on this team from last year, while other guys are just getting worse. Castillo deserved to be there.
David Wright did not deserve to be there. He has made 12 errors already this season. He might break his record of 24 back in 2005. Seriously? This is the guy you want there? You think he deserved it? His batting average has dropped severely in the month of June alone to a .329 average. How it is that high is beyond me?
If Mets fans really wanted to make a statement to the Mets, you never would have voted for David Wright. You would have made him sit at home and watch the game on tv.
Better yet, the whole team should work by watching videos of themselves. They should be traumatized the same way we were this year just by having to watch them play. They should be focused on correcting their numerous mistakes, not to mention their hitting.
Beltran will give up his spot. No matter! I’m sure he was honored just to have been named.
