"IMO, being negative or positive is up to individuals, but I tend to be more positive when my team actually experiences success. Call me crazy. "
So what you're saying is that you prefer to be negative and miserable, and not bother even having a little hope?
That's fine, and as you say it's up to the individual, but to me (personally) that does not sound like fun, and rooting for your team is supposed to be at least a little fun.
Otherwise why bother?
<<"However like I've said many times i love the pitching we have now and in teh system"
<<" I do think guys like Nimmo cecchini and Plawecki have a good chance to be good players when they fully develop."
Nimmo is supposedly raw, with great potential. We'll see in a couple how this works out.
Cecchini and Plawecki when drafted were nothing special. Again, it may turn out great for the Mets, but neither is considered an impact prospect.
Yes, the Mets have a few names in the system that Sandy & Co drafted, but don't forget ever other team also drafted players who they think/hope will turn out well.
I'm not convinced at this time that Sandy & Co were smarter than the majority of other GMs/scouts and scored an advantage. They may have, but it'll be a few years before it can be proven.
"i understand frustration but if you have no hope for your team then it isnt worth it being a fan. "
As I see it (and I'm not speaking about anyone specifically), baseball is not necessary to my well-being. I cheer when they win, and I'm not happy when they lose.
But it's relatively brief. The owners are inept, no question about it, but I neither hate them (like some do) or wish physical harm on them (like a few do, which is pathetic), but I hold out hope for the future because without it, why the heck am I bothering to be up here and watch the games?
Without hope, and getting no joy whatsoever, sounds like torture to me, and if I'm hitting my hand with a hammer, I'm going to stop because it's not fun.
" That is a clear sign of an immature and emotionally stunted adult! "
I can't understand it personally. It's as if some people 'need' the Mets to win.
