u are a gluten for punishment!
Waited the Giants out??? Then why did he trade a pretty good player in Beltran for a suspect...er...prospect like Wheeler? This trade got us the absolute worst outfield in Baseball. In return we got a guy who may never win a major league game. We wuz robbed. Be honest, the only reason this deal was made was because Fred and Jeff didn't want to pay Beltran.
Even if the Mets were in the playoffs next year, I wouldn't call it instant gratification.
After 4 consecutive 4th place finishes, there was no instant gratification. I think the reamining Mets fans have been patient and its time for the Mets to start getting better.
Yeah, there's still time before the season starts, but that's been the rallying cry for years. One thing is clear, some of the available talent that could have helped the Mets has been going to other teams, reducing the pool of players the Mets could use.
Instant gratification? That ship sailed a few years ago.
"I want third place and I WANT IT NOW!! "
Geez, aren't YOU the greedy one!
I just want that sweet, sweet taste of slightly worse than average. And I'm willing to give up everything to get it.
