A message to Mets fans: There’s been a lot of talk about our outfield, and I want you to know that I’m in serious discussions with several outfielders I met on the internet. … There’s one I really like. He says he played at Stanford.”
>>> Dear Sandy.....go eff yourself. This is just the latest in a long line of glib tone-deaf statements from this franchise that includes "being a Mets fan builds character"
Gonna be a lot of laughs with a MLB-WORST outfield you've put together Sandy. Lots of laughs.
I like a GM with a sense of humor. To me it's a job requirement for the GM.
And the fans.
Lighten up a little.
After the last 7 years I'm no longer in a joking mood, sorry. But don't worry, our OF (and possibly our bullpen as well) will be joke enough for everyone.
I'd be more charitable towards this if Sandy wasn't the man who actually promised us he'd fix this problem during the offseason.
If I couldn't fix it I certainly wouldn't joke about it. We'll get enough laughs watching Duda lumbering after fly balls he misjudges all season long (and then striking out so much to boot)
So you give them another pass for this season.
At what point do you actually start to care? 2015? 2020? NEVER?
There's always going to be an excuse isn't there?
"After the last 7 years I'm no longer in a joking mood, sorry."
If someone can't maintain a sense of humor over a spectator sport, frankly (and I'm trying not to be judgemental), that person might want to ask himself/herself what they're getting out of being a fan.
"There's always going to be an excuse isn't there?"
Excuses are irrelevant. Caring is irrelevant since we have absolutely no control over what they do.
Only reality is relevant, and we'll know by OD what the roster reality is likely to be for 2013.
"He's compiled MLB worst bullpen and OF in consecutive seasons. "
Which of the guys in the pen last year, and the OF, were Sandy's?
And did you expect him to build an all-star pen and a solid OF given he's been here a little over 2 years, had to cut payroll as his FIRST and ONLY consideration, and he works for the Wilpons who everyone (except you?) consider to be as inept as they come?
