Well it’s 2012 and the Mets feel like the Mets of 2011, 2010 and 2009… Looking around, I can’t see Luis Castillo, Oliver Perez, Jerry Manuel, or Omar Minaya… So, why are the Mets still the Mets and not something new and better? Could it be Jason Bay? Terry Collins? Maybe it’s Jeff and Fred Wilpon and their special friend, Bernie Madoff? Maybe we should drum Sandy Alderson out of town because he drafted some guy named Gavin and didn’t make a trade for Francisco Rodriguez?
No. You know what? No, calm down and take a reality check. These 2012 Mets ARE different. They were supposed to crawl under a rock to hide until 2014. This team holding around .500 is actually pretty special and perhaps it means that the Mets are not this dismal team of no return.
Around this point most of you are probably thinking, “Is David crazy? This team is supposed to make me feel good about the Mets future? I’m not the one who needs a reality check.” Then you’ll go on Twitter or Faceboo
