Since the birth of baseball, teams have had one goal for each season and that was to win the championship and allow their fans bragging rights. Many teams have had the honor of not only winning one, but winning the Fall Classic multiple times. But for Mets fans wanting to win more than two and actually doing so, has been an uphill climb for so many years. With so many seasons with near misses, each one seemed to bring some promise that the team would pull it out, but only to be disappointed.
Playing in a huge market like New York, winning baseball is expected by the fans each year which does put a lot of pressure on the ballclub to succeed and we all know that isn’t always the reality in Queens, NY.
As die hard Mets fans, we wait each year for the chance to say that our team is number one, even if the experts feel that the Mets won’t do anything, but “We still believe”. We feel something Amazin can always happen and our guys are going to pull it out.
