I just went to Mets.com to pick up some Mets shirts for the season. In addition to wearing MetsOnline.com gear from the MetsOnline Store and shirts from other unofficial Mets clothing distributers like The 7 Line, I like to wear official player tees. I figured this season I’d like to get a Lucas Duda shirt. So I did some searching at the Mets store online to try and find myself a Duda shirt. Well, what do I find? A Carlos Beltran shirt, a Jose Reyes shirt, a Francisco Rodriguez shirt AND a K-Rod shirt (yes, two separate items), and no Lucas Duda shirt. I search some more and I find a Gary Sheffield Mets shirt. Yes, I’m walking about the shirt in the picture to the right. Here’s the link if you want to buy it (kidding). Sheffield did hit pretty well for the Mets, and he hit his 500th career homerun with the team too. He hit .276 (.372 OBP) with hit 10 homeruns in 268 at bats with the Mets in 2009. But that was it… He is a baseball star. But, not a Mets star. He was a guy who played 100 career games in orange and blue, but that’s it. I really don’t have anything else to say about this shirt being for sale over a Lucas Duda shirt except that the Mets take a lot of heat sometimes when they don’t deserve it. But I’m just calling it how I see it right now. What do you think about this?
