This is something that was long overdue that I've been too lazy to take care of. The link to SelltheMets.com which was dedicated to Fred Wilpon selling the Mets is now defunct. Freddie opened up his purse strings and allowed some common sense to enter his decision making and made some great movies.
1) Hiring Omar Minaya
2) Letting Omar do what he wants to do
3) Giving Omar the OK to pursue and sign Pedro
4) Giving Omar the OK to pursue and sign Carlos Beltran
Just like that, the Mets are NL East contenders, have a chance to draw 3,000,000 fans this season, and have created a buzz.
Met fans before....
Met fans after....
As you can see, life is good around the Mets and their fans these days and for that, SelltheMets.com has now been taken off line and it is being removed from the sidebar.
The high road...
"We tried to sign him," Minaya said. "We wish him well. I'm not going to dignify those comments."
The low road...
"Sometimes you want to kill two birds with the same stone," Delgado explained. "You've known you're coming to Puerto Rico for a while. So you wait until the last day. It's not like I live around the corner from the airport. I live two hours away. If there's something so important you've got to tell me, call me and say, 'I want to talk to you. Can you make it to San Juan or can we come to Aguila?' Don't come and stay in Puerto Rico for two hours, then turn around and blame it on me."
At least they came to you. You had to go and meet the Marlins. I see quite a rivalry heating up this upcoming season because the Marlins just cannot keep that yaps from flapping. Luckily for the Mets, Pedro is not afraid to establish the inside part of the plate to remind people there are games that actually need to be played.
Reyes and Matsui both went 2 for 4 in yesterdays' game and Scott Strickland gave up one run in one inning pitched.
