The 2011 baseball season has arrived! My fellow Met fans, are you pumped? :sighs . . . groans: Let’s not allow Fred Wilpon’s disastrous business dealings with Bernie Madoff, or the Mets organization having borrowed 25 million dollars from Major League Baseball, or Johann Santana missing half the season due to injury quash our enthusiasm. We still must keep hope alive!! Who’s with me? 🙂
Here’s my spin: Rather than expect this season to be a slow, grueling, torturous experience of bad karma caused by front office ineptitude and mismanagement, I predict it will be a season of redemption. A catharsis. A purging of all the bad energies that have accumulated in Metville. We have a new manager who’s rarin’ to go, and this team may very well surprise us. Let’s try to do the “glass half full” thing.
Game one tonight in Florida, Mets vs Marlins, 7:00. Let’s go METS!!!
