Are You Ready for Some Baseball??!!!

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!!!

  1. I’m with you, Claudia — from all the way out here in Berkeley! It’s time to turn the page. Let’s go Mets!

    Sandy Alderson and Terry Collins in, Luis Castillo and Ollie Perez out, and Bernie Madoff locked up for life and in his own private hell. Expectations are so low we won’t disappoint and can only surprise. Lets Go Mets!!!

      I was glad to see Perez go. I got agita every time that guy was on the mound! Your assessment of this season’s expectations are perfect, I’d say. We’re 0 and 1 already!

    Glad to hear that you’re a Mets fan. The Yankees are just evil.

    • artmodel says:

      Mark, agreed! Met fan/Yankee fan animosity has died down considerably since the late 90s/ 2000s, but that team and its fans are still annoying as shit.

      Thanks for your comment!

    The first series of the season is over and the Metsies have a .667 winning percentage. Let’s hope they can keep it up.

    Let’s go, Mets!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (And the Yankees bite the big one.)

    Wanna go see a game sometime???
