At what point does a fan completely give up on their favorite team because the organization making all the decisions is totally stupid? I guess the answer is that a true fan doesn’t abandon a team for this reason, but the Mets organization is completely stretching the limits of what a sane fan should have to endure.
You would think that a baseball lifer such as current Mets GM Sandy Alderson would be able to make a few more quality personnel decisions than he has, but somehow GMs with much smaller budgets do a lot more quality work with their resources than he does. Now, it is entirely possible that he is hamstrung in decision-making by the Wilpons, but still…this level of mediocrity should not be tolerated. It has been years since the Mets have been serious contenders for NL East titles or playoffs, and it is time to find someone to blame for this.
Hope is not a strategy – as some speaking in political terms have been known to say. We need a plan, an exit strategy from the mediocrity if you will. If the Mets have scouts who are not even close to making accurate player evaluations, we need new ones. The thing is, I don’t know who is responsible for this mess. I just want it to be fixed. Firing Terry Collins is not the answer. I suspect the blame should be placed on whoever evaluates this underachieving roster. So whoever that is, fire them and find someone else. What’s Billy Beane doing these days? Give him some money to play with and see what happens.
