So who are the Mets at the half way mark of 2011?
We’re a .500 team. What does that mean?
It probably means we’re going nowhere considering that’s what .500 teams do.
I don’t mean to be a pessimist but I’m not afraid of the truth.
What are we pinning our hopes on to improve in the second half? The pitching? No way - the staff has been phenomenal and there’s almost no way for them to deliver a better half.
Is a post surgery Santana gonna show up in a cape and rescue us? Highly doubtful especially considering we don’t even have a hole in the rotation that needs plugging.
Is David Wright gonna save us? Hate to say it but he hasn’t been Mr America for a couple of years now plus he’s now coming off a fractured back.
Ike Davis? I believe Ike could definitely make a difference but he’s another guy who hasn’t picked up a bat in well over a month.
Maybe Jason Bay will finally turn it on amd carry us like he was signed to do. If you’re still waiting for that scenario to play out…
All I’m saying is we need to think about and prepare for the future. And the sooner we commit to that direction the faster the organization will turn around.
