I think I need a new strategy to enjoy this year as a fan.
The last few seasons I’ve deluded myself into believing the Mets were a better team than they were. And I was pissed off and frustrated when they didn’t win.
But BMF ain’t falling for that trick again.
In fact the deck feels so stacked against us - injuries, busts, budget restrictions and the Phillies - that I don’t think we can qualify for the playoffs.
So I’m not gonna beat myself and the team up over every loss because I’m chalking 2011 up as a rebuilding season for team Alderson. It’s only fair for the fanbase to give the new sheriff time to implement his system.
Therefore my New Years Wish is simply for some positivity in Queens this summer.
After all the negativity the past few years we all deserve some positive vibes across a 162 games.
If our players can stay healthy, play passionately and we’re looking like a team that will be better in 2012 I’ll be happy.
At this point I don’t think it’s reasonable to expect more than that.
