Where was the love last nite for David Wright, the Mets new All-Time RBI leader?
BMF was in shock after watching an utterly disgusting performance from the crowd of “Met Fans” at CityField last night.
In case you missed it, our Golden Boy David Wright clubbed a 2 run HR to breaking the All-Time Met RBI record. David surpassed Darryl Strawberry’s 733 with a 2 run HR. It was a big HR to give us the lead and the fans cheered like crazy…
They cheered, sat down and the game moved on without the slightest acknowledgement of Wright’s feat.
Maybe it was different in person but from watching on SNY the entire stadium looked oblivious to the history that had just occurred.
No curtain call? No Scoreboard tribute? Or announcement? No standing O, no Congratulations, no Thank You, nuthin’???
If this was a yankee setting a franchise record for friggin’ doubles they’d stop the game. Suzyn Waldman would be screetching, Sterling blabbering and 20 min of pomp and circumstance.
In Flushing… Nothing.
But I place most of the blame on the Met organization who once again fumbled away a chance to do something right. Where was the PR behind this to build some hype as Wright appproached the soon to fall record?
If Jeter was chasing an RBI record all of NY would’ve been talking about it for weeks. Granted it’s an unreasonable comparison with the yankees and their all-time records held by HoF greats but why can’t the Mets celebrate OUR history properly? It’s pathetic.
Admittedly I didn’t think about any of this until the moment was upon us but I’m not getting paid to run the Mets.
Which brings me back to the fans. They who should’ve known better and done more to spontaneously celebrate the moment. The good old Shea Faithful would never have let that happen without a Standing O.
Is there such a pall cast over this franchise that we the fans have become zombies??? Its a freakin disgrace.
