“…i swear, this could only happen to the Mets…
…i understand the team not wanting to encourage people to write all over the walls in their new stadium… so, they should take their cue from gooden, and either keep the autograph where it is, or erase it and have him sign a new, designated section in the ballpark, be it by the old apple, the bullpens, the Mo’s Zone, whatever, and begin a tradition of current, former and future players tagging the wall like a fraternity… the Mets should embrace the idea, and go with it… instead, it feels like they’re fighting the fans, and so they come off sounding like a teacher lecturing students about not writing on the desk…”
“It feels like they’re fighting the fans” That’s a great line to describe the approach ownership has toward the fans and in true NY fashion, the fans dish it back 100 times harder. Really, is there anything worse you can do to a New Yorker besides disrespect them or their interests?
Anyhow… Signature-gate is over as the Mets backed off. For once, it would be nice to have the right thing done without Met Nation needing to have a coronary. Guys… you need to start building some good will!!! Also, thank Dwight because this wall idea is brilliant and he unknowingly started it.
A few hits with RISP wouldn’t hurt either….
