Amazin’ isn’t it? Yes, but this franchise is notorious for perpetually losing. And when they do field a great team, the Mets are also hampered by the memories of some classic, late season collapses.
So far, the Mets are the talk of the town. And, they’re actually drawing large crowds to the usually vacant CitiField. It’s interesting to note that baseball, and sports in general, seem exempt from conventional wisdom when it comes to image and reputation.
There’s no way paying customers would remain loyal to any business that, year-in and year-out, produced an inferior product. Ah, but with loyal Mets fans, hope springs eternal each spring. And, I share that hope. But, I also have an ingrained fear that, by June, we’ll all be saying, “Same old Mets.”
