The NY Mets, A Test Of Faith

21 May

You may be wondering as to WHY I would write something about Major League Baseball, in particular, the New York Mets.
Normally, this blog covers the World of The Catholic Faith, both Roman/Latin & Eastern, particularly Byzantine in the Eastern Catholic Churches. But, I still follow Baseball.
The Mets are basing themselves on a Team in the San Francisco Bay Area. No, it isn’t a team called the Giants, who over 58 Years Ago, called Upper Manhattan their Home Base.
Rather, The Mets are using the Oakland Athletics Strategy of “Moneyball”, as run by one Billy Beane, a former Minor Leager in the Minor League System of The New York Mets.
However, this Mets Mess is caused by a Primary Ownership, consisting of a Family, whose claim to fame, is having invested in a “Sure Fire Investment Scheme” with “Bernie From Far Rockaway” Madoff, who is now in a Federal Prison for 150 Years(Which means in reality, for good).
A couple of Mets Fans have a Billboard near Citi Field, calling for the Primary Ownership to sell the Team. Good Luck to THAT Strategy.
I am a Boston Red Sox Fan, who was 49 Years Old when the “Olde Towne Team” finally won a World Series for the 1st Time since 1918.
I understand the Mets Situation, having grown up going to Shea Stadium. I have been to Citi Field a total of two times. But, to me, there was nothing like Shea Stadium, what, with the Highest Upper Level in Major League Baseball. And wackier fans than anywhere, except for the Lower Bleachers in Fenway Park in the Kenmore Section in Boston, where I got a chance to razz Hall of Famer Ricky Henderson, for hiding in the Mets Clubhouse in Atlanta, during the 1999 National League Championship Series, playing cards with Bobby Bonilla. It was an evening where some girl named Kristen, was being razzed by certain Red Painted Males, who called her “The Vamp of The Fenway Bleachers” on September 8th, 2000.
It was a combined Red Sox & Mets Moment.
There was in 2002, a Moment in Shea Stadium, where the Utterly Despised William Roger Clemens, he who beaned Mets Catcher Mike Piazza in July, 2000 at Toilet II(Yankee Stadium II), was razzed by the combination of NY Mets & Boston Red Sox Fans. The Battle Flags of The Two Former World Series Opponents of 1986, were waved amid the Sarcastic Chant of “Roggggah”. The Game was televised on FOX. Even Joe Buck of FOX Sports got into this wild scene, calling for Mr Clemens to suffer some pain.
The New York Mets actually won 11 Games in a row on the 1st Home stand of the year, something which has not occurred since 1991 in Major League Baseball. In my opinion, I thought that this was way too good to be true.
But the New York Mets are fading quickly. In this town, you can’t play it like the Oakland Athletics. And I do call for a solution for rather Long Suffering Mets Fans. It is a Demand to the Principal Owner, Fred Wilson, his son Jeffrey and Fred’s Brother In Law, Sol Katz:
” Sell, Freddie, Sell! And take Jeffy and Uncle Sol With You.”
This bunch is as bad as M. Donald Grant, who traded Hall of Famer Tom Seaver, turning Shea Stadium into  “Grant’s Tomb”, which was no National Monument.
Mets Fans Live On.

” Vomit, Barf, Puke!”
