He, he, he….
My son is beside himself!
The NY Mets with the BEST record in Baseball!
Well it’s the beginning of the season folks….
And as I commented here we have a a team that the owner was trying to sell for a few weeks when he thought he might have to actually dip into his OWN pockets…..
So the Mets are on the cheap right now….
Sure the Owner NOW promises to spend some money…
Sure the Mets lucked out with it’s farm system …
And sure they got smart and made the fences shorter….
It’s the first week people…
Let’s wait and see….

Mets autograph seekers were at Citi Field about seven hours before Monday’s game.
It won’t last. It never does.
This is about the way it is right now, and for Mets fans it’s undiluted sweetness, a blip of rapture to relish while it lasts, even if for only a day.
Going into Monday night’s game, the Mets were undefeated. First place, the envy of baseball. The fact that we’re only talking
3 NO 4 and 0 is just nitpicking. Another 90 or so wins and they’re a lock for the playoffs. The World Series will be simply a formality.
But what makes it sweetest of all is that the vile Yankees are the worst. Not a single victory upon taking the field in Baltimore Monday night, and maybe they won’t get any.
And Bernie Madoff didn’t steal any of their money. They didn’t lose Jose Reyes to oranges and Florida sunshine.
“It’s a new beginning,” declared Jodi Darowitsch, 46, a teacher and fierce Mets fan from Glendale, Queens, who doesn’t dismiss three games against the Braves as insufficient evidence to validate the start of a dynasty.
Think about it. On Sunday, Jon Niese dusted batter after batter and took a no-hitter into the seventh inning. These Mets — they’re good!
Shopping on Monday at the Queens Center Mall with her son and his friend, Ms. Darowitsch wore a Mets necklace. She carried in her wallet a treasured autographed baseball card of Keith Hernandez, the former Mets first baseman.
“This is their year,” she insisted.
Yes, Mets fans need not hang their heads or admit to Mets allegiance only after dark in deserted Queens alleyways…..
