The Mets have just went through a 9-18 month of June that took them from 6 games over .500 and 1.5(2nd place) out of first place to .500 and 3 games(3rd place) out of first. Needless to say, the Mets are sinking and sinking fast. I believe we have seen just about everything that can go wrong with a team in just one month. Whether its dropping a routine fly ball to end a game or committing 3 errors in one inning, the Mets played flat out awful in June. While many say the Mets just have to “stay alive” until the cavalry comes back, the Mets at times just seemed to play “woe is me” type of baseball. Now im sure everyone can play GM and attempt to figure out what is wrong with this team and come up with solutions but the reality is no major help is coming relatively soon. Bottom line is the Mets are going to have to get it done with the people they have playing right now. I believe they need some motivation to see them through the rest of the year. I am a huge fan of the movie Major Leagues and decided to borrow a motivational tactic from the all wise Coach Lou Brown. In the Movie, the team(Indians) had a female GM who use to be a Vegas showgirl. Lou Brown decided to get a life size poster of their GM and cover it with several strips of leopard print. Lou said that each strip represents the amount of games he thinks it will take to get to the playoffs and with each win, a strip is removed. I thought it would be a great idea to incorporate that idea on here.
Yes i know…not the most sexiest motivation you have seen. Given this, i decided to use….better motivational material but I would like our readers to let us know who they believe would be the most motivational of these beautiful women to get the Mets on the right track. Seeing how weak this division is, 88 games may give us the division championship. The Mets would need to win 46 games in order to accomplish this. My hope is that they share the same success as the team in the movie had as in my opinion, they are eerily similar. So please weigh in on the 2009 Mets motivational model.
