“I thought we created a lot to build on in ’06, but it seems like we have taken some steps back, off of that year.” – David Wright
If that isn’t the most obvious statement then I don’t know what is. The sad part is that the Mets may have a few more steps back to take before they take another step forward.
Their already is a Mets Tragic # watch that stands at 25 but soon the time will come for the Wilpons to address just what if anything at all they intend to do to right this ship. A difficult task indeed for whomever is charged with that responsibility.
Who stays? Who goes? Who makes that call? Get one of these wrong and the franchise can be set back for another 5 years. The magic/tragic # for the Mets may be 25 but the only number that I am concerned with is 35 the number of days remaining in the season.
