Following today’s loss and sweep at the hands of the lowly Nationals, Terry Collins exploded in the press-game conference. His speech included the following disparaging quotes:
“This has been an awful time. … I’m the manager of this team and I’m responsible. We didn’t manage, we didn’t coach and we didn’t play. It’s pretty simple.”
“…perception is reality in our game and the perception I have is that we folded it up.”
“Our fans should be upset.”
I’m not going to get into the nitty-gritty details of his ‘tirade’ but I would like to ask – are you upset at the Mets right now? We’re all disappointed, let-down, and frustrated, but are you upset? What changes with upset, as compared to the other adjectives, is that it usually calls for or begets change. I wonder if fans turning their frustration into anger may convince ownership that letting Reyes go or trading Wright may be back on the table, because change may be needed to quell the fanbase.
So, are you upset?
