When it comes to player personnel, in other words, the Mets are not going to be “winning” anything in the court of public opinion.
Which is refreshing, really.
Can you remember how many times in the past few years that Minaya would pull the “You guys thought we would be good” line, after another Mets disappointment? Oy gevalt. I mean, sure, it was nice to be respected, but teams shouldn’t be using media or fan pre-approval as crutches when things don’t work out as hoped.
This. Very much this.
