Most Mets fans have grown both accustomed to and frustrated by losing. It’s difficult to muster much enthusiasm when you see the crosstown rivals with a blank check and your team is hoping to catch lightning in a bottle with the likes of a former Long Island Ducks’ opposing pitcher (apologies to Greg Burke).
There is a risk in this approach, of course. The lower a player is in the minors the less likely that player will be able to sustain the same level of productivity with each promotion. However, the direction the club has taken for the past 6 years clearly isn't working and it's time to roll the dice.
