Remember Chipper, Greg, Tom and John. The Braves of yore had too much talent and left the Mets behind year after year.
The Cubs, through strong drafts and acquisitions (Zobrist, Fowler, Hayward, Lester, Chapman), have a hugely talented team. A headline yesterday speculated about a possible Cubs dynasty. What to do?
FIGHT FIRE WITH FIRE...SIGN CESPEDES, FOR STARTERS.
Or spend a bunch of years coming in 2nd best. Again.
It is my birthday. I like gifts, timely or tardy. I'll take Cespedes gift wrapped in Mets wrapping paper. FIGHT FIRE WITH FIRE.
