Long time readers of Mets Police may be noticing that I have been more positive of late. Â I’m feeling good about the franchise.
The design of this blog was never to be a complaint-fest, but rather to help all strive for the ultimate Mets Fan experience….one that does not include plexiglass blocking your view, and ideally ends with a World Series championship.
A lot of things have changed for the better. Â Citi Field feels like home of the Mets. Â Many of the obstructed views are labelled as such (although the plexiglass still bothers me and I invite anyone doesn’t see the issue to meet me in 533 or 504 some day).
There seems to be a general air of the team engaging the fanbase, and that selfishly includes some interaction with the bloggers such as sending us the post-game notes and press releases.
I think this exchange in the comments section sums it up…I mentioned that Tejada wasn’t starting Sunday but it was possible I didn’t know something (which turned out to be Cora was .500 against Nolasco.)
Frank: Thatâ€™s what I like about Mets Policeâ€¦
been a Met fan for long time, follow the team everyday, but donâ€™t know who has the best OBP or OPS or who has the best ERA in Buffaloâ€¦â€¦.what uniform are the wearing today?â€¦and lets lose the black !
Now unfortunately I took this the wrong way but I’ll stand by what I wrote and thankfully I didn’t spit venom:
Well yeah. Iâ€™m not the manager or the gm. Iâ€™m just a fat guy in the uppers. Thereâ€™s plenty of blogs with all kinds of stats. Iâ€™m a guy who saw Tejada play well yesterday. Maybe his knee hurts or maybe Cora is batting .750 against the Marlins pitcher.
My site is about bring a Mets fan.
Frank: Â All I was saying is that Iâ€™m not a sabremetrics kind of guy and get somewhat intimidated at other sites that are heavy in the stats (I feel like sayingâ€¦get a life).
I like the fact that uniforms and other interesting topics are discussed.
That pleases me. Â As always I just write what’s on my mind and people seem to enjoy it.
During Saturday’s game I tweeted @metspolice that Mr. Met should visit the Promenade more often. Â On Sunday I got this from John:
Hey shannon someones listening again .Mr Met makes a appearence on Sunday in upper prom infield around sec 520.Keep up the good work
That’s cool. Â Coincidence? Â Someone read it?
Anyways, that’s how I am feeling….how do you feel about the franchise these days? Â I don’t mean wins and losses…are you a happy Mets fan?
