There are times when I am embarrassed to be a Mets fans, and its because of other Mets fans. I don't know how may times in the past 24 hours I've run into variations of the "but he's right" when it comes to Wilpon's statements about Wright, Reyes, and Beltran. Just now I had this encounter with a friend of a friend on Facebook (big mistake going there) where the guy accused Wright and Reyes of choking the 2007 and 2008 seasons away. When I countered with facts about Wright's stat line down the stretch of both seasons, I'll give you one guess as to his response.
That's right - he struck out with Daniel Murphy standing on third base and nobody out. Let's ignore every damn thing the guy did that season to even get the Mets into a position to be in the playoff hunt, and instead let's obsess about one at bat. Then the guy continued saying that "you can't deny that Reyes and Wright are big chokers." Actually I just did, and you chose to ignore my evidence, retreating into your typical WFAN cocoon mentality.
Yes yes, I know this is a bit brief and not analytical for a fanpost, but I just had to get this off my chest. I'm just sick of the ignorant attitude of a large portion of this fanbase who can't appreciate how blessed we were to enjoy this trio in their respective primes.
