Sandy Alderson, @MetsGM, and getting ready for Spring Training

I originally wrote this in an ESPN comments section. I was reading the Rubin post about Sandy coming onto Twitter, knew to click the comments to see Mets fans complaining about the team. I found those, and this was my response. It was wayyyyy too long for anyone to notice in a comments section, so here we are. Stream of consciousness, like if you agree, tell me why you dont....

I think this is pretty funny, and it's actually sort of refreshing to know that the front office isnt ignoring that the team is a joke, and constantly toeing a company line. Hopefully the guys in the clubhouse will FINALLY have had enough of being a joke after 5 years (or for many young guys, their entire careers) and rally around shutting people up. I know this is the Mets; but i'll more quickly stop watching the team or baseball all together, than be angry or complain about the team.

I don't like the ownership, but i still like rooting for the team. The only people who see doom and gloom are yankees fans, and Mets fans that believe them (read: are jealous).

Ike Davis, Lucas Duda, Daniel Murphy, David Wright, and maybe, just maybe, Jason Bay are getting me very excited for this season. I expect nothing from santana, and think the SP, unless niese breaks out, can be dreadful. BP was improved, so what happens can be judged as a reflection of the front office. But as sad as it sounds, bringing in the walls, and the effect it will have on some of these guys abilities to hit it out, will be the most important thing the team does. Once the fellas start hitting them out where they used to bounce off the wall, the hitting styles get more aggressive, and we go from there. HR hitting is where this team needs to start...it's the elephant in the room.

The funny thing is, The team is in a better position than ever....at least if we lose, nobody will tell us we should have won. The pressure that this team clearly cant handle, if the last few years are indication, will not be there, and only surprised looks and "hmph' will welcome a winning streak. I can't imagine its hard to run with that, and I hope these kids can make everybody look like fools.....

but probably not! Lets Go Mets!
