Interesting take here that suggests the Mets should have built a smaller park. Chicks dig the long-ball, not 2-1 games, right?
As you may have picked up, I’m a traditionalist, and the Mets have won in the past with pitching. Â I like the idea of a big park, and Omar keeps saying “pitching and defense” but went out and signed NO pitching and a power hitting low-range left fielder. Â Makes sense to me.
Meanwhile, when I’m reading headlines like “Starting catcher: Omir Santos or Henry Blanco” I start to wonder if I have traveled back in time. Â Might as well ask me “Starting catcher: Alex Trevino or Ron Hodges?” Â At least Hodges had his number retired.
