The Mets’ Outfield Could Be the Worst Unit in Professional Sports, and Maybe All of Life – The Triangle Blog – Grantland

The Mets, though, are still a team with fans and expectations and those $17 lobster rolls. And the prospect of running out three 26-year-old AAAA players, out of position and on the wrong team, is hilarious, cruel, and perfectly inexplicable. This winter, Mets GM Sandy Alderson was asked about the team’s plan for the outfield. Alderson, who is not aware that Last Comic Standing was canceled five years ago, responded: “Outfield? What outfield? We’re probably gonna have to bring the fences in another 150 feet!” Then he did it again in January: “A message to Mets fans: There’s been a lot of talk about our outfield, and I want you to know that I’m in serious discussions with several outfielders I met on the Internet. There’s one I really like. He says he played at Stanford.”

The Mets expect their fans to pay major league prices to watch a minor league team. Are they in for a shock!
