The Mets Begin Preparations for Next Season’s Collapse Early


Luis Alicea - MetsIn 2007 and 2008 the New York Mets tortured their fan-base by choking away the division, and a chance in the playoffs, in the waning weeks of the season. This year, the team was more generous, choking away any playoff chance around June, so the fans wouldn’t be so tortured.

Never fear though Mets fans, there will be wholesale changes with this team; after all, the architects of such a continual failure can’t be kept around, right?

Instead of getting rid of the people making the poor decisions, instead the Mets — showing that all they do is make bad decisions — announced that first base coach Luis Alicea (right) won’t be back next season and that bench coach Sandy Alomar Sr will be offered a different position. PHEW! Now that’s settled there’s nothing left to hold the Mets back!

Thankfully, third base coach Razor Shines remains with the team because with this franchise it’s always important to have something to slash your wrists with nearby.

    hilarious. only the 3rd class mets.

    today at the press conference, minaya said he’s open to changing the core of the team. unbelievable. so, after 2008 where the entire core was healthy the entire year and they choke, the core stays intact. but, after a year where literally ZERO of the core was healthy, he’s open to changing it. what a fucking idiot. oh, also, good luck making trades involving the core, trading high paid players coming off (or still on) an injury makes lots of sense.

    now that ricciardi is gone minaya is head and shoulders above all others as the worst gm in baseball. oooooh he’s not gonna retain fernando tatis? whoa, what a shrewd architect!
