Time To Sell The Team!
A few months back, I had the pleasure of walking into a meeting that made me feel at home. It was filled with Mets memorabilia and even a bright orange couch for visitors. What a feeling! To first meet somebody for business and know you could probably spend days talking Mets baseball with them.
Through our conversation, a website was brought to my attention that many of you might find interesting.
With news that not only do the Mets expect to not spend this off-season which I know upsets many of you, and now the news that David Einhorn will NOT be purchasing part of the team, I think today is a good day to send a message!
http://www.timetoselltheteam.com/ is a fan site that offers fans like you, a chance to wear that message and sign a petition that will be delivered to the Wilpon’s at the end of the season.
Some of my favorite t-shirts include,
“Who Madoff with my team?”
“Ya Gotta Bereave”
“The Team. The Time. The Sale.”
“The Great Wilponzi!”
“Trade Fred. Not Jose”
There are 16 different designs, and all shirts are priced at $19.86 before tax. Which one will you buy? I think I’m going with Ya Gotta Bereave because most non-Mets fans would recognize that right away!
There has been a divide with Mets fans lately. Most of it stems from the front office decisions, and I think what we all need to come together and say is that we’ve had enough of the Wilpon’s. We deserve better. Sandy Alderson doesn’t write the checks or set the budget, neither did Omar Minaya.
They didn’t design Citi Field, they aren’t the ones deciding how much money can be used to sign Reyes and they haven’t been the ones who cannot even secure a minority sale in the franchise to keep their heads above water.
It is clear more than ever, that it is time to sell the team!
About the Author: Michael J. Branda
My time with MMO began in July of 2009 when I wrote a Fan Post defending Omar Minaya (before it was cool to do that.) I grew up a Mets fan with the mid 1980's teams. My favorite Met of all-time is (and was) Wally Backman. When it comes to sabermetrics versus old school thinking, I like to think I meet in the middle. I believe thinking of new ways to get answers is helpful, especially when the same way has not produced results. However, I think over-thinking certain situations can get you into trouble. I'm excited for the new regime, because I believe they have pieces in place to focus on several aspects of the Mets organization. I've waited this long for a World Series, waiting a few more years for another chance isn't going to kill me.
