A Special Holiday Message…

As you know, Mets Merized Online was on hand for the Mets’ Annual Holiday Party, held earlier this week at Citi Field. It was a fun event and our own videographer, Jim Mancari took a lot of video and photographs while he was there – some of which he has posted already.

Daniel Murphy did a fine job filling in as Santa Claus this year, and there was a good time to be had by all on hand.

But did you know that after all the festivities were over and all the children, the players, the beat reporters and the bloggers left to go home, Sandy Alderson couldn’t resist donning the Kris Kringle outfit and sending out a Special Holiday Message to Mets fans everywhere…

Yes, I agree with Sandy, the Mets are going to well worth watching next season, although I suspect more fans will be doing their watching from home – but hey, I could be wrong about that.

With a revamped bullpen that some are already calling one of the best in the division, a leadoff hitter who is excited for the opportunity to replace Jose Reyes in the lineup and Angel Pagan in center field, the always lovable Daniel Murphy at second base, the healthy return of Johan Santana to resume his role as ace of the rotation, and the emergence of rising star Ruben Tejada at shortstop, 2012 figures to be not only an exciting year, but as Sandy said, fun to watch as well.

Happy Holidays and Lets Go Mets!
