NEW faces, NEW attitude for NEW Mets

the obvious buzzword being thrown about is NEW.

this is to differentiate the NEW mets from the OLD, SHITTY, BAD, LAST PLACE CALIBER mets. there's nothing NEW about changing over the mets roster with NEW faces, a NEW gm, a NEW manager, NEW coaches, a NEW attitude. it's downright OLD as far as the mets are concerned. the only thing NEW about it is it's a group of different players this time with a first time manager in willie.

i'm not excited about NEW. art howe was NEW once. guru peterson was NEW last year. big whoop. i want to keep this entry short, so let's not get into the big NEW roster changes of OLD that were supposed to be great.

the only thing NEW i want to see this year is the same NEW thing i was looking forward to seeing last year, and the year before, and that was seeing OLD players rejuvenate their decaying careers. i wanted to see certain players avoid their OLD injury-prone ways. i want to see a team that can pull off fundamental, situation baseball. that'd be NEW. i want to see a clutch hit, especially with the bases loaded and less than two outs. that'd be really NEW. how about some defense that doesn't give the other team 4 or 5 outs an inning? how about a bullpen that doesn't allow every inherited runner to score? how about some damn WINS? that'd be really NEW. that's what i want to see.... again.
