Hot Take from Metsblog: Sandy Alderson Will Be Disappointed if the Mets Don’t Make the Playoffs

Wow, great headline there Metsblog!

Also, kids are disappointed when they find out Santa isn’t real.

I won’t be that disappointed since my expectations are low. Why would we, a 79-win team that hasn’t improved in the offseason be disappointed that we don’t make the playoffs? I mean hell, if we win 85 games this year, that’d be nice, but is that even a playoff team? I doubt it.

Sandy Alderson also said, “We don’t have an All-Star at every position, but we don’t have gaping holes either.” Just then, Wilmer Flores and Ruben Tejada came poking out of the dugout, only to be swatted away by brooms and sprayed with water as they hissed and retreated.

Speaking of gaping holes, how bout owner? There’s a position with a huge gaping hole. HUGE. GAPING. HOLE. Actually, it’s more that we (the fans) are the ones with the huge gaping holes. Hey Sandy, hey Jeffy: at least take us to dinner first.

Tejada avoids arbitration. Wanna know why?

I know why, too. I really do. With Murph, Herrera, Tulo talk, and of course Flores “all up in tha middle,” why would the Mets keep Tejada?

This is why: Tejada’s walk-up music

*mic drop*

Shit gets all 300 fans in the stands JACKED UP!! I love it. It even sounds like the singer is saying “rubey ru tejada da.”

I noticed this song wasn’t featured on some lame blog’s “top 10 MLB player walk-up music” list, but that’s probably because they don’t think Tejada is a real MLB player. Shows what they know. He’ll probably be starting in May.
