Remember the old game, “The Match Game?” Sandy Alderson decided to play the other day when he addressed a group of season ticket holders. When not doling out lifestyle advice that day he began a phrase with the words, “I really do believe we are close.” But he didn’t finish the sentence, he left it there. Gene Rayburn would not be impressed. Anyway, there are so many possible answers to this one, for now I will give my Top Ten.
So, with our usual apologies, here are our Top Ten Things the Mets are Close To:
10. Another Losing Season
9. Maximum Social Security Benefits for Management
7. Another .50 cent Concert!
6. Leading the NL in Walks!
5. Sandy Koufax
3. Trading Daniel Murphy
