Let’s Call the Whole Thing Off
A lot of fans have been calling for the Mets to shut down Jenrry Mejia before he injures himself farther. The calf, the hernia, the back. Enough already.
And others look at David Wright — baseball’s saddest player, and the face of the Mets franchise — and say, hey, let’s give that shoulder a break. The poor guy looks so lost.
Jake deGrom dodged a bullet with the tendonitis, but he’s near his innings limit anyway. Why push our luck? Why continue, you know? What’s the point?
Do we really need the sad, pathetic spectacle of a Bobby Abreu call-up in September? Has an organization ever been this tone deaf to the fans?
And to all this I say, let’s call the whole thing off.
Football season is heating up. There’s some new television shows premiering. I have to clean my oven, or my gutters, or clean something. And maybe we need to get the focus on our own damn kids are a month or two.
What’s the point of playing these games anyway? Why bother?
Can’t we just cancel?
You know, “with regrets.”
