Thank God I'm Not a Mets Fan

Thursday, January 14, 2010

It's times like these when I really appreciate the fact that I was born a Yankee fan. After one of the most disappointing seasons in Mets history, last night the fans found out that Carlos Beltran had knee surgery and will be out for 12 weeks. That brings Beltran and the Mets to about mid-April. Add time for rehab and Beltran won't be available until May.

It may not be the end of the world, the Yankees lasted a month without A-Rod, but man have the Mets been unlucky. Every star in their lineup went on the DL last season. Then outside of acquiring Jason Bay, their GM, whose job is on the line, has done practically nothing to improve the team. Now one of their best players will miss the start of the 2010 season.

I think today we can all appreciate that we are Yankees fans. This also reminds me how lucky the Yankees were last year to not suffer any serious injuries. Once A-Rod came back, the team was relatively healthy, a major reason why we won the World Series.

Hopefully the Yankees can remain healthy in 2010. With the Giants not in the playoffs this year, the countdown for spring training has begun a little earlier. Only about a month until pitchers and catchers report. And with the Yankees Hot Stove season basically over, the wait is going to be killing me.
