Why You Shouldn't Root for the Mets

First of all, there's this asshole.


This dick should be in prison for his involvement in a Ponzi Scheme with Bernie Madoff. Unfortunately, he's got enough FU money to lawyer up and avoid any charges. Also, he looks like he's going to smack a reporter in that picture. What an unpleasant fellow.


What Mr. Wilpon can't avoid are bad deals and mediocre play. After his failed attempt at generating interest on player's contracts, he resorted to signing the likes of Jason Bay and Luis Castillo. There's always the dark cloud that hangs over any Met player who signs with the team: either they get injured, or they suck. There's rarely an in-between.


The perfect example of a Mets-like signing is Bobby Bonilla. Did you know he was brought in twice to play for New York? First, he started in 1992 where he batted .249. His tenure was so awful that he called the press box about being charged an error in a game. Off-field issues and a poor attitude contributed to his downfall as well.


Of course, you can't forget about the infamous deal that Bonilla got in his second go-round. The Mets agreed to buy out his present contract in 2000, paying the remaining $5.9 million with $1.2 million installments. Such a deal goes on until 2035 and features 8% interest. Mind you, this is the same Bobby Bonilla that hasn't played a game since October 2001.


The cherry on top is this team collapsing at the worst times. That's happening right now, with the team being riddled with injuries and subpar hitting. If you're a Mets fan, you must be thinking, "here we go again." That's why you should avoid rooting for the Mets.
