Never Accuse Fred Wilpon Of Seeing The Glass As Half Empty
So Mets owner Fred Wilpon thinks the Mets overachieved this season.
A year after narrowly missing the playoffs and then adding the best pitcher in baseball, the team imploded in September again and that's overachieving.
But no doubt they fired Willie Randolph because they were under achieving.
Well let's split the difference and say the Mets achieved.
Wilpon explained his statement by saying ""Look who our second baseman was. Look who our left fielder was. Look who was in our bullpen. "
So you are saying the Mets did well despite the team that the general manager put together?
And you gave that GM a 4 year extension.
Let's hope they achieve next year too!
