If you were asked to boycott Citi Field due to the departure of Jose Reyes, would you?
Perhaps last year at this time, you would have answered with a confident, "Naahh."
Nowadays, the reality of a Mets team without Reyes is more plausible than ever so if I were to ask that question again, would you boycott Citi Field if the Mets decided to part ways with the home-grown shortstop, sorry to say but I feel that Mets fans would rather endure several seasons of rebuilding than chant, "Jose, Jose, Jose," sad isn't it.
Have Mets fans become so jaded from the well-documented collapses of '07 and '08, that they would rather root for David Wright and a bunch of Triple-A castoffs than put their stock in battle-tested players such as Francisco Rodriguez and Carlos Beltran? Probably.
I say, let's see Reyes play a whole season without experiencing any setbacks before we deem him enemy #1. If the Mets are able to pull out the sweep today against the Dodgers, they will be just two games below five-hundred, not bad.
Advice to Mets fans, look into the mirror and see what you've become. If you ask me, it's pretty pathetic.
