Taking You Out to the Ballgame

4 Mar

Welcome to CITI2SHEA.

The purpose of this blog is to follow the New York Mets and their attempt to grab back this city. After a heartbreaking 2009 season when the injury bug had more hits than the Mets offense, 2010 is a time for redemption.

The recent history of this team has been painful. Ever since Yadier Molina put a dagger in the Mets hearts that tragic October night in 2006, this franchise has been on a downward spiral. In 2007 and 2008, September collapses led to more heartache and more irrelevancy.

New York enters 2010 depending on starting pitching that is filled with “what ifs.” Omar Minaya and Jerry Manuel will live and die with Oliver Perez, John Maine and Mike Pelfrey. Why Minaya didn’t bring in a mediocre starter to eat innings will only seal his death sentence this summer.

If all breaks right, New York will have a chance. Yet recent history shows that life in Shea will likely repeat itself in Citi. It’s March so we hope they can pitch. One month until April when we realize they really can’t.
