Our next fan to answer the Five Questions is Carmine from Atlanta.
1. When did you start following the Mets?
Around 1983 or 1984 when I was 6 or 7. Grew up on WWOR.
2. What is your favorite Mets memory?
Matt Franco's game winning single off Mariano Rivera in 1999.
3. What is your worst Mets memory or experience?
I live in Atlanta, and the way the Mets play here I can't quite single out one bad experience... so I'll just say Turner Field as a whole. We are awful there.
4. If you could change one off-field thing about the franchise what
would it be?
Our training staff and medical personnel/practices.
5. If you owned the team starting tomorrow, what is the first thing
you would change?
By default, it would already be changed, and that would be an ownership that does not interfere with the daily operations. I would simply allow those in the positions of control to make decisions on their own, to do their job and trust them to do so professionally and correctly. If there was something I'd actually do first, that would be to tell Bud Selig to take his slotting theories and stick 'em where the sun don't shine. We are supposed to be a big market team with big market money, it's about time we started using that advantage in the draft.
