Today's average Mets fan is Kevin...
When did you become a fan?
i became aware of the mets in 1968, had the boyhood summer of a lifetime in 69 (i turned 10 july 7) been a fan ever since
fav memory ? hmm, i watched seaver strike out the last 10 padres. but the swoboda and agee catches (right up there with the timo catch) and the cleon jones last catch are probably the top. though 84 - 88 was sure fun
losing to florida on the last day 2 years in a row to miss the playoffs. ouch.
If you could change one off-field thing?
it appears the club doesnt have a philosophy or preferred approach to the game, they are kind of a flava of the moment team. that does not portent long term success (which is quite evident over the last 40 years)
If you suddenly owned the team...
fire the entire executive team. i would want to bring in a leader that has a plan with a history of player development, fiscal responsibility and the ability to develop a "Mets" way of doing things. no haphazard approach would be acceptable. that is one thing the wilbons should have copied from the dodgers (at least the old school dodgers)
