    Not excited for Spring Training

    Every year I am excited for spring training and the new Baseball season.

    Not this year

    You are not putting on a competitive team or at least a fun team to watch. You let me favorite player go away for nothing and didnt even offer him any money

    I dont want to pay decent dollar to see players off the scrap heap

    Baseball is supposed to be fun, there is no fun watching this meltdown

    And its not like they are playing exciting rookies, from what I understand even the farm system is dry

      Blasphemy!

      The mets haven't been good in 4 years. So what's new?

      Baseball is coming back mets or not I am always excited for ST. Also we have a new stadium this year, not an airport.

        At least they had some fun players. Jose Reyes was a fun player



        1960's Mets were before my time, but they were supposed to be fun to watch

        Even if your team stinks, you at least want to think everyone is trying to win. I dont get that impression

          I agree. I could really care less about baseball. The Mets have killed all the fun for me. I'm sick and tired of watching garbage for the better part of a quarter century. Its sad that its come to this.

            That's the difference of being a Mets fan ONLY and being a baseball fan. If the Mets moved to Jupiter I still love baseball, and look forward to it.

              Still love baseball. Angry at Mets, Wilpons, Alderson for dismantling the franchise and going small market, waving goodbye to an all-time Met. They're a disgrace, and no, I'm not particularly excited about Mets ST this year - and usually I am.

              ST is just a reminder of how bad this team is, how incompetent and smug management is, how venal ownership is. What? I'm supposed to buy into those ridiculous "key year for Pelfrey" headlines?

                Ditto. ...although I do still bleed blue and orange. And I'm not sure how well the signal reception would be from Jupiter. But I love baseball the sport more than any other sport on this planet.

                Umm, we're not gonna turn this thread into another Wilpon/Alderson slapfest.

                  I have always been a huge Mets fan - like all of us, but I have always been a bigger baseball fan than that of any team.

                  The Mets will never ruin an upcoming St for me.

                    Hmm...I do love baseball, but it's closely woven to my Mets DNA. So yeah, this spring training (thanks to the team's situation, management, ownership, loss of Reyes, upcoming trade of Wright etc) is less joyful than any since the early 90s.

                        Thats where we are different. I need the Mets to be at least decent for me to care about MLB. I got incredibly turned off by the events of 1994-1995, and the game has never been the same in my eyes. I'm a football and hockey guy first. I just cant watch any old teams play, unless its the playoffs. I used to when I was a kid, but not so much anymore. If the Mets stink, then I lose alot of interest in MLB. I'm gonna get my baseball fix with the Ducks, and the Hamptons Summer League this year.

                          Your call but I am not really sure how you can hold an 18 year grudge against MLB, but the NFL slide with a lockout strictly based on greed just this past summer and hockey that lost a season.

                            It was a different time. I was just out of my teens and still believed in sports. I was the typical naive college kid, and baseball ruined all the fun that summer. It's more a case of that happening at that time than anything else. Plus I am a hockey player, and my dad and uncle both played semi pro football. Those two sports were more prevalent in our house growing up. I'm a sports junkie like one of my brothers who was a mets fan, so that started my path to mets fandom. Don't get me wrong I love baseball, and I will still get a fix through the Ducks and the Hamptons League. In many ways I enjoy going to those games more than MLB.

                              I'm usually giddy about Spring Training...I'm like a Mets version of Jimmy Fallon in "Fever Pitch" (watch that film before every season, probably the only non-Shakespeare romantic comedy I'd ever see over and over for fun.)

                              And the thing is, I'd be a bit bummed if the Mets were a 100-loss team, and I'd be pissed...

                              So long as I could still look forward to a few good players, a few Sunday Night Baseball match-ups against he Yankees or Phillies or Braves...some rather good stretches over the course of the year...a couple really memorable games (the 20-inning epic against the Cardinals in 2010, the Bin Laden Game in 2011) that made me glad I'd tuned in...

                              Not this year.

                              Jose is gone, Beltran is gone, Santana and Wright have been ruined, they destroyed my childhood stadium from which I take my namesake here for a cavernous crapshoot of a place...and now I can't even watch them most of this season, no ESPN games, few FOX games, and most of THOSE will not be seen by me, I'll be getting the Dodgers or Angels game instead (though in fairness, the Angels games will probably be a LOT better, I get the feeling I'll be watching a LOT of Angel baseball this season, they're always my AL team with the Red Sox to root for...no Mets on TV, with the exception of maybe 5-10 games total, and the ANGELS are a good team that I can watch all 162 games for, expect the playoffs, and watch King Albert every day and that great pitching staff--didn't the Mets used to have those, way back when?--pitch every day...)

                              I'm ready for baseball to be back again, and I'm more than ready to Meet the Mets...

                              Except they won't be meeting me, and by the time they do, it'll be the most bitter reunion since 2005.

                              AT LEAST, Paulie, AT LEAST over the last few years, 2006-01, even when the Mets weren't in contention, I could at least hope for a win each night.

                              They finished a few games under .500 each of the last two years, but at least near-.500 meant about a 50/50 chance of winning, and that, coupled with players I actually liked and cared about somewhat, was enough for me to watch from 4-7 before tuning in to either Vin Scully calling a beautiful Dodgers/Playoff Contender game (especially the Giants, I watch the Dodger/Giants games A LOT, and end up pulling for the Giants so much, I'll probably see more of THEM this year too, but at least I genuinely CARE about the Giants...and if you all haven't seen a Dodgers/Giants game in a while, do yourself a favor and tune in sometime, even if it is 10pm for you, or DVR it...those games RARELY disappoint, the Dodgers or Giants could be 10 games out and struggling, but when they play each other, 9/10 times, it's either a close game, or something else happens that makes you really glad you tuned in) or else it'll be the Angels playing someone.

                              The ANGELS have players I know and care about--Weaver, Trumbo, Hunter, Kendrick, Aybar, Morales, and now Pujos and C.J. Wilson...
                              The RED SOX have players I know and care about--Youkilis, Pedroia, Lester, Lackey, Ellsbury, Buchholtz...
                              The GIANTS have players I know and care about--Lincecum, Cain, Posey, Huff, Sandoval, and hey, I liked Pagan, like Beltran before him, at least I can see HIM more often...

                              Even if I COULD see them, the Mets just don't have as many players I've grown attached to and come to like as a player:

                              I like Thole, I guess, he's alright...
                              I like Ike, but who knows if or when we'll ever get back the Ike of old after those sonsofbi--er, well-respected trained professionsals butch--treated him with great care...
                              I like Turner, I actually think he's a bit underrated, but if he left tomorrow, I wouldn't be distraught, and ditto Thole...
                              I liked Wright, and I really hope he regains his form, but now, I'm not so sure he ever will...
                              I like Dickey...

                              And that's about it.

                              It's going to be a loooooooooong year...and for better or worse, I won't even be able to see most of it...my only consolation:

                              A much BETTER baseball team with a much SMARTER ownership group plays 2 1/2 hours away, and maybe, just maybe, I can watch THEM beat the Yankees this year (and you know what, the Angels actually COULD beat the Yankees, instead of the Mets maybe stealing 1 game out of each 3-game series and my feeling ecstatic for just THAT...I need to stop now, rambling and depressed--my Mets wall clock has stopped, what a fitting sign.) :/
