Holiday Blues for Mets Fans

More people commit suicide during the holidays than any other time of year. Why? Usually it has to do with depression and a lack of hope while others are enjoying the fruits of the season.

I'm far from suicidal, but that's the feeling I'm getting as a Mets fan. Where is the hope? Where is the anticipation of things to come? It's gone.

Reyes has one foot out the door. Management is preparing itself for a midseason fire sale. And after 4 straight seasons of utter depravity, there appears to be no end in sight. The highlight of the Mets off season this year, I guarantee will be the fact that they are moving the walls in at Citi Field. That's it.

I'm not saying the Mets need to go out and sign pricey free agents or make trades to be contenders this year. I realize this is a rebuilding process, but the Mets need a new marketing team because there is absolutely nothing coming out to make Mets fans even feel like there's something good to come out of the 2012 season.

Ah, I'm just ranting, but the Mets have to do a better job of trying to instill some sort of hope for the Mets fan base for the sake of their own sanity as well as ticket sales.

Right now do you have any reason to be a season ticket package?
