The letsgotribe.com people are morons. Look at Terry Pluto's article in today's Akron Beacon-Journal for more examples defeatist attitudes among the fans. I'm not comfortable with some elements of the team either, but at least I'm not whining about it.
This is Jay from LetsGoTribe.com, and I wrote the headline in question. Although the team has often frustrated with a sub-arctic offense in the past several weeks, the slogan was meant as more of a comment on the team's fickle fans -- us -- than on the team itself.
It's a reference to the recurring Simpsons character "Comic Book Guy," who often would dismissively say things like, "worst. episode. ever." Regular readers of our site would get the sarcasm.
The LetsGoTribe folks are some of the more intelligent baseball fans around. They back up points with stats, stay positive when the ship struggles to stay afloat, and provide insightful information about players not found anywhere outside of Terry Pluto.
Be careful as you slang words.
Okay, Jay, I apologize for that. I just got done hearing a bunch of depressed Cleveland fans & jumped to conclusions. I get more irritated with some the fans than with the team.
3-1/2 game lead! Let's keep it going, guys!
The Mets blew their 10-9 lead in the bottom of the 9th with "invincible closer" billy wagner. Since this has been happening for the last 2 weeks, The Mets cannot handle having this happen for the restr of the season. On Sunday their lead was 7 games over their competition and now 5 days later, it is 2. The Mets should slip into 2nd place in the NL East after the upcoming series vs. the Brave, who they have struggled against this year
