No Joy in Metsville
March 14, 2011
It is a good thing that I have come to view sports with a veteran journalist's detachment, that I no longer have a crazed passion for the favorite teams of my youth. Otherwise the Mets would have me feeling lower than owner Fred Wilpon's credit rating. It's not just that New York's ace, Johan Santana, is rehabbing his left shoulder and probably couldn't sneak a fastball past a Little Leaguer, or that the team's best all-around player, outfielder Carlos Beltran, has an arthritic knee that's as creaky as a cellar door.
