Evers: Is this what it means to be a Mets fan?

From Samuel Evers at The Hardball Times on October 10, 2019:

I have some thoughts about Mets Dog. I’m retroactively angry about the 2015 World Series. I have never been more ready to argue the de-emphasis on wins when it comes to the Cy Young award.

I think Mike Piazza is the best offensive catcher in the history of baseball. I think it’s a travesty what Dick Young did to Tom Seaver. I think Yankee Stadium is, most of the time, a hollow pit of a soulless echo chamber. I will never question why Flushing, Queens, has a baseball team and why, say, Brooklyn doesn’t. I find the big seam-headed baseball man to be unabashedly endearing.

Most importantly, I am ready to get hurt again.

I am a Mets fan.

Am I doing this right?
