Welcome to the 2019 version of Resurrection. The New York Mets have risen from the ranks of MLB’s dead to challenge for a postseason berth.

What do you say about a team that appeared to be on its last breathe of life in a very disappointing season? A season with such hope and confidence that rookie general manager, Brodie Van Wagenen, boldly proclaimed at the press conference introducing him as the new general manager of the New York Mets, “We will win now. We will win in the future. We are the team to beat. Come and get us!”

If you kept up with the Mets, you know that the season wasn’t going well, more like a disaster! Fans posted on social media about what a disgrace this team is. Robinson Cano and Edwin Diaz are bums and we gave away our future for them.

This kid the Amazins sent to Seattle in the trade, Jarred Kelenic was being written up in the local papers on his progress. Partially to rub it in the face of the Mets front office and incite more anger from the Mets fan base. We knew more about a 19-year-old rookie in the minors than what’s in the hangar at Area 51. From all the hype, I guess he is the next Mike Trout.

How about that great signing of a proven all-star player Jed Lowrie? He was going to be a Ben Zobrist-type player covering multiple infield positions. Unfortunately, the only position we’ve seen is a drawing of a man with his leg hoisted on a harness as he recuperates from multiple injuries. Lowrie has yet to grace us with his on-field presence in Queens.
