Fan Gives Mets Ultimatum


Andy Nichols has been a Mets’ fan for his entire life, originally coming from Suffolk County before moving to Wilmington, North Carolina, and he has had just about enough of Fred and Jeff Wilpon’s spending freeze, and he urged the owners to make a push in the right direction or he and his 8-month-old son, Elijah, will root for someone else.

“It would break my heart,” he said. “But I’d rather break my heart than (Elijah’s).”

While posting a YouTube video and showing examples of how you’re a true blue Mets fan your entire life is a noble concept, threatening to leave is not. Being a fan is like marriage. Through good times and bad, through sickness and health, as long as we both shall live. To be quite honest, I lose respect for people who jump ship just because times are bad.

In the Mets’ case, there’s reason for hope. We have a returning Matt Harvey, a solid hitter in Michael Cuddyer and hopefully David Wright returns to form. Combine that with the plethora of young pitching we have, and the Mets could be a contender for a playoff spot in 2015.

As for fans who are at their wit’s end, I understand. I have screamed and yelled and lost my mind just like the rest of you, but what is changing teams going to accomplish? Who are you going to root for? Those who switch to the Yankees can go, no questions asked. We didn’t want you in the first place.

Patience is a virtue my friends, and hopefully, sooner than later, it is going to pay off. For a full look at Andy’s video, see below.
