— Days Without Shea —

The Mets posted a Shea Stadium/Citi Field FAQ yesterday.

This entry struck me as particularly cold:

What else from the old stadium will be moved to the new?

Aside from some photos lining the hallways of the old yard, not much. As sentimental as some people might be about Shea Stadium, for Mets ownership this is very much the old making way to the new.

Really? We're making way to the new by building a stadium that resembles Ebbets Field, where the Mets never played? Citi Field is the ultimate nostalgia trip for the Mets owner, which is wonderful by the way. When I make my billions, I will tear down the stadium of whatever team I buy and build a homage to Shea Stadium (you're all invited, of course). It deeply worries me that the Mets have auctioned off everything from the retired numbers in left field to the championship pennants(!!!). Will we recognize this franchise in 2009?

Maybe we won't want to after last night's debacle...

Amen bro. The Dodgers thing is obnoxious. Fred should just see if he can buy the Dodgers and move them back, and let the Mets play in Los Angeles. He ignores the Giants and worse he ignores the Mets.

On the last day, they should have been in the traditional pinstripe home uniforms, not the Dodger replicas. I miss Doubleday. Was anyone from the Payson family there yesterday?
