When the Mets introduced this ballpark in 2009 all seemed promising but now many people wont sign with the Mets because of their ballpark.

Is this some kind of racism or was it just a bad idea for the Mets to open up this Ballpark?

To tell you the honest truth I cannot help to agree with these free agents such as Jason Bay because who would want to come play here.

I mean look what happened to David Wright, his home run numbers at home majorly decreased in 2009 he only hit 5 home runs at Citi Field the whole season 5!!,

To top it off the Mets have had a bad past 3 years, 2009 was a blow as many different injuries spoiled their postseason hopes as well as the Tony Bernarzard issue.

In 2008 The Mets had bullpen issues as not even one of those relievers could close out a game, and in 2007 the Mets just plain collapsed.

But moving on........

The Mets are really in trouble. Now the Mets will be out of the race and contention for free agents just because of their ballpark.

So what do you do now? Send money and move in the walls of the field, rebuild a new park and call it Citi Field.

The Mets future is really in jeopardy here.They may have to rebuild and rely on prospects for the rest of their lives similar to what the Marlins and the Rangers are doing.

Or the Mets may just have to become a pitching team which right now they are nowhere near to becoming.

The least logical desision is to rely on free agents to sign and have sympathy with the Mets.

Boy, am I unfortunate to be a Mets fan - even the Nationals have made better progress than us this offseason upsetting.....
