There will be plenty to say about the baseball team that let never quite seemed hungry enough to complete what they started, but I'd like to take a few moments tonight to hand out some discredit where it is absolutely due.
The people that run SportsNet New York have, in their two years of existence, proven to be absolutely clueless about their primary audience, the Mets fan. Without us, this network has virtually no reason to exist. Unfortunately, the suits in command of this vehicle have no loyalty at all to Mets fans. Their decision to forgo pre- and post-game shows during the September pennant race for all games televised on Channel 11 or FOX was indefensible enough, but to provide absolutely nothing today with the entire season riding on the outcome was utterly inexcusable. They gave us nothing... nada... zip... bupkis.
Whatever else you might say about YES and NESN, they're always there for Yankee and Red Sox fans when it matters. Jeers to this joke of a network, which puts much more effort into trying to appeal to non-Mets fans than to serving us. Disgraceful.
