If the Mets sign Francisco Rodriguez (I'm still using "if" until this thing is official. Remember Yorvit Torrealba?) prepare for more angry Phillies fans.
We always hear about how excitable and immature the Mets are, especially with Jose Reyes and his dancing. Well, K-Rod is probably one of the most over-the-top players in the league. Have you seen him celebrate a save?
It seems the Mets are sliding away from David Wright's pretty-boy image, and more toward the rough and tumble competitive side we've seen in all players at some time.
And I celebrate this.
The Mets have tried to stay "classy" for years, trying to show the upper hand in all of this. Meanwhile, the grittier Phillies have, well, you know.
It's time this team got some attitude, some spunk. Let's sign K-Rod and let's start celebrating victories with some screaming, fist pumping and even some dancing.
