Mets honoring Chipper Jones: What a joke!!!!
As a fan just think of honoring your most hated rival and try not to vomit. It would be like the Yankees honoring any Red Sox player not named Johnny Damon or Roger Clemens. As a Yankees fan could you imagine honoring David Ortiz, Curt Schilling or Jonathon Papelbon? Did you just throw up in your mouth a little? It would be like the Knicks honoring Michael Jordan or Reggie Miller.
Chipper Jones caused great pain to millions of Mets fans (ok, they probably don't have millions of fans) and this is how ownership treats their fan base? It's bad enough the team is poor and can't spend a dime on any player. If I were a Mets fan, this would be the day I would hand in my fan card. I would be too embarrassed to ever root for the franchise again.
It's like honoring the man who raped your wife or girlfriend. Just a total disgrace. It would be like the United States honoring Al Qaeda for 9/11. Okay, not to that extreme, but I couldn't resist that line.
Dark day for Mets fans everywhere. Never too late to become a Yankees fan.
