Seriously, What’s the Mets’ Problem?

Do you want to know why people make fun of the Mets? Here’s why people make fun of the Mets:

2) Pitchers do not pitch like that, Mookie Wilson.

3) Keith Hernandez is not a catcher. He’s Keith Hernandez.

4) Neither of them bothers to explain to The Count that he only is allowed three strikes.

5) They also neglect to tell him that the point of swinging the bat is to hit the baseball, and that in service of this goal, he could count the number of times he hits it, which would satisfy both his obsessive need to count things and his team’s need to be better than the Mets

6) Fear of bats.

No wonder neither of them became successful major league coaches. Oh well, at least they fare better than Sluggo The Great, who seems to be a Padre or something, and who literally couldn’t find his ass with both hands:
