It would be worth mentioning that Jeff Francoeur recently called Citi Field “a damn joke,” but of course, for that to happen, you’d have to track down someone who cared what Jeff Francoeur thinks. Or we could say, “Look! Look at Citi Field, all covered with snow. Ha, ha. YOU LOOK RIDICULOUS, CITI FIELD.” But of course, every surface in the northeast is in the same way. Hell, let’s not even bullishly shove the theory that the Mets could win 85 games in 2011.
Ladies and gentlemen, after quick stops in Arizona and Kansas City, baseball’s All-Star Game heads into Flushing for a little taste of the Big Apple. A taste which, just this past July, was ranked as one of the worst violators of public health laws.
No one official has finally announced that the 2013 All-Star Game will take place at Citi Field. The Mets haven’t said anything, either. How this got public is anybody’s guess. The point is, no one has wanted to play an All-Star Game at the Mets’ home facility since 1964. Most Mets fans will tell you themselves that the place blows and/or terrifies them
But anyway, that midsummer game people care about less and less will be hosted, theoretically, in three years by the New York Mets, assuming the rumor is true and also the Mayan prophecies don’t come to fruition.
