Karma Gives a Beatdown on the Mets

It’s official: karma has taken a massive bite out of the 2009 New York Metropolitans. And I know the reason…

Citibank. Citigroup. Citi Field.

Father and Son Wilpon, you should’ve named the entire stadium – not just the rotunda – after Jackie Robinson. Instead, you named it after a bailed out, insolvent corporation that has taken billions in taxpayer dollars and exploits anyone in the world that it can.

I’ve railed against this particular name on numerous occasions already. But I became absolutely convinced of Citigroup’s curse this weekend.

At the beginning of the weekend, David Wright was the Last Man Standing amongst the Mets core players. Jose Reyes, Carlos Beltran, and Carlos Delgago have all been injured for most of the season. Various members of the pitching staff have gone down.

But David Wright was the solid presence in the lineup, playing every day and offering the only threat against opposing pitchers.

Until he got beaned in the head with a 93-mile-per-hour fastball from San Francisco’s Matt Cain. Because he suffered a concussion and the Mets season is over anyway, David probably won’t play again this year.

It’s CitiKarma, Mets. I hope you’ve learned your lesson, or it’s going to be a long 20 years.
