With spring training kicking off, all heads are slowly beginning to turn to the diamond and away from the hardwood. As fans get their gear ready and schedules cleared, some are unaware they could be in for a curveball.
KCC students are up at bat to answer; Will the New York Mets be worth watching this year?
“Hell no. I hate the Mets. I’m a Yankee fan for life.” -Luis Rivera, 30, Health and Physical Education office
“No. Sports are stupid.” Masum Mazid, 23, Chemistry Major
“I think they will be worth watching this year, they just changed the street name, the address name today so you know the Mets are coming with new energy, it’s still spring (training) so we’ll have to see. Let’s watch the first 40, 50 games.” R. Cameron, 25, Liberal Arts
“Yes. Peter Alonso, first baseman, nasty. He’s a truck, he’s gonna be rookie of the year. Jeff McNeil 2nd base or 3rd base. Rosario, youngin, Conforto. We got this closer, Edwin Diaz and Robbie Cano!” Adrian Huseinovic, 19, Sports Management
“Were they ever worth watching? Honestly I’m like, not really into baseball, but every time I hear about the Mets they always losing.” Dinesh Medard, 19, Mathematics
