Can the Mets Learn from the Jets?

jets_logoThough the New York Jets’ Cinderella story came to a crashing halt on Sunday, the team has nothing to be ashamed about. In fact, the season was by all means a success, compared to where they finished last year.

Toward that end, my friend Matt Cerrone contrasted the Mets’ annual lip service to the change in philosophy brought in to the New York Jets organization by Rex Ryan in a post titled “Opinion: The Mets Can Learn From the Jets“.

It was absolutely brilliant, on point, and remarkably … familiar.

Oh that’s right … I wrote a similar post with the exact same headline back in October, and reminded everyone of that same post this past Saturday.

Great minds think alike, eh?

Now, if every Mets blogger will write a similar post with the same headline, maybe — just maybe — Jeff Wilpon will pick up on the idea as something to implement.

Fingers crossed.
