You’ll see a larger video scoreboard if you go out to Citi Field in 2015.
The Mets announced today that Daktronics will design, manufacture and install the new board, which will be 62 percent larger than the original one.
As someone who doesn’t have the best eyesight, I’m happy to hear about the bigger video board.
But I’d have been happier if the Mets’ off-season acquisitions hadn’t been limited to Michael Cuddyer, John Mayberry Jr. and Sean Gilmartin.
With the Washington Nationals signing former Cy Young Award winner Max Scherzer to a $210 million mega deal this weekend, FanGraphs’ Jeff Sullivan wrote that they’re building a potential “super team” in the nation’s capital.
The Texas Rangers addressed a need for more pitching by trading for Yovani Gallardo today. Even the Chicago Cubs and Houston Astros remedied roster shortcomings with their deal of Luis Valbuena and Dan Straily for Dexter Fowler.
Sandy Alderson hasn’t made a move affecting his major league roster since selling reliever Germen Gonzalez‘s contract to the New York Yankees a month ago today.
I don’t want the Mets to make a deal just for the sake of making a deal, and I realize that Alderson’s options are limited by budgetary constraints. But I’m a fan and I’m still going to get frustrated when I see other teams actively trying to get better while the Mets seem content with the status quo.
