300 Words Or Less: Question For Mets GM Alderson: You Still Relaxed?

300 Words Or Less: Question For Mets GM Alderson: You Still Relaxed?
BY JOEY WAHLER

A gun-toting gangster once tells Bugs Bunny to shut up, but he nervously starts blabbing even more, bringing a classic response from the irritated man.

Sticking his weapon in Bugs’ face, the gangster angrily says, “Shut up, shuttin’ up.”

General Manager Sandy Alderson recently asked nervous Met fans to “relax,” causing many of them to react much like that cartoon gangster.

“Relax with the relaxing.”

The shelf life is now up on Alderson’s “What, me worry?” routine. Since winning 11 straight, the Mets have gone from 13-3 to 11-18. They’ve been outclassed by Chicago, St. Louis and Pittsburgh, losing 9 of those 11, sandwiched around a sweep of struggling Milwaukee.

Yes, a staggering 12 Mets are on the disabled list. Still, Juan Legares, Daniel Murphy, Lucas Duda and Michael Cuddyer should produce far more than this embarrassingly anemic Met offense, even without David Wright and Travis d’Arnaud.
