The Apple Solves Mets Road Troubles

You may have noticed we've been a little slow on the updates this holiday weekend.  The truth is The Apple was traveling on a secret mission to San Diego.  Now that we have returned we can disclose the secret nature of our mission.  Tonight when the Mets take the field they will enjoy a familiar sight.

The Apple sent a team of workers to replace the batters eye at Petco Park with a replica of the Citi Field batters eye.  If our plan works it will help the Mets make their league worst 7-17 road record look more like their league best 19-9 home record.

The move did not come without a catch though.  Petco Park staff would only let us install the backdrop on the condition that we also install a screen in front of the mound that makes all Mets pitchers look like Oliver Perez.   

Will our plan work?  Will Gary Matthews Jr. ever get another hit?  Did Kevin Burkhardt enjoy the halibut?  Find out tonight as the Mets take on the Padres at 10:05PM.

All articles featured on The Apple are fictitious. No Mets were harmed in the writing of this story.

  1. That's a good idea. My alternative is a partial change of managers. What we'll do is have Jerry Manuel continue to manage the team at Citifield where he is clearly competent. And then let Bob Melvin (Wally Backman or Bobby V ?) manage the team on the road where they clearly need new leadership.
