It’s no joke that this fanbase wants and needs their New York Mets to be on point when stepping in between those chalk lines, we need a World Series victory. So one thing that new ownership should look into going forward is how the Mets are spending their time off the field.
Now no one’s going to want to play for a team that has an owner and/or management looking over their shoulder at every turn, and I’m definitely not proposing that they do. However, how about a “Director of Sleep“ or a “Sleeping Coach”?
Sounds insane, doesn’t it? But if you look at Dom Smith’s numbers, you can easily see the improvements since he’s been given instructions on how to sleep. Yes, it’s for sleep apnea and that’s a serious condition but it shouldn’t be exclusively for him.
If the whole team has to wear oxygen masks while sleeping to make them better players, so be it. At the end of the day, these players will also have much better value on the market if any kind of sleep treatment is effectively working.
